'Orange Is the New Black' Star Rips Adrien Broner's 'Hate Speech'

Adrien Broner is a homophobic “a**hole” — and should be charged with a crime for threatening to shoot gay people … this according to “Orange Is the New Black” star Lea DeLaria.

Lea — who famously plays Big Boo on the show — was leaving the Rolling Stone: Women Shaping the World event in NYC … when we asked for her reaction to Broner’s vile video. 

And, since Lea is openly gay … the issue of violent homophobia seemed deeply personal. 

“How do I feel about someone using those kind of slurs? I have a bigger issue with anybody who’s threatening gay people with violence simply for being themselves.”

“F*ck all the slurs. I’ll use any f*cking slur I want. What I’m talking about is that a**hole is talking about hurting gay people.”

Of course, Broner made the hate-filled video during a spat with Andrew Caldwell — a viral video star who claims the boxer had made passes at him. 

During his rant (which he posted to social media) Broner said … “If any f*g, punk-ass n**ga come run up on me, trying to touch me on all that gay sh*t, I’m letting you know right now if I ain’t got my gun on me, I’m knocking you the f*ck out.”

Lea says Broner’s language should be considered “hate speech and should be a crime.”

“Freedom of speech comes with responsibility,” Lea added … “You should not be allowed to incite people to violence against other people.”
