Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been in the news for all the wrong reasons recently, and the Penguins are not letting it go unmentioned.

While Game 1 of the 2016 Stanley Cup Finals being replayed locally, the Penguins were live tweeting the game, bringing back some old tweets in the moment. While the Pens were previously thrilled to feature AB back in '16, it's safe to say that's no longer the case.

Brown has been in headlines recently for a wide variety of reasons, including two separate allegations of sexual assault, and one investigation surrounding potential battery charges.

Brown had a falling out with the Steelers, which included an alleged disagreement with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that resulted in the embattled WR being traded to the Oakland Raiders prior to the 2019 season.

After forcing his way out of Oakland, Brown signed with the New England Patriots midseason. Brown would only appear in one game, as he was waived by the Patriots after threatening one of his sexual assault accusers.

It looks like the Penguins are trying to distance themselves from Brown, but hey, at least his album is dropping soon.
