Raiders' Antonio Brown Claps Back at 'Prejudiced' NFL With NSFW Tweet in Response to Helmet Debacle

The NFL threw a wrench in Antonio Brown's plans, as the Raiders wideout had previously found a loophole in the league's ruling that he couldn't use an outdated helmet.

Brown reportedly found a 2014 Schutt Air Advantage helmet, only for the NFL to the apparently tell AB he couldn't use it, based on the argument it would never be approved for in-game practice.

AB took to twitter to voice his opinion and disappointment, and the response had some racial undertones.

Brown calls out the league for prejudice, seemingly suggesting they're forbidding him from wearing his helmet of choice due to race. While the league does seem fairly hypocritical in this case, especially given the fact they were on board with Brown using a newer version of his old helmet to begin with, calling them racist (or something of the sort) won't go over well, regardless if it's warranted or not.

The NFL is making an example out of Brown, and as much as his agent and legal team is in search of a loophole, Roger Goodell and Co. aren't intent on letting one player dictate league policies.
