Adrien Broner is no stranger to saying and doing some pretty ignorant things. But he outdid himself on Saturday night after he beat Carlos Molina. During an interview with Jim Gray, Broner referred to himself as the "Can Man" and then shocked the crowd with what he said next.
"I'm Afri-can," he yelled, "I just beat the fuck out of a Mexi-can."
And that statement obviously did not sit well with a lot of people on Twitter. Here is how the majority of them reacted:
I'm still trippin on how ignorant Broner sounded in that post fight interview— Kyle Inman (@DrHoopenstein) May 4, 2014
Looks like Broner just one-upped Donald Sterling this week in the ignorant racist department. I thought it can't be done #MayweatherMaidana.— Brian Edward Jerry (@BrianEJerry) May 4, 2014
Broner so disrespectful. There's confidence and then there is arrogance. He crossed the line. Ignorant. Just ignorant.— Joshua (@GoodeThought) May 4, 2014
Broner is sorry, though. Er, at least, a little bit sorry. Because he spoke with TMZ Sports a short time ago and revealed that he didn't mean to insult Mexican people or Molina with his post-fight statement.
"I love all Mexicans," he said. "Molina put up a hard fight."
Hmmm…That's not exactly the most heartfelt apology we've ever heard. But it sounds like that's all we're going to get out of A.B. And we can't really say that we're all that surprised.
