Tiffany Brockworth |

Boxer Ryan Garcia announced he is going to rehab following his racist rant on X last week.

On X, Garcia repeatedly used racial slurs and disparaging remarks about George Floyd, a Black man who died in 2020 after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes.

Garcia said that he hated “N-ggers” and that he also hated “Muslims,” and made disparaging remarks about the Jewish community.

“I take all responsibility for my words,” wrote Garcia on X. “I’m misunderstood, I just got a lot of trauma. And It’s been a tough couple of months as everyone can tell but I AM SORRY. I struggle with substance abuse and it hard for me with everything going on.”

“I actually love black people no cap which is why l’m actually said (sic) I offended all my black family and friends. This sucks but all I can do is be better and stop using stupid words and letting some people in my circle hype me up. Sorry everyone that I offended. I still stand on stopping black on black crime And that I hate pedo’s so that will always remain something I stand on,” he went on.

Garcia also issued an apology to the Islamic community.

The boxer has already been expelled from the World Boxing Council for his offensive tirade.
