Mexican Boxer Says He Agrees With Hitler That Gay People Are A ‘Plague’ In Now-Deleted Twitter Video

Mexican boxer Dario Larralde shared a rant via a video he posted on Twitter. He spoke at length about his “phobia” of gay people. The video upset many of his fans, particularly since the boxer says he supported Hitler’s idea that gay people are a plague.

Larralde has since deleted the video, but this is the internet — where everything lasts forever.

Another Twitter user uploaded a copy of the video.

Luisa Vox uploaded the video, saying:

“My intention is not to offend anyone, sorry if someone feels the opposite. I want to share this video with you, it caused me a lot of sadness and helplessness because absolutely ALL of us deserve love, respect, and equality. I can not believe there are still such ignorant people.”

The video shows Larralde saying:

“F*** me! F ***ing gays, I have a f***ing phobia … everywhere I go, every day, there’s always a f***ing gay punk on the corner watching me. And I hate it! Why me? I’m a f***ing magnet for gays. I was just shopping and I pass by the perfume section and s***! A bunch of gays. All the gays were there at that very moment! It was horrible.

“If I have gay followers, which I don’t doubt, I’m sorry, but you annoy me. Everything your community does, everything you do, everything you represent, pisses me off. I will never accept it. No.

“F***ing gays don’t ask you, they just accost you. They’re just there f***ing observing you at a distance just watching you to see where you’re going so they can follow you. What the f***?! Now I know how the women feel when they walk into the club and they get approached and women say ‘No thanks’ or whatever—s***, this is how it is with these guys. You tell them ‘NO’ and these guys get fired up, dude!

“And there they are right behind you, trying it like 10 times, until you f***ing beat the s*** out of them, they won’t understand. And you can’t even hit them because then they start with “Well, I’m gay!” Gays f***ing piss me off, they piss me off.

“I know that Hitler was a bad person, but I do support him in that. F***ing gays are a plague. They piss me off, they make me sick, I will never understand them. I hate them, I can’t.”

The vicious vitriol had gone viral.

Larralde has since uploaded videos apologizing for the comments. 

Larralde denied being homophobic and insisted that his anger was at being sexually harassed. His video has led to him, his family, and his girlfriend receiving death threats.

Larralde says:

“I offer a huge and sincere apology… I have nothing against lesbians, nothing against transgender people. I have nothing against gay men.”

The boxer had to also upload a video expressing distaste for new fans following him who wish to commit genocide on the LBGT+ community. He has since said several times that he will be leaving Twitter but, as of this writing, he has continued to tweet and retweet elaborations of his apologies, condemnation of hateful followers, and explanations of his original statements.

For a time, Larralde claimed in his social media bios to be representing Mexico in the 2020 Olympics. Yet the Mexican Olympic Committee has denied that he is part of the team. Since the controversy, Larralde has removed this from his Instagram and Twitter bios.
