According to TMZ, the four-time world champ said the video “PSA” was in response to social media personality Andrew C. Caldwell sliding into his DMs.
"[Andrew C. Caldwell] if you don't get out my inbox before I punch the testosterone out yo GAY ASS," Broner wrote in a post which was also deleted.
You may recall Caldwell found insta-fame when video footage of him in church declaring he had been ‘delivert’ from homosexuality and is no longer gay.
In case you hadn’t seen that little bit of internet history:

For his part, Caldwell admits he sent the boxer a quick message to say “Keep up the good work,” but Broner went wild from there.
In a video post, Caldwell called Broner out saying Broner is a closet case who had been flirting with him.
Caldwell also brought up the 29-year-old’s lack of wins in the ring since 2017.
Broner’s last match was on January 19, when he lost a lop-sided decision to 40-year-old Manny Pacquiao, landing only 50 punches against Pacquiao.
“Chile, don’t make me call May Floyweather. You have have not won since May of 2017! How dare you come to my inbox! All I said was, ‘Keep up the good work.’ Next you know I’m gettin’ a tag talkin’ ’bout, ‘Stay out my inbox!'”

Caldwell also posted on his Instagram that he’s considering legal action against the boxer.
TMZ confirmed this afternoon that Caldwell filed for, and received, a restraining order against the boxer.
Axios is reporting former Vice President Joe Biden is considering making his announcement to run for the White House in 2020 a two-fer by also announcing Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams as his running mate.
Close advisers to former Vice President Joe Biden are debating the idea of packaging his presidential campaign announcement with a pledge to choose Stacey Abrams as his vice president.
The popular Georgia Democrat, who at age 45 is 31 years younger than Biden, would bring diversity and excitement to the ticket — showing voters, in the words of a close source, that Biden “isn’t just another old white guy.”
But the decision poses considerable risk, and some advisers are flatly opposed. Some have pointed out that in a Democratic debate, he could be asked why no one on the stage would be a worthy running mate. Advisers also know that the move would be perceived as a gimmick.
Even though she lost her race for Georgia governor in 2018, Abrams' star continues to rise. She delivered Democrats' response to President Trump's State of the Union address in January, and is said to be considering a possible run for U.S. Senate.
The Twitter feud between Donald Trump and George Conway, husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, continues to escalate.
Conway has been publicly addressing what he believes to be Trump's issues with narcissistic personality disorder, including “a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy.”
This morning, Conway wrote that one of Trump's own lawyer's once told him Trump "couldn't be allowed to talk to Mueller because 'he'd like his ass off.'"
The only qualifier to this is that his compulsive lying is also important to understand. He lies, as we have seen, about everything, about matters big and small, about things that matter and things that don’t.
It beat Nordic peers Denmark, Norway and Iceland in a ranking of 156 countries by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
The ranking saw the U.S. drop one place, to 19th, while people in South Sudan were the least happy.
The results are based on an average of three years of surveys taken by Gallup between 2016 and 2018 and include factors such as gross domestic product, social support from friends and family, healthy life expectancy, freedom to make life choices, generosity, perceived corruption and recent emotions -- both happy and sad.
According to the report published on Wednesday, Finland has witnessed modest but steady gains since 2014, and the country is now “significantly ahead” of other countries in the top 10, the researchers said.
Trans/deaf model Chella Man will play 'Jericho' in DC Universe's TITANS
The world of super-heroes is about to get a lot more diverse as transgender model, activist and YouTuber Chella Man has been cast to play ‘Jericho’ in season 2 of the live-action TV series Titans.
The 20-year-old, who identifies as Jewish/Chinese-American, deaf and genderqueer, announced the news on his social media where he has developed a large following documenting his transition including top surgery and hormone replacement.
The Brooklyn-based artist has over 255k followers on Instagram, 65k on Twitter, and over 173,000 subscribers on YouTube.
In his Instagram post announcing the news of his new acting gig, Man shared, “As a trans, Deaf, Jewish person of color, I have always reminded myself of the power in my differences.”
“It is a dream come true, now, as I will be able to showcase this power on the Titans,” he continued. “HUGE thank you to all who have supported me throughout this process!”

