Its lyrics promoted misogyny, homophobia, and transphobic connotations.
He was even going to appear at the Spring Fling concert, organized by the George Washington University, but because of all the controversy around the song, the students denied him the chance after starting a petition to have him removed.
His internet fame
Action Bronson has become quite popular on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram; also Twitter.
He has around 1.5 million followers and around 555,000 followers on Facebook.
He uses these to promote all his career endeavors.
That means he would have promoted his newest album “White Bronco” there as well.
So if you are a fan of his, you can just skip over to these social media platforms and see what he is getting up to next.
He got one thing right and that’s his weight
Even though Action is not married, when his son was born, he knew that he had to make a few changes .
The scale was sitting at 375 pounds.
So he started to wake up at 4 a.m. to do workouts.
He decided to drastically change his lifestyle in 2020.
And as we know 2020 was the start of the pandemic and Action suffered like many people have and are still with the pandemic.
He lost quite a bit of work and money.
This time, he turned his attention to his own health.
He started applying himself to do some very grueling workouts, starting at 4 in the morning.
He also went on a low-carb diet so that the pounds would fall off, and he did this in a matter of a few months.
He said he scared himself into starting a healthy lifestyle and now it has impacted his life; every facet of his life.
Action Bronson has loved exercise since he was a little kid already
He used to love to stay up at night watching all the Strongman competitions on TV.
So that by the time he was 13, he had started to lift weights.
He said he was a huge fan of Creatine, to the point that even his high school football jersey had the word ‘Creatine’ plastered at the back instead of his own name.
His father would always yell at him, telling him he was a ‘shrimp’; that the reason he was so short was that the weight lifting and squatting had stunted his growth!
You can see that Action had a hectic type of lifestyle, with his finger in many pies – juggling his music career, his food show, and now he has a newborn child too.
Suddenly it hit home when the pandemic arrived and it made him think hard and serious about the fact that he weighed over 25 stone, and he was only 36.
He knew he had to do something fast.
“I can’t be walking around at my age holding like close to 400 pounds. It’s a dangerous game we’re playing here.”
Now he says, he can’t go a day without working out
But he also says it’s become addictive for him to work out because he feels that if he goes a day without working out, he’s going to gain all the weight he lost!
That’s how it all literally happened for him, he dropped 110 pounds in just 5 months and he did it through a rigorous exercise regime and his low carb diet which was packed with high protein vegetables.
And he says he’s not done yet.
He says this way of life is “gonna be going on for the rest of my life .
I’m never gonna allow myself to not be in shape again.
It’s not worth it. I love life. I don’t wanna miss anything.”
Let’s check what he does for his workouts
He says he wakes up at 4 a.m.
Next, he takes care of what he has to so that by 5 a.m. he out of the door and off to the gym to work out with his personal trainer Dave Paladino. This includes 45-minutes of boxing and also other intense routines. Even though he has a strict regime, Action says he has become much more interested in food now because he is so fascinated by the nutritional value of his meals.
He said changing his diet was imperative to his weight loss, as well as going to the gym, plus “willpower”, of course.
He starts his mornings with protein shakes and scrambled eggs. The shakes consist of olive oil, almonds, fruit, protein, and almond milk. He makes two portions of the shake so he can have one before his workout and one straight after. If he needs a snack he will munch on roasted nuts with cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and honey
He says that in the gym, he is no longer trying to be the powerlifter anymore. He had a hernia op caused by lifting weights in the past. Those days are over for him, he says. What he does now is high intensity, high weights, and high impact – for that, he expects high results. “I work at that type of intensity about four times a week. And the other days I just run and do different types of cardio. I run on the bridge a lot. I try to get my stamina up, different things, mix it all up”.
For his dinner, he likes to ‘keep it light’ so he has a low-carb meal, usually consisting of chicken and broccoli.
Of course, he misses the occasional carbs like pizza and good pasta. As for desserts, he has completely cut this out of his diet.
He began sharing videos of himself working out in the gym. In July, he posted a video of himself working out, captioning it “down 80 pounds from a whopping 363 and still going strong.”
Action has been self-isolating in his home in Brooklyn, New York, during the coronavirus pandemic
Action says that during the pandemic, he has been cooking a lot because of it.
He says some of the dishes he makes are fancier than others, but he makes them with love so they turn out pretty delicious.
Because he has been a musician and also a chef, Action knows that it’s been these two industries that have been very hurt by the coronavirus pandemic to the point where he had to cancel tours.
These he knows full well can be pretty crippling for an artist.
Even despite all these, he still had a new album on the horizon.
It’s a pity that Action can’t share his meals like he has been able to share his new record.
Many find food hard to come by in the pandemic and many food services have had to close.
For Bronson, he misses going to his favorite restaurants, in fact, he says “I miss going to every single place.
I hate that I can’t just walk in and get something whenever I want.
I hate that other people can’t.”
But for now, at least he loves cooking and food, so he finds a lot of solace in his kitchen at home.
Look at 5 things that Bronson has cooked lately that have kept him so happy and healthy
1) Childhood meals
He says each day he tries to make something that he used to eat from his childhood days because they make him feel good.
One day he made ‘tennis-racket’ pasta with broccoli florets and some olive oil, garlic, and some crushed chilies all mixed together.
Doesn’t it sound delicious and so healthy and that’s literally what he had to eat in his childhood days right there?
His mom would make that for him a lot of times.
He reckons it’s the go-to dish when you don’t have much in the way of a lot of food left in the panty.
He says he just slices the garlic up, lets it fry up with the olive oil and chilies, allowing the olive oil to soak up into the garlic so it becomes soft.
