Ryan Garcia has been called out online for quite some time now. The lightweight boxer’s antics on social media have fans concerned for his well-being. KingRy was also captured in a drunken stupor on multiple occasions.

However, the lightweight boxer’s recent actions have been called into question. 

Ryan Garcia goes off on black people in his recent tweets. Whilst using racial slurs, KingRy did not stop his onslaught. He also revisited George Floyd’s tragic death that occurred in 2020. However, the lightweight boxer failed to hold back as he disrespected the innocent man’s murder at the hands of the police.
