Steelers Brown Threatens Writer On Twitter
Former Michigan State running back La'Veon Bell isn't the only Pittsburgh Steeler causing issues.
Antonio Brown sent a threatening tweet to an ESPN writer last week after a story was published that painted the wide receiver in a way he didn't like.
Brown, a former star wide-out at Central Michigan University, became irate after ESPN's The Undefeated published a story that put a spotlight on his social media use. ESPN writer Jesse Washington was trying to show Brown's life outside of his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
In the story, Washington spoke with a former chef and former trainer to Antonio Brown, both who were let go after a falling out. He also spoke with one of Brown's baby mothers, who also paints a poor picture of the receiver.
After Brown saw the story he tweeted at Washington saying "wait to i see you bro we gone see what your jaw like".
Brown also had sent Washington a direct message on Instagram that said, "Bro stop hitting up my people looking for stories stay in your lane."
Eventually, Brown apologized for the tweet. In a statement to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Thursday, he said that he needs to have "better control".
"I made a mistake in judgement with my tweet last week and I apologize for that."
