Adrien “The Problem” Broner’s career can be viewed in many different aspects. The most common aspects are either as entertaining or as controversial. He has put on some tremendous displays of talent in mismatched fights. Despite having some good moments here and there he has failed to have that showcase moment against a top-level fighter. His antics inside and outside the ring has either garnered him praise or criticism depending on what type of person you are.
You could say that Broner has modeled himself after Floyd Mayweather Jr, people have been saying it for years but Broner’s version is more raunchy. Broner has kept himself at street level and has gone on to show that you can take him out of the ghetto but you cannot take the ghetto out of him. He has done things like perform oral sex on a stripper, make a sex tape and release it himself to even getting shot at, punching a fan for no reason even had a warrant out for his arrest for beating the crap out of someone.
On February 8th, Broner went on a rather disturbing rant via multiple posts on Instagram that has left many wondering if he is mentally ill or is he building up to go postal at some point in time.
” Fuck everybody. Don’t nobody call my phone. Fuck family, fuck my baby’s mamas, fuck kids, fuck y’all kids, fuck my daddy, fuck my mama, fuck everybody and if anyone got a problem holla at me in the streets. Everybody will die. I’m out here by my mother fucking self.”
Broner continued, ” I won’t kill myself this time. I’m go kill a bitch first. On God!”
Broner is in need of serious help but it may be too late to get him what he needs. As egotistical and narcissistic as he is he may be well beyond help. He definitely needs it, he might be secretly asking for it but chances are he will never ask. Who knows what it would take to humble him as people have constantly fed into his oversized ego throughout his career. Something needs to happen before anyone gets hurt.
