It seems as though it’s virtually impossible for former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown to do anything right. At an increasingly rapid rate, he continues to alienate everybody around him, and sadly, one can’t help but begin to wonder who much longer it will be before that also includes his own children.
It appears to be a relatively frequent occurrence that the police have to wind up at Brown’s residence as he publicly argues with one of the several women with whom he has had children, often hurling disgusting language in their direction. He has hinted at a distrust of ‘white women’ a number of times in recent months, which appears to stem from his problems with one of these women.
Brown found himself in the latest incident a couple of mornings ago, and in fact, he saw fit to broadcast it live over social media as he was arguing with the police, using language and tone that one might not often expect to be used in the direction of authority figures—irrespective of what view one might hold on law enforcement.
The entire sequence, which he himself filmed on his phone, reached his denouement when he literally threw a ‘bag of dicks’ into the street in the direction of the mother of some of his children. They were genital-shaped candies in a bag, and it’s entirely unclear why they were present or to whom they belonged. All of this occurred in front of his children.
The entire incident, naturally, brought him yet another round of poor public relations, which is remarkable since it was a product of his own narcissism with his decision to broadcast it. He drew the ire of law enforcement, in fact, who responded in kind.
“These incidents have caused an irreparable rift between the Police Department and PAL and Mr. Brown”, a spokesperson for the police department said. “We did not want our youth to be subject to this type of behavior nor emulate the actions of Mr. Brown”.
Brown had previously donated money to the associated Police League youth football program, and they have now returned that money, stating, “we will not take money from a donor that we cannot have our youth be proud of or represent our organization”.
As Brown continues to both praise and admonish the league, depending upon which of his personalities is dominant at the time that he has his phone in his hands, he continually and perhaps soon irreparably damages his chances of ever being given another opportunity to play in the NFL again.
Nevertheless, he took a swing at damage control anyway:
I respect authority with police the injustice just so unfair I had the biggest cop chase at @FIU ask Mario Cristobal in 2007 about the police how they had me gun point no reason then kicked me out school; pittsburgh police pulled me over before a game 2018 vs Carolina y us y me
