Did Boxer Ryan Garcia Just Come Out?

Emell Adolphus READ TIME: 2 MIN.

Is Ryan Garcia trying to tell us something? The controversial boxer, who is known for being hyper masculine and hyper homophobic, recently made a point to deny performance enhancing steroid use after his big win over opponent Devin Haney, ESPN reported.

"If I took the steroids then I'm forsure GAY," said Garcia about his win. Well, it wasn't long before the internet found out that he did indeed test positive twice for steroids, so is this the most complicated coming out message ever? Or is he simply trying to cover up for his performance in the ring.

People online were left scratching their heads.

"You missed weight and you took steroids
That's on you," wrote one social media commentator.

Another added, "This tweet alone is how I know he's telling the truth 💀"

Then for some reason Garcia tried to play the victim and claim that there is a targeted attack against him, comparing himself to Andrew Tate of all people.

"Second part of the matrix attack
Like Andrew Tate and my self
They make false claims and try to ban me from boxing or put me in jail
Crazy 🤯🤯🤯" Garcia wrote.

To be clear, Garcia tested positive for ostarine, a performance-enhancing substance that is banned, according to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which states: "Ostarine is prohibited at all times under the S1 Anabolic Agent category of the WADA Prohibited List. The number of positive tests involving ostarine has increased steadily over the past few years, with WADA reporting 28 globally in 2015."

As reported by ESPN, Garcia and Haney's urine samples were collected prior to the fight, but the results weren't known until later.

Garcia now has 10 days to request further lab analysis. But something tells us he will just continue to scream into the void.

"Everybody knows that I don't cheat," Garcia said in a video posted on X. "Never taken a steroid. ... I don't even know where to get steroids. ... I barely take supplements. Big lies, I beat his ass."

The jury is still out though on whether Garcia truly identifies as gay now.
