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.

He needed to get off the street once he had that money. He could've laid low at a motel or s'thing. Such a shame. That should've been his ticket outta there.

Gave him the $1000 then had some coons steal it back. Posted it on u-tube that it was a good deed. Yah right, Not!

Not surprised to read this headline at all! When I first read the story that he was given $1000 cash I knew he had a bulls-eye on his back. The guy is homeless - no bank accounts - so of course thieves would track him down - you posted his face on your website!! You could have blurred out his face to protect his identity but instead YOU TMZ dangled this guy out in the media like a piece of meat for the wolves to attack - and they did. Your hands are very dirty!
