Antonio Brown needs to put down the phone.

It killed me to have to bring an Antonio Brown update yesterday. There are so many things going on in the world of sports and yet here we were, on the day of the national championship, talking about Antonio Brown going fool on some social media platform. Again.

And that going fool included taking a pointless run at Juju Smith-Schuster. A run so bad, so dumb, and so tasteless, that it had other pros who don’t even play either with one of them weighing in.

But the good news is that Antonio Brown learned from the public thrashing his reputation took after that tweet. He put his phone down and didn’t look back; hasn’t thought about it since.

‘Scuse me, my bad!

He immediately jumped right back on Instagram and posted this.

It’s a screenshot of a direct message from Juju Smith-Schuster when Juju was still in college. The message reads: “What’s up AB? I’m a receiver at the University of Southern California. I appreciate all your work. Your a great man on and off the field. Do you have any tips that can help take my game to the next level? Thanks man.”

Okay, there are a couple of things to unpack here. First of all, I am not a fan of publicly posting a private message. At all. That was a direct message that was sent to Brown and wasn’t for public consumption. If JuJu Smith-Schuster wanted that to be public, he would’ve made it public in the first place. So posting that is bull crap. 

And then there’s the second part, which is: WHAT THE HELL IS THE POINT OF THAT?

You posted a message from a then-college student politely and respectfully asking you for advice? SICK BURN!!

You really got him with that one, AB. . . . First off, I’m not sure what’s more bizarre, Antonio Brown’s obsession with  JuJu Smith-Schuster or the fact that he thought that message would actually be a winning message.

The outside perception is that JuJu has always been very respectful of Antonio, so then Antonio flips that on its head by posting a DM of JuJu …being…very…respectful…of…Antonio?

I really do not see him working there.

JuJu is so in AB’s head that he’s paying rent and utilities. This whole thing has jacked with AB’s mind so much that it’s confusing to see what he is doing and where he is going.

Oh, I got cracked on by everyone on twitter for bringing up the fact that JuJu fumbled in a game last year?

Well, how about this bomb I’m about to drop. Here’s a time where he was really respectful to me. How’s that taste y’all?  Yeah!! That’s what I thought!! So…Who’s the bad guy now?

And even better, is the fact that AB posted that polite message….STOOD BACK TO ADMIRE HIS WORK… AND EVEN enclosed a mic emoji in the caption. Like mic drop!

Look at this fool being polite and respectful to me! Boom! I’m outta here!


Hey, JuJu, tell me how your politeness tastes!

What’s next? Posting a video of JuJu helping an old lady across the street? Screenshotting a text of him complimenting you on having a good game?

Hey everyone, check out this clip of JuJu being nice to fans! ROASTED!

Antonio Brown is so turned around right now, he doesn’t know what’s up and what’s down. He’s done to himself what he does to defensive backs. He’s got tied himself in knots.

Did he really think that posting a message of JuJu being nice to him would be a mic drop moment?

I can’t figure it out, but maybe the thinking inside AB’s head is that posting this proves that I’m the alpha because JuJu came to me for advice. Right! He came to you for advice when he was in college. That’s what guys do. And he did it in a very polite and respectful way.

And then you out him for…being polite? How does that work? AGAIN, SICKEST FREAKIN BURN EVER.

I’ve said before that Antonio Brown needs to put down the phone, but that’s obviously not happening. So now someone needs to do it for him.

Someone needs to step in. Someone in his corner needs to throw in the towel, because right now, he’s a fighter who is out on his feet and just blindly throwing punches. And the only time he’s connecting is when he hits himself.

I’m not sure what the fight is right now. I don’t know who Antonio Brown is fighting or why. I just know that Antonio Brown is losing and he’s not stopping. So someone has to stop him. Please.
