Antonio Brown Slams NFL For Unfair Treatment of Black Athletes, Later Backtracks
Former NFL star Antonio Brown is continuings his rant against the league. On Thursday (Nov. 7th), just one week before his reported meeting with NFL investigators, he called out the NFL for their alleged bias against black athletes. Antonio Brown alleges that even for black athletes who give 100 percent are still treated unjustly by the NFL, while making millions of dollar to fill their pockets. He states,
“Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this is unfairly! Making money off my sweat and blood F–k the nfl. I’ll never play in that sh*t, treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go f–k your self.”
He continues, opening up on the allegations against him.
“I’m just very frustrated right now with the false allegations and slander to my name. I love football and I miss it. I just want to play and I’m very emotional about that. I’m determined to make my way back to the NFL asap.”
In September, AB first made his shocking announcement that he was not looking to play for the league again after his fallout with the New England Patriots. Soon after being cut from the team, AB stated that owners shouldn’t be able to take back money players were guaranteed. He wrote,
“Will not be playing in the NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals, do whatever they want at anytime.”
“We will see if the NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up.”
Just three week later, the former Patriots receiver shared a video that he seemingly wanted his job back with the same owner he blasted on social media. He says in the video,
“The best receiver right now is at home in Miami. If you guys follow the Patriots, tell them to call me. They still gotta pay me, so might as well let me earn it.”
During this Instagram Live, Antonio Brown offers to return to Patriots. Also says bunch of other stuff, obviously.
"Tell em call me. They still gotta pay me, might as well let me earn it."

The decorated receiver has been accused of a number of off the field issues that include sexual harassment of a few former employees. AB was first accused on Sept. 10 of allegedly raping his former trainer Britney Taylor in May 2018. Taylor, Brown’s former trainer, alleged the wide receiver sexually harassed her on three occasions, including the alleged rape last year.
Days later, another allege victim came forward accusing AB of sexual harassment while she was hired by the receiver to paint a mural on a wall of his Pittsburgh-area home in 2017.
AB’s latest action online come as a surprise as he was working towards having his off the field legal issues resolved.