Man’s super-hero character, Jericho, has the ability to possess and control the body of anyone he makes eye contact with. He communicates through sign language as he was rendered mute as a youth when kidnappers severed his vocal cords.
When Jericho possesses another body, he can communicate using that person’s voice, vocabulary and language. The producers of Titans describe the character as a “gentle natured yet proud hero.”
The character first appeared in 1984’s Tales of the Teen Titans #43, and is the son of longtime villain, Deathstroke. Esai Morales has been cast as the father and will join the show in season 2 with Man.
While the original Tales of the Teen Titans comic books in the 1980s didn’t address his sexuality, his modern incarnation is openly bisexual and has an edgier quality.
Man joins the series which debuted last fall as the first original programming for the DC Universe subscription streaming site.
The show follows a team of young super-heroes led by Batman-side kick Robin, the empath Raven, alien princess Starfire and shape-shifting Beast Boy.
Director/producer Greg Berlanti (Love, Simon; Riverdale; The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) is a member of the Titans producing team.
Filming for season 2 of Titans is scheduled to begin next month.
Twitter lost its mind this morning when a quote attributed to fashion designer Tom Ford began to circulate wherein he reportedly referred to First Lady Melania Trump as a “glorified escort.”
Slow your roll, Twitter - Tom Terrific never threw that shade.
The quote that went viral was in reference to the designer refusing to dress the First Lady.
“I have no interest in dressing a glorified escort who steals speeches and has bad taste in men,” is how the quote read, but, no source was attributed.
The comment was probably somewhat believable in that Ford did say during a November 2016 appearance on The View that he had ‘declined’ to dress her some years before explaining, “She’s not necessarily my image.”
He went on to add that he felt his clothes were “too expensive” for a First Lady as he believed the wife of a president has to “relate to everybody.”
If a bakery can refuse to sell a cake to a gay couple, Tom Ford can refuse to share his art with someone with whom he has a fundamental difference in beliefs. He doesn’t believe in nudie pics, sugar daddies and plagerism. I get it.
Out Mayor Pete Buttigieg has already qualified for the Democratic LGBTQ Forum
For the first time in ten years, Democratic presidential candidates will share their policy positions and views on LGBTQ issues at a debate to be hosted by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and UCLA’s Luskin School of Public Affairs.
Scheduled for October 10, coinciding with National Coming Out Day, the event will be held on UCLA campus.
The topics will range from hate crimes, transgender rights, so-called ‘conversion therapy’ and more.
To qualify for participation, a candidate needs to poll at least 1% in three separate national polls, OR receive campaign donations from over 65,000 people in at least 20 states.
As Instinct recently reported, openly Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, has already crossed that threshold.
The forum will be one of 12 debates to be held during the Democratic primary season leading up to the 2020 election.
The last forum sponsored by the HRC took place in 2008 with then-candidates Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Dennis Kucinish and Bill Richardson.
It’s notable that LGBTQ issues have shifted substantially since then.
The U.S. Supreme Court declined the hear the appeal of a bed & breakfast owner in Hawaii who refused to host a same-sex couple due to her religious objections over homosexuality.
The initial lawsuit, Aloha Bed & Breakfast v. Dianne Cervelli, stems back to an incident in 2007 when Cervelli contacted the B&B owner, Phyllis Young, about accommodations.
Cervelli indicated there would be two guests as she would be traveling with her same-sex partner, Taeko Bufford.
According to the complaint, Young asked “Are you both lesbians?” Young then refused to board the couple saying she was uncomfortable having lesbians in her home.
The couple filed complaints with the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission which found Young had illegally discriminated against the couple. Hawaii’s public accommodation law clearly bars discrimination based on sexual orientation.
The Associated Pressreportedthat Young told the commission she is Catholic and feels that homosexuality is wrong. She felt her decision to deny accommodations to the couple was protected by her right to free exercise of her religious beliefs under the First Amendment.
Lambda Legal filed a lawsuit on behalf of the couple in 2011, along with the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission as co-plaintiffs.
In April of 2013, the Hawaii First Circuit Court ruled in favorof Cervelli.
The B&B owner tried to take her case to the Hawaii state Supreme Court, but the high court refusedthe hear the appeal last year.
In October, Young filed a petition to have her appeal heard at the U.S. Supreme Court.
As SCOTUS has declined to take up the case, Young has exhausted her legal options and the ruling by the lower court will stand.
Peter Renn, counsel for Lambda Legal’s Western Regional Office, celebrated the news.
“The Supreme Court’s decision to let the lower court ruling stand reaffirms that the freedom of religion does not give businesses a right to violate nondiscrimination laws that protect all individuals from harm, whether on the basis of race, gender or sexual orientation,” said Renn in a statement to the Washington Blade. “The Supreme Court declined to consider carving out an exception from this basic principle when a business discriminates based on the sexual orientation of its customers.”
“LGBT people deserve an equal right to go about their everyday life without the fear that discrimination waits for them around the corner,” he added.
