Broner used homophobic slurs and made threats during the video, which was posted to his Instagram story.

TMZ has transcribed Broner’s threats.

Warning: Broner’s language is extremely offensive.

"If any f—, 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 got my gun on me, I'm shooting you in the f—— face, and that's on God and them. I'm not playing with none of these n—. I don't like gay s—."

Broner’s rant was spurred by accusations he was flirting with another man. That man would be Andrew Caldwell, who went viral as part of the “I am delivert” video. Caldwell claims Broner “wants” him.

Broner last fought in January, when he lost to Manny Pacquiao by unanimous decision. It’s unclear whether Broner’s comments will impact when he gets his next fight.

Caldwell is reportedly meeting with his legal team to discuss whether he can take legal action, according to TMZ.
