Boxing star Adrien Broner is in some hot water after a recent session on Instagram Live. The boxer went on a homophobic rant during his session where he ultimately ended up threatening to shoot gay people if they approached him.
“If any f*g, punk ass n**** come run up on me, trying to touch me on all that gay sh*t, I’m letting you know right now — if I ain’t got my gun on me, I’m knocking you the f*ck out,” Broner can be heard saying.
“If I got my gun on me, I’m shooting you in the f*cking face, and that’s on God and them. I’m not playing with none of these n****s. I don’t like gay sh*t.”
The comments come after Broner had an exchange with Andrew C. Caldwell on social media with Caldwell accusing Broner of attempting to flirt with him. Of course, Broner denied the allegations and claimed that Caldwell was the one who was actually attempting to make advances.
Caldwell is reportedly seeking legal action against Broner.
It is not the first time that Broner has found himself in hot water for his actions outside of the ring.
From the Daily Mail:
The five-foot-eight welterweight, who started his career with 26 straight wins, was cited for misdemeanor battery after allegedly choking a waitress in Las Vegas back in 2016. In October 2016, Broner scared his fans with some alarming Instagram posts that seemed to hint he was considering suicide. In September of 2017, Broner was recorded knocking a man out and shoving a woman in Las Vegas. Also in 2017, he was arrested for missing a court appearance connected to a 2014 disorderly conduct and public intoxication arrest. During that arrest, police noticed that Broner’s SUV had several bullet holes around the exterior. And recently Broner had misdemeanor sexual battery charges dropped. He had been accused of groping a woman at a shopping mall in Atlanta.
Broner’s last appearance came on January 19, 2019, when he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Manny Pacquiao for the WBA welterweight title at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
