Anthony Joshua is at the centre of more questions regarding his social media activity following posts on the controversial Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe.
The 28 year-old, already at the eye of a storm regarding a ‘superior black race’ message sent to fellow-professional Eddie Chambers, is still sending out weird posts despite an investigation into a hack being performed by his team.
Serious questions now need to be asked about what is going on when a world heavyweight champion cannot control what’s put out on his media accounts, whilst a UK newspaper (The Daily Star) are now claiming ‘AJ’ has not been hacked on Snapchat.

Words accompanying a picture of Joshua on the social media outlet during his holiday in Dubai stated the following; “Mugabe…is your view what you’ve been told, what you’ve learned through research or what you’ve been programmed to know via media outlets?”
Another is said to say; “Why do they despise Robert Mugabe?”
Promoter Eddie Hearn is still yet to fully address any of the more controversial murmurings from Joshua’s accounts, whilst the man himself is not due back from Dubai until next week.
It wouldn’t be hard for Joshua to put out a video clarifying to fans what the situation is as many are now questioning his views on sensitive subjects like race and crimes against humanity.
An explanation is much needed at this point in time but whether it’s forthcoming is seemingly another matter entirely.
Joshua last fought when defeating Carlos Takam at the back end of October and has since been linked to fights against Joseph Parker and Deontay Wilder in 2018.
