Boxer Adrien Broner went on a homophobic rant following a social media beef with Andrew C. Caldwell.
In a video posted to Instagram on Tuesday, the 29-year-old can be seen walking around a store as he spoke to his followers. The short diatribe was a series of threats aimed at gay people to protect his manhood.
"If I ain't got my gun on me, I'm knocking you the f**k out," Broner said. According to Bleacher Report, social media star Andrew C. Caldwell said the four-time titleholder was a closeted homosexual. Broner allegedly made passes at Caldwell in the past.
For many people, Caldwell will always be known for the viral video capturing his miraculous transformation from a gay man to a straight one. He was "delivered" in front of a church congregation and now reportedly only dates women.
"[Andrew C. Caldwell] if you don't get out my inbox before I punch the testosterone out yo GAY A**," Broner wrote in response to the allegations of homosexuality.
TMZ reports the heated exchange was the spark which ignited the livestream response.

"If any f*g, punk a*s n***a come run up on me, trying to touch me on all that gay s**t, I'm letting you know right now—if I ain't got my gun on me, I'm knocking you the f**k out," the boxer said.
"If I got my gun on me, I'm shooting you in the f**king face, and that's on God and them. I'm not playing with none of these n***as. I don't like gay s**t."
The latest incident comes after a disastrous loss to Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao in January.
ESPN reports the young brawler has a history of sexual misconduct and was accused of kissing a woman against her will in 2018. He was charged with felony gross sexual imposition and abduction, according to reports.
Despite the media backlash, Broner indicated in an Instagram post that he had seen an uptick in the number of women direct messaging him.
As for Mr. "Delivert," however, TMZ reports Caldwell plans on taking legal action against Broner following the incident.
