Boxer Adrien Broner States "Going At It Is Gay," Also Has Thoughts On Mexicans
As of his post-fight interview last night after a match, people seem to have more of a problem with Adrien "The Problem" Broner than they normally do. The outspoken boxer's shtick involves telling it like it is (for his fake name isn't "The Problem") but even though boxing fans are used to Broner's antics, he done and did it by giving his unfiltered thoughts on Mexicans attending his match as well as by using the word "gay" to reference something negative. So 1995.
Broner was disappointed that his Sunday night fight with Jessie Vargas was called as a draw, and even though his fists were down after the fight, he weaponized words with:
Look at his face. It look like I beat him with what they beat Martin Luther King with. We ain't go at it. Going at it is gay.
Oh I forgot, he mentions Martin Luther King. He adds his thoughts on the cultural tapestry of Mexican heritage:
It’s hella Mexicans and shit in here. Everybody keep booing me and shit. They want rice and chicken. I want some motherfuckers that want some Coney’s around me.

It should be noted that Vargas is Mexican. Broner's comments have divided Twitter, with some understandably claiming that his words don't belong in the year 2018, and others noting that this is simply The Problem staying on-brand and cracking wise. Do you think Broner needs to find a new job as a standup comedian, or should he not be excused from his derogatory comments? Let us know.
Just listened to the postfight interview again. After the draw with Jessie Vargas, Adrien Broner said, "Look at his face. It look like I beat him with what they beat Martin Luther King with." Then he said, "We ain't go at it. Going at it is gay." He can be your champ. Ain't mine.

As a black man I am consistently embarrassed by Adrien Broner. Kids are actually looking up to this clown. There is literally nothing respectable, classy, or honorable about his antics.

Broner is out of control with that interview. Using MLK as a “joke” is just ridiculous. He said so many awful things tonight I can’t even count. No excuse. Get him OUT of here.

Adrian Broner’s poat-draw meltdown is high comedy - it’s like Jamie Foxx is playing him in an SNL sketch.
