Broner Makes Disturbing Instagram Posts
Adrien Broner’s mental health issues have returned to the forefront of the fighters controversial career, as the former world champion took to Instagram on Thursday night asking for someone to try and kill him.
The fighter, who has been in the midst of legal trouble for the past year, first due to knocking out someone on the Las Vegas Strip and an alleged sexual assault in an Atlanta Mall, made these posts late Thursday night.
These posts, coupled with others revolving around his children and one of his children’s mothers have been the latest in a slew of posts featuring cries of help or frustration from the Cincinnati native.
This is the third time in as many years that Broner would make these types of statements on Instagram, the first being in 2016 where he would post a shot of a pistol and a message saying, “I don’t want to be here no more,” as well as “I’m sorry to my family and friends but I don’t want to be here no more,” the boxer wrote on Instagram at around 11:40 a.m. “This s–t too much.”
He would make similar statements in 2017, imploring someone to come and talk to him and whether or not people would feel the same if he was alive or dead.
If you are feeling this way and need someone to talk to, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, or contact a mental health professional.
