Antonio Brown got his wish. The Pittsburgh Steelers traded him and the Oakland Raiders gave him a ridiculous contract. Even so, he is still acting like a petulant teenager on Twitter, taking a shot at his former teammate, JuJu Smith-Schuster, for fumbling in a Week 16 game against the Saints.
Emotion: boy fumbled the whole post season in the biggest game of year ! Everyone went blind to busy making guys famous not enough reality these days ! 酪 by the way check the list https://t.co/2SWWT8k0jx— Antonio Brown (@AB84) April 7, 2019
Mind you, Brown pitched a hissy fit and didn't even play in a must-win Week 17 game. AB should probably take his own advice and keep his emotions off of the internet.
Apparently, a 22-year-old winning a team MVP award is enough for a 30-year-old man who led the league in touchdowns to throw a temper tantrum like a toddler and demand a trade. This isn't petty, it's mean spirited and small.
JuJu finally responded. And the gloves are off.

JuJu claims he was respectful towards AB from Day 1 and was happy when he got paid in Oakland. His Twitter jabs come off as extremely surprising for Smith-Schuster.
All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league. I was genuinely happy for him too when he got traded to Oakland w/ a big contract, and now he takes shots at me on social media?— JuJu Smith-Schuster (@TeamJuJu) April 7, 2019
He took one last shot at Brown's massive, unchecked ego for good measure.
Crazy how big that ego got to be to take shots at people who show you love! Smh— JuJu Smith-Schuster (@TeamJuJu) April 7, 2019
He ended with a simple quote from Mark Twain. Short, but savage nonetheless.
The Steelers don't play the Raiders this season, so this won't be settled on the football field. In the meantime, pull up a chair, grab some popcorn, and watch the drama unfold.
