BOXING badboy Adrien Broner threatened to shoot gay men “in the f****** face” if they touch him during a vile homophobic rant.
The former four-weight world champion, 29, caused outrage on social media when he called out a male fan who had allegedly messaged him on Instagram.
The American posted a series of sickening posts and threatened to attack homosexuals if they tried to touch him.
In a clip posted on his Instagram story, Broner said: “If any fag punk ass n***** come run up on me, trying to touch me on all that gay s***.
“I’m letting you know right now, if I ain’t got my gun on me, I’m knocking you the f*** out.
“If I’ve got my gun on me, I’m shooting you in the f****** face. That’s on God.
“I ain’t playing with none of these n******. I don’t want that gay s***.”
‘BAN HIM FOR LIFE’
Social media users could not believe Broner’s actions and some even called for him to be banned from boxing for life.
One said: “Let’s hope this clown is banned from boxing for a while. He’s so irrelevant, maybe that’s why he said this in the first place.”
While another added: “This is absolutely disgusting. I know he’s doing it to try and get some attention, but it’s so wrong. Ban him for life.”
On Instagram, he shared a photo with his 1.1 million followers which read: “A @andrew_c_caldwell if you don’t get out my inbox before I punch the testosterone out of yo GAY ASS!”
He added the caption: “These n****** bold as f***!
“I guess I don’t do enough gangster s*** no more smh [shaking my head] for respect you got to shoot a n***** get a n***** shot every week…”
He followed this image with a post which read: “Man I ain’t go lie this GAY a** n***** got hella bad b****** shooting they shot in my DM.”
And it’s not the first time that former WBA champion Broner has been slammed for homophobic abuse.
After his draw with Jesse Vargas last year, he caused a stir when he described the decision as “gay”.

The 29-year-old, nicknamed The Problem, has found himself in trouble with the law on several occasions and was arrested just days after his loss to Manny Pacquiao.
In October 2017, Broner was cited for misdemeanour battery for allegedly choking a waitress at a nightclub in Las Vegas.
And in February 2018 he was arrested for allegedly groping a woman at a shopping mall at Atlanta, but the charge has now reportedly been dropped due to a lack of evidence.
