So if you watched the undercard last weekend, you remember this:



Well the WBC banned him for it...

Link
The World Boxing Council holds human equality as its banner and will not accept a former WBC champion to make racially offensive statements.

Since words have different meanings and can be interpreted in different ways , the WBC is issuing this open letter to Adrien Broner to either clarify what he meant with his words or to issue a public apology if those words were intended to be despective and offensive .

Adrien Broner is hereby suspended from participating in any WBC sanctioned Championship and will be excluded from the WBC Ratings until the time he makes a public apology satisfactorily to the public of the world.

Foul. He shouldn't have to apologize. Like he said, he beat the 🤬 out of a "Mexi-CAN".

    Unless dude isn't Mexican I don't see the problem would they suspend him if he said can-eh-dian (you see it 🤬 ) ? That 🤬 was light.

    I remember one of my friends saying he was being racist and although I can't stand Broner I defended him.

    It was a reckless statement but not racist IMO.

    Yea his statement did come off as inappropriate at the time ,esp when most viewers are Mexicans.

    Would of been racist if he said he beat a Mexicant or something, I didn't see the big deal, he thought he was being witty and clever, just came across like an idiot though.

    He was suspended for saying in a post-fight interview "I just beat the 🤬 out of a Mexican." Dont see how that can be foul.

    Granted, that was a play on a Richard Pryor joke that may be older than some of u, but yes, the suspension is justified.

    He's an idiot and for that alone he needs to be suspended.

    From what I understand if he just makes an apology or clarifies that he meant no harm, he is immediately reinstated. So it's really just a way to force this fool to see that there is a certain way you should present yourself and your foolishness is 🤬 off our viewership and paid advertisers.

    Admittedly, he didn't say anything racist, but his statement could be taken as racially charged, abrasive and inappropriate.

    Broner has to stop with the ignorant antics and just box.

    That is why he got suspended. Essentially they're tired of him making a public ass out of himself and want him to know "We can and will move on in this sport without you"

    Though what he said was classless and tasteless, worst things have been said and done in boxing. From Tyson telling reporters he'll 🤬 them in their ass till they love him while calling them 🤬 , to Bernard Hopkins throwing the PR flag on the ground. I'm not saying he should not be suspended, I'm just indifferent. Broner is looking like a joke though.
