Reason First: Can Boxer Adrien Broner Be Redeemed?

From his weird behavior on the Internet, Broner seems very bothered.

By Skyler SaundersPublished 5 years ago 3 min read

Boxer Adrien Broner is in crisis. In an Instagram post, Broner declared that he didn’t “want to live.” After a battery of legal and street nonsense, Broner has handled losing to boxer Manny Pacquiao in a sketchy way. The “About Billions” boxer faced charges related to untoward advances against a young woman outside of a Louis Vuitton store in Cleveland. While the charges never stuck, the profile of the pugilist became a bit shadier. Also, Broner found himself in disfavor for his unsavory comments against gay people.

What all of this behavior might spell is that a woman named Aneesha is struggling to come out of Broner. He might be yearning to break free from the confines of his former self and become transgender. His erratic behavior exhibits a man who has lost his way.

The suicidal posts are the crux to this whole issue. His mental instability is a clear cut demonstration of how a young man may make the transition into becoming a female and then blame that on his psychological state. Or maybe boxer Broner is just a gay man and has failed to “live his truth.” Internet celebrity Andrew Caldwell pushed forth a restraining order against Broner for invading into his Direct Messages.

If the problem persists, he may be looking at a mental health clinic or ward. There are few who are serious about suicide that would go to the Web rather than completing the ultimate do-it-yourself project. While there are scores of actually suicidal individuals who have taken to the Internet to state their frustrations and anxiety, Broner may just be doing this to score points with the LGBTQ community.

As he said that he would either “knock out” or shoot any gay person who would “run up” on him, he might be yelping out for favor of the LGBTQ for such bitter language. If he is to continue with this rhetoric, he would have to do it now at press conferences and other media events.

This shows that Broner may be going through something. Though he puffs out his chest and talks a good game, it appears that he might just be hiding a secret, allegedly.

In the squared circle, Broner projects the image of a solid, rough-around-the-edges sort of person. But his actions outside of the ring show a tale of instability and out of control thought patterns. To say that he doesn’t want to live is just a smoke signal identifying his insecurities. But his “troubling” posts paint a picture of how not to condone oneself on the Internet.

For him to pull the antics demonstrates that he is without restraint and must now seek attention on the Web. If he were actually suicidal, then the best thing for him to do would be to consult a psychiatrist.

As Andrew Caldwell, who declared that he didn’t like men anymore, concluded that Broner occupied Caldwell’s DMs and said more anti-gay slogans toward the young man. What Broner needs to account for is his heterosexuality. For him to use such words to disparage the next man and then have suicidal thoughts expressed over the Internet represents the lost little boy flustered by his own talent and unable to come to terms with being a straight man.

Broner has seemed to lose sight of all of the glittering prizes after his recent lost bout with Pacquiao. With mounting losses, Broner must regain his psychological standing. So, if Broner is ever to stand up and proclaim that he is a man, he should do so. Either that or Aneesha may be dying to come out of him.
