Adrien Broner Hit With Restraining Order Over Caldwell Threat

Former four division world champion Adrien Broner has been hit with a restraining order, in the aftermath of his homophobic rant on social media - where the boxer threatened to shoot gay men “in the f***ing face” if they “try to touch him.”

Broner has been ordered to stay away from social media star Andrew C. Caldwell - who claims the boxer implied that he would shoot Caldwell in the face if he made a pass at him.

Caldwell filed a request for a temporary restraining order against Broner on Thursday morning in St. Louis -- which was granted by a judge. Broner must stay at least 500 feet from Caldwell.

Caldwell viewed Broner's video as a personal threat -- and in court documents obtained by TMZ Sports, he wrote, "[Broner] says on social media that he coming to St. Louis to kill me."

On Wednesday, Broner took to Instagram with his video comments - and the comments appeared to be a response to Caldwell sending him direct messages on the platform.

"If any f*g punk ass n*gga come run up on me, trying to touch me on all that gay sh*t, I'm letting you know right now, if I ain't got my gun on me, I'm knocking you the f*** out,” Broner stated. "If I've got my gun on me, I'm shooting you in the f***ing face. That's on God. I ain't playing with none of these n*ggas. I don't want that gay sh*t."

In 2014, Caldwell went viral on the internet after taking part in a church service - where he claimed to have switched from being homosexual to straight.

"Andrew Caldwell if you don't get out of my inbox before I punch the testosterone out yo gay ass!," Broner wrote on Instagram.

"These n*ggas bold as f***! I guess I don’t do enough gangsta sh*t no more smh for respect you got to shoot a n*gga get a n*gga shot every week..... #F***OutOfHERE."

Broner was last in the ring back in January, when he lost a twelve round unanimous decision to WBA "regular" champion Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

In the last few years, Broner has had several court cases for a number of offenses. Most recently, the boxer was cleared of case from 2018 where a woman claimed he groped her at a shopping mall.

I don't really see what Broner done wrong here? A gay drama queen was getting publicity off his name, and was even sending him pretty aggressive DMs of a gay nature. Sounds to me like this gay fella was just…

Lot of pent up sexual frustration coming from Broner. Add this to the maidana in ring carry on and it's clear Broner is trying to work through his own sexual confusion. He should just change his nickname to gAy B.
