Penguins take funny shot at Antonio Brown on Twitter
It’s safe to say that Antonio Brown had quite the fall from grace in the city of Pittsburgh, and the Penguins poked fun at that much on Monday.
Pittsburgh’s NHL franchise kicked off the week by live-tweeting their Game 1 2016 Stanley Cup Finals matchup against the San Jose Sharks, which aired locally Monday on various networks. When the Penguins found a tweet they had sent at the time touting Brown’s attendance at the game, they reposted it with the caption, “Awkward.”

Brown, the ex-Pittsburgh Steelers receiver, was traded by the team roughly one year ago, beginning his well-publicized downward spiral. These days, the seven-time Pro Bowler is so toxic that not even a single team wants him.
While Brown has been making some moves lately in an apparent attempt to get back in the NFL’s good graces, the Penguins’ tweet is a good reminder of just how quickly one can go from a hero to a villain.
