Steelers’ Antonio Brown: Facebook Live locker room video ‘was wrong of me’

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will face the media Wednesday and inevitably face questions about the Facebook Live video he posted from the locker room shortly after the team’s AFC divisional playoff win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (84) holds up the ball after a play during the second quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium.

But before that happens, Brown took to Twitter late Tuesday night to apologize for his social media stunt and the distraction it has become, explaining “I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me.”.

Brown, who had six catches for 108 yards against the Chiefs, was live on Facebook while coach Mike Tomlin addressed the team in the locker room. In the video, Tomlin can be heard off camera referring to the New England Patriots, Pittsburgh’s opponent in the AFC Championship Game, with a profane label.

Earlier Tuesday, Tomlin was “bluntly honest” in his anger about the situation during his news conference.

“It was foolish of him to do that. It was selfish for him to do that, and it was inconsiderate of him to do that,” Tomlin said.
