Antonio Brown is never too far away from controversy. He recently got into trouble for exposing himself to a woman in the UAE. On the heels of that, he finds himself in the headlines once more amidst Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen’s divorce. Fans think he is disrespecting the NFL legend with his Twitter antics.
Tom and Gisele confirmed their separation on Friday. However, Brown started posting about Gisele long before that.
In 2021, Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Superbowl, handing Brady his 7th and Brown, his 1st Superbowl title. After the match, the player’s family members were on the pitch to greet their loved ones. During that, Gisele ran into Antonio Brown and gave him a big hug.
Brown posted a video of the incident on his Twitter account prior to the couple’s divorce. Not just that, he also made a t-shirt and printed a photo of the moment when Gisele hugged him. Fans thought it was pretty disrespectful of Antonio to do so. In a recent appearance on the “Valuetainment” podcast, Brown clarified his comments.
“I’m not smashing his girl, what do you mean? It’s a t-shirt that raised money from a real moment that happened. How is this a reach?”
“People go through a divorce everyday. What about me? What about when I’m in the news and people say I’m crazy? I’ts just a picture from the Super Bowl. His divorce is his personal life, I ain’t got nothing to do with that bro. A lot of the things I’ve said tonight you guys are never going to understand. How am I going to make you understand if I’m telling you what I think and you can sort out what I think? Just so you can marginalize what’s respect and what’s not?” (h/t via Marca)
Fans slam Antonio Brown for his comments on Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady
Antonio Brown was Tom Brady’s teammate on two occasions. They played for Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots. Brown and Brady were great friends as well. During their stint in New England, they also lived together for a brief period of time. Brady was more than happy to let Brown stay with him as he stated the importance of his teammates.
Even after Antonio’s abrupt exit from Tampa, Brady did not lash out against the 34-year-old. As a matter of fact, the 45-year-old was nothing but supportive towards his former teammate. Following Tom’s initial retirement after winning the Superbowl ring in 2021, Antonio reacted to Brady’s retirement and called him the GOAT.
But recently, there was a change in Brown’s attitude when he mocked Brady in a few of his Twitter posts. Then, the posts on Gisele did not go down well with the Brady fans either. Under the YouTube video of Brown’s clarification comments, fans outpoured their frustrations.
User @Raul Vargas-Ramos wrote, “What zero accountability looks like. My man got defensive when Patrick said “he didn’t expose you” and then stayed completely surprised when the “he never did that to you, Brady had your back.” User @MO questioned AB’s maturity as they wrote, “AB is a great example of “age has nothing to do with maturity.”
