British professional boxer James Hawley has deleted his TikTok account following backlash over homophobic comments he made during a video.
The controversy began early on July 22 as Hawley responded to a question regarding his support of queer people. Hawley made his homophobia clear.
“I a thousand and million percent do not agree with this, no,” he says in the clip.

“Listen, I can understand girls getting with each-other all the time in parties and all things like that,” Hawley rants. “I don’t care. I haven’t got a problem. I’d want them to get with each other in front of me. But boys, on the other hand, and transgenders, something seriously wrong with them. What in the earth makes you wanna change your gender and get f*cked in the ass. We, for one, aren’t sure what ‘in the earth’ could explain why people are LGBT+. Maybe it’s something in the soil? The tectonic plates? It’s a mystery.”

“I feel sorry for your families,” he also adds. He also refers to transgender people as “dirty c*nts.”
The video went viral after Drag Race UK alum Baga Chipz posted it to social media. “Today’s Scum is no other than ‘pro boxer’ and really hard man James Hawley,” Chipz posted. “Homophobic Filth. What a hard man. Report the Low life. What an absolute piece of dirt.”
With the online backlash brewing, Hawley deleted his TikTok account. Already his management firm, MTK Global, has terminated its contract with him. Call it a knockout.
It’s hard to believe there are people this stupid in the world…you put something on a social media platform like this, it’s an automatic cancel/firing- for 10+ years now…do they live under a rock?
I agree. And I also don’t understand why a boxer would be commenting on LGBTQ issues anyway. Dumbass knucklehead idiot boy should stay in his lane and talk about boxing and leave it at that.
Closeted gay acting out.
The answer is in your mirror!
We can’t figure out why people like you hate yourself sooo much. I mean why do you exist?
We don’t feel sorry for you. You are no longer a thought.
Being male homophobic/trans-phobic/anti-gay does not equate to being “queer”. However, being a decent looking athlete with some money who has surely been around a lot of different people but feeling the need to randomly create a hateful TikTok- it is kinda suspect. I’m guessing there might be some “rumors” about him, and he felt that was the best way to dispel them.
Overt homophobia equating to “secret gay” is cheap and a frequently incorrect, dangerous way to look at things. But a lot of dudes who contend with insecurities or religious guilt or dimensions or fluidity or confusions concerning where they are in the gender, romantic, affection, sexual, emotional, relationship spectrum do tend to develop internalized homophobia. Many of those types can’t help but exude that resentment, either subtly or not so subtly.
He’s not even decent looking. I’ve seen a better head on a mug of piss. He’s just homophobic and transphobic.
He fits into the conventionally decent looking category for most people. And why go the most shallow route to find an insult?
Actually there have been several studies undertaken that indicates homophobia is directly related to internalized homophobia accompanied by self hatred and they act out. Truly straight men generally don’t have a problem with gay people. They are secure in their sexuality. Look it up.
Found another one.
I am well aware of those couple of studies. I am aware of a lot of these studies and experiments. And I view them all with a grain of salt because there’s always biases and agendas behind them, and people are more complicated than a study can decipher. Whittling down homophobia to “secret gay” is problematic and undermines how much things like ego and religion and sociology and hetero pressures and toxic masculinity play into hate and divisions. Casual homophobia and viewing “gays” as lesser than is still pretty much the norm. I am however aware that overt, aggressive, unrelenting homophobia is sometimes a sign that other things is going on.
@Donston because I can and because he’s verbally attacked gay people so I don’t see the need to say anything nice about him but you start fights with me whilst defending this homophobe all you like, mate. You be you.
I’m just trying to figure out how long before he made this video it had been since he blew a guy. My guess is, within a week.
Me thinks he doth protest too much.
Man About Town
“We, for one” made me literally LOL.
It is shocking the large percentage of people that are born with limited intelligence.
The minute I read ‘something in the soil’ I realized his IQ was below 90 and the second he inferred LGBTQ+ having to do with the Tectonic plates, I revised that down to less than 60.
Dude, you should give up that boxing career before you have the last few IQ points knocked outta you head, you’re clearly running a deficit and can’t afford to lose anymore.
I 1,000.000.000.000% don’t care about who this person is or what he has to say. Never heard of him before this and he will remain dead to me. So…….please, ya’ll don’t give this any strength.Next>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
We can all agree that James Hawley is 100% homophobic/transphobic and what he said was unjustifiable. Also his fake apology was him wanting to be sponsored again since he was dropped from his contract.
Even so, us trans and gays can’t deny the fact that James Hawley is the hottest straight homophobe. We are known to fetishize straight guys so there’s no denying it. Honestly given the chance most gays/trans would still blow the hot homophobe regardless what he has said.
Especially trans who are desperate for a sprinkle of male attention. But then wanna complain when your bashed or they don’t wanna acknowledge you in public. Not all gay and trans fetishize straight men but since you do obviously keep that to yourself thanks.
