Antonio Brown whipped out his phone in the locker room Sunday night after the Steelers took down the Chiefs in their divisional playoff matchup. In the background, as AB provides updates on how many are tuned in to watch his Facebook Live feed, you can hear head coach Mike Tomlin refer to the Patriots as “those assholes.”
Don’t buy the hype because this is a total nonstory. We heard about all the “locker room talk” when the Trump pussy grabbing story came out. That’s on the extreme end. Calling your opponent an asshole is tamer than tame. It’s as nice as it gets. I guarantee you this will not make the Patriots’ bulletin board because A) they don’t give a shit, and B) they are saying worse things in their locker room. It’s just not being captured on live video by their superstars.
The best part of this video is how Tomlin tells the guys, “Keep cool on social media, man. This about us, nobody else, man.”
Then Le’Veon Bell immediately makes a quick joke about opening social media, and Antonio Brown, literally 35 seconds after Tomlin asks everyone to lay low on social media, announces that 32,000 people are now watching his Facebook Live feed and films for another 15 minutes. Love it.
P.S. Can you film sideways on FB Live? Turn your phone sideways for me one time, AB..
