Rory McIlroy received some serious flack from fellow Irish athletes for skimping out on the Olympics.
Boxer Paddy Barnes used Caroline Wazniaki, Rory’s ex-fiance, as a way to call him out.
Hey @CaroWozniacki I think we make a great couple, what ya think @McIlroyRory pic.twitter.com/Fk2nbMjlRh

Teammate Michael Conlan had something to say to Rory as well, this time using fellow golfer Rickie Fowler as bait.
Hey @McIlroyRory .. @RickieFowler said your a pussy for not turning up! #OhhhhhFightTalk #Olympics #Rio2016 pic.twitter.com/A7lEMqWwuB

These Irish Boxers have some hilarious issues with McIlroy for missing the Olympics. After these two tweets you would think that Rory would be K.O.’d but you would be wrong!
Rory’s response is everything!!
.@paddyb_ireland @mickconlan11 good luck lads! If your boxing is as good as your tweeting it should be 2 guaranteed golds!! ?????

OHHHH. Paddy Barnes has two bronze medals, so maybe this summer will be his year to get the gold! If he does, he’ll have to share it with Rory.
Rory may be afraid of the Zika virus but he’s not sweating over some Irish boxers.