All you do then is boil the pasta in very salted water, throwing in the broccoli florets, after draining them, at the end.
Leave just a bit of water left to throw into the whole pot and stir it up with some salt.
He says he has also been making a lot of bread, and even though he knows a lot of people choose sourdough bread to eat, he loves focaccia bread, gorgeous, fluffy, delicious focaccia.
He says it makes him feel so happy, but in general, baking makes him feel happy.
It takes him back to his childhood.
2) Olive Oil
Action loves olive oil and a year ago or so, a friend of his who is the top oleologist in the country; in fact, the top guy in the USA for olive oil, gave him beautiful Biancolilla olive oil from Sicily.
He tries olive oil also from many countries but can’t resist the freshest olive oil from the fresh harvests that come up.
He says he likes to use his olive oil seasonally.
And he knows how good it is for your health.
It’s the good fat that he likes to promote, the good, heart-healthy fat.
He has seen how the people from the Mediterranean and areas where people are heavy on olives live long, healthy lives.
How he loves octopus.
Active says he loves to roast it, cutting all the tentacles off and laying it down, making a carpaccio with some of them.
He also enjoys grilling them over some hardwood.
Another way he uses octopus is by making an octopus salad with tostadas.
He says the traditional way to prepare octopus is for you to bake it at 330-degrees for two hours.
It should be covered with tin foil, to which a couple of gloves of garlic have been added along with a dousing of olive oil.
He says one thing that is worth repeating when you do the octopus this way is you have to add one wine cork in there.
He is not sure why, but he says the cork somehow enzymatically reacts with whatever’s going on in the meal, softening up the octopus without having to throw it on the ground and beat it- no rubber there.
Then just wait until you take it out and see how delicious it is.
It is up to you then if you want to either grill it or you could slice it up real nice and make a nice ceviche with it.
There are endless things to do with delicious octopus.
4) Green juice
Action says he drinks green juice each and every day.
He says he’s getting used to the flavor and starting to really enjoy it.
In the past, he didn’t like to drink it because of the grassy sweetness taste.
But he says, if you balance it out with the right flavors, and use all the right greens, like celery and ginger for instance, and drink it freezing cold; he says it ends up being delicious, refreshing, and very healthy.
He usually makes himself a massive glass, but you can make yours smaller if you like.
How he makes it is he takes 40 oz. of cold-pressed kale, plus cold-pressed celery, cold-pressed ginger, and cold-pressed green apple .
He swears by this each morning – when he downs this he knows he’s doing the right thing!
He says being a chef and a lover of food makes it both easier and harder for him to eat healthily.
Healthy foods are the best foods to eat but the bests foods are not the healthy ones!
So you have to figure out how to jazz up things that.
Take for instance chicken cutlets.
They are not so healthy, but also quite healthy, it could swing either way.
So what Action does to make them healthier is he will take egg-white and not the entire egg, and use the egg-white to make the cutlets crispier – and healthier!
5) Colombian soups
Action says just about every evening he likes to cook something elaborate.
He has a Colombian girlfriend, so he likes to make plenty of Latin delicacies, such as pepper steaks.
Of course, he always loves to add bread with it.
But he doesn’t only cook for his girlfriend.
He and she have a son, too, and he cooks for him too.
They have introduced plenty of fruit for him and they let him try out sopita too, which is a Colombian soup.
Action says he makes a lot of Sancocho as well and they make a lot of a Columbian all-in-one-pot type of soup.
He adds three different types of potatoes in it, with corn, yucca, chicken, cilantro – the whole toot.
It’s because, for him, cooking is instant gratification.
And usually, it’s because most people like what he has made – seeing their eyes light up with joy at what he has cooked up makes him glad.
His diet is very important to him
He has had his share of medical problems that he says he “gave himself”, such as prediabetes, eczema, asthma .
He also always battled with portion control when it came to food.
“If I made something that was a big, round dish, I would eat the big, round dish. I wouldn’t just have one piece. It’s all diet, you have to just eat clean, no cheating, no bullshit, just eat clean”.
He says there are no tricks, you just have to make it as good as it can taste and you must like veggies, otherwise you find yourself eating just for nutrition and finding no joy in what you eat.
He says he eats a lot of vegetables – broccoli he loves.
And for carbs, he says he likes to eat wild rice.
He says lots of things that are high in proteins as far as vegetables go, he likes to eat.
He says he likes just about every vegetable.
He likes mixing them up as much as he can, to keep his waist slim and trim.
And he says he has been very strict.
And if he veers off a bit, like when he made an ice-cream for his new album Only For Dolphins and he tasted the ice-cream for the flavor, etc., he said he felt he was going to add on all his weight back after that!
Does he take supplements?
He says he did start to use them for some of his pre-workouts just to see if he would feel any different, but other than that, nothing.
He says his power drink for the gym is natural blueberries with almond milk shaken up together.
“As long as I can capture my health and keep right, make sure that I’m right, we’ll be good and move forward.”
He was interviewed in early September 2020, after coming off the elliptical machine, where he had sweated through 10 miles in a quid 45 minutes.
Then he was going to do a cardio session.
If you go to his Instagram, you will see him do 110 pushups.
Many people have spent the coronavirus quarantine time forgetting about their fitness routines and putting on weight, but not Action Bronson.
He went the other way.
He started in 2020, weighing in at 360 pounds plus and.
Just look at what he has achieved because he was so determined!
He has transformed himself, focusing mainly on his health this time and we can clearly see he is a winner!
Action Bronson says the key to success is to keep your eye on the prize and not to let yourself fall down. Despite his fantastic weight loss, you can see he has not lost his appetite for Life.
