Adrien Broner's Homeless Guy

I WAS ROBBED

Violent Thief Stole My $1,000

5/25/2014 8:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



The homeless guy who received $1,000 in cash from boxer Adrien Broner says he was attacked and robbed ... and the thieves stole almost EVERY DOLLAR he got from Broner.

In a video posted on World Star Hip Hop, the homeless man -- sporting a nasty black eye -- says he was hours away from going to put money down on an apartment when when he was attacked by two men.

The man implies that he was targeted because of the video Broner posted -- and says he only spent $20 or $30 of the $1k.

The internet is powerful. Word gets around real quick, plus he probably told the wrong people himself. He probably could've gotten a secure mailbox or someplace secure he could've hid that money in. Or even lay low at a motel or something til he come up with a plan to get outta that area. It's too bad.

Bottom line - when you do something to help someone you don't do it to blast to the world. What the homeless guy does with the gift isn't the point. What started as a gift ended up as a treasure hunt for the useless.

What? On an apartment? What was he going to pay the rent with next month? I think the guy is pulling a scam now trying to get more money.
