Antonio Brown blasts Bruce Arians over ‘diva’ remarks
Even with wide receiver Antonio Brown’s Pittsburgh Steelers future in doubt, he’s more than happy to defend himself via Twitter.
The latest instance of this came after former Steelers offensive coordinator and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians referred to Brown as a “diva,” claiming he was no longer the same guy that Pittsburgh drafted.
Brown wasn’t having that.
He didn’t draft me he drafted @ESanders_10 same guy who missed rehab to go on networks to talk about me on situation he have zero clue! Arians now wears kangoo hats n glasses but ima diva! Done seen it all then they say we friends stop lien https://t.co/jALXyhQMAw

There’s an added shot at former Pittsburgh teammate Emmanuel Sanders, who recently criticized Brown’s conduct, tucked in there as well.
This probably won’t endear Brown to his Steelers’ bosses any. There’s a reason Pittsburgh seems eager to move on from him. This is just more distraction that they don’t really need, though he certainly has the right to respond to public criticism.
