Antonio Brown throws shade on ex-teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Antonio Brown celebrates a touchdown against the Cleveland Browns during an NFL football game at Heinz Field, Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018 in Pittsburgh.

He just can’t help himself.

Once again, former Steelers receiver Antonio Brown castigates a former teammate. This time, on the receiving end was JuJu Smith-Schuster in the form of a tweet.

Brown, who walked out on the Steelers last year, was traded to the Oakland Raiders in the offseason.

A Steelers fan on Twitter shared a picture of Smith-Schuster as the team’s most valuable player.

So, in ever predictable fashion, Brown, a 7-time Pro Bowler, commented on the fact that Smith-Schuster fumbled in the waning moments in a loss to the New Orleans Saints.

“Emotion: boy fumbled the whole post season in the biggest game of year,” Brown wrote on Twitter. “Everyone went blind to busy making guys famous not enough reality these days!”

Smith-Schuster didn’t take the shot lying down.

His retort was a little warm.

“All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league,” wrote Smith-Schuster, a 2017 second-round pick. “I was genuinely happy for him too when he got traded to Oakland w/ a big contract, and now he takes shots at me on social media?

“Crazy how big that ego got to be to take shots at people who show you love! Smh.”
