Antonio Brown, the former NFL wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers has found himself in the middle of his latest scandal by insulting the Iowa Hawkeyes‘ Cailin Clark out of turn, calling her a sexist remark.

Brown was regarded as one of the best receivers of the 2010s after being picked in Round Six of the 2010 NFL Draft and managed to make a career out of almost nothing essentially, becoming a Super Bowl champion in 2020 and scoring 83 passing touchdowns.

But he appears unable to keep his head focused on the straight and narrow as evidenced by his stint as an owner of Albany Empire, firearms controversies, accusations of sexual assault and domestic violence and now his sexist comment to a 22-year-old.

As Clark was busy breaking records and closing in on records that have stood alone for 50 years, Brown was sat at home watching her on X, formerly Twitter, when he decided to comment, “B**ch look like Mel Gibson.”

Fans react to Brown’s comment

As ever, fans love a bit of controversy and they wasted no time taking to X, to react to Brown‘s comments with many finding them funny but quite a few also criticising the ex-NFL player for speaking up.

The tweet gained 46,000 likes from 11.6m views and 1700 comments with 51000 reposts after being uploaded at 11:35 on February 17.

One user wrote, “@AB84 [Brown] gets triggered when a white person has success.”

Whilst a second said, simply, “Unfollowed.”

A third added, “Delete this.”

Whilst a fourth said, “She’s employed and you ain’t.,” accompanied by laughing emojis.

A fifth commented, “I’d love to see Caitlin Clark dust AB on the court. And she would.”
