Antonio Brown accuses NFL of being racist, says he is done playing
Antonio Brown says he is done playing football — again.
Amid reports that he is set to meet with the NFL next week as part of the investigation into the sexual misconduct claims against him, Brown took to social media on Thursday to once again blast the league. This time, he accused the NFL of being a racist organization and said he will never play in the league again. First, it was a Twitter post.
“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— the @nfl I’ll never play in that s— treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go f— your self,” Brown wrote.
Brown then took to Instagram to share a similar message. He also told fantasy football players to “let it go.”
“F— @nfl I’m going down another path no more making money off my blood and sweat!” he wrote in a separate post. “No more control of my name and body clear my name I am done with it ! So you fantasy f—s can let it go.”
No one knows what Brown is planning to do at this point, and that probably includes him. He has been posting training videos lately and talking about signing with an NFL team, yet this is hardly the first time he has claimed he is done playing football.
Brown, who is 31 and still very much in his prime, is probably trying to cope with the fact that he is not going to get off without some sort of punishment from the NFL. He has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, and that is not the extent of the trouble he has gotten himself into off the field.
Teams reportedly remain interested in signing Brown pending the outcome of the NFL’s investigation, but he is not doing himself any favors with his social media tirades.
