PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown attacked former Pittsburgh Steelers teammate and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster on social media Sunday.
The former Steeler took to Twitter Sunday afternoon saying, “Keep your emotions off the internet.”
Brown later tweeted about a picture of Smith-Schuster depicted as the Steelers most valuable player saying that the second-year player, “fumbled the whole post season in the biggest game of year.”
The attack on Smith-Schuster continued with Brown going on to say, “Everyone went blind to busy making guys famous not enough reality these days.”
Smith-Schuster took to Twitter at 3:07 p.m. responding to Brown.
The Steelers wide receiver copied what Brown posted saying, “Keep your emotions off the internet.”
Smith-Schuster went on to say, “All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league. I was genuinely happy for him too when he got traded to Oakland w/ a big contract, and now he takes shots at me on social media?”
The second-year wide receiver talked about Brown’s ego.
“Crazy how big that ego got to be to take shots at people who show you love!”
Smith-Schuster posted a quote from Mark Twain saying, “Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.”
Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin said that he was “disappointed” with the way Brown left the team. However, Pittsburgh Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert said the team felt “comfortable” with the trade.
The Steelers and Raiders came to an agreement for Brown’s trade in early March.
