Uh-oh. Antonio Brown’s about to get his phone taken away. Following the Pittsburgh Steelers’ victory on Jan. 15, Antonio loaded up Facebook Live while in the locker room, and he accidentally caught his coach trashing the New England Patriots with NSFW language! See for yourself.
First off, it could have been a lot worse. Antonio Brown, 28, was broadcasting from a locker room, right after the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Jan. 15. The world could have gotten quite an eyeful of tight ends, full backs and more. Instead, they got an earful from Mike Tomlin, 44.
“When you get to this pint in the journey, man, not a lot needs to be said,” Mike said, according to ESPN. “Let’s say very little moving forward. Let’s start our preparations. We just spotted these a**holes a day and a half. They played yesterday. Our game got moved to tonight. We’re going to touch down at 4 o’clock in the f*cking morning. So be it.”
“We’ll be ready for their a**, but you ain’t got t tell them coming,” the coach added, driving the point home that those “a**holes” are the New England Patriots that the Steelers will meet on Jan. 22. The winner of the AFC Championship will go to Super Bowl 51, which is probably why Coach Tomlin was trying to psych up his crew. It’s funny, because the Pittsburgh coach then told his players to “keep a low profile,” which Antonio completely ruined by recording his coach’s speech.
Don’t expect Tom Brady, 39, to leak a similar speech from New England’s Bill Belichick, 64. “I don’t think that would go over well with out coach,” Tom said during his weekly interview with WEEI sports radio. “”When we’re inside of our stadium or inside of our walls there has to be a degree of privacy. What’s done in the locker room should stay in the locker room.”
Antonio has been in and out of trouble during the 2016-17 NFL Season. He famously got sacked with a $6k fine for enthusiastically twerking during a touchdown celebration in Week 1. That fine didn’t persuade him to tone things down.
During a Week 4 against the Chiefs, oddly enough, Antonio took the ball and thrust his hips in a very sexually suggestive dance. The celebration drew a $24,309 fine, according to the Washington Post. While the league may not hit Antonio with another penalty for this Facebook Live, he might be in even bigger trouble for making his coach look bad.
What do you think about Antonio’s video, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Mike’s comments are just “locker room talk” or does he need to clean up his mouth?
