The target of Adrien Broner's hate-filled video was an "ex-gay" man he accused of coming on to him.

Professional boxer Adrien Broner has gone on a homophobic rant in an Instagram video, threatening to shoot or punch any man who comes on to him.

The video, posted Tuesday night, is part of his ongoing feud with Andrew C. Caldwell, a social media personality who claims to be "ex-gay," TMZ reports. Caldwell said Broner had flirted with him, so Broner responded with the expletive-laden video.

If any man tries to touch him or do any "gay shit," Broner said in the video, "if I ain't got my gun on me, I'm knocking you the fuck out. If I got my gun on me, I'm shooting you in the fucking face." He used the n word multiple times in the post.

Broner further alleged that Caldwell had been sending him private messages, so he posted a written public message to Caldwell, saying, "If you don't get out my inbox before I punch the testosterone out yo GAY ASS."

Broner, who has won world championships in four different weight divisions, "has been arrested and jailed numerous times, including for robbery, assault, gun possession, domestic violence and public intoxication," according to ESPN. He recently was accused of groping a woman at an Atlanta shopping mall and was charged with sexual battery, but the charge was dropped for lack of evidence.

Caldwell is considering legal action against Broner, TMZ reports. Caldwell became famous in 2014 because of an online video of a church service in which he spoke of being "delivered" from being gay.
