Antonio Brown had some good intentions in mind when posting a video about celebrations with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, but it was just awkward.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has had some struggles on social media in 2017, and it’s getting to the point where he should possibly just delete his accounts after a cringeworthy video with Roger Goodell.
Brown got together with the NFL commissioner on Monday, and decided to make a quick video for Twitter about Goodell’s lightened-up approach to players celebrating after scoring touchdowns.
Brown said “The best commish in the game. We’re allowed to celebrate now,” which surely had good intentions, but it just came out as one of those awkward interactions that you view like a car wreck. It’s awful, but you just can’t look away from it.
Goodell, with his reputation already pretty low for his punishments against domestic violence incidents compared to players deflating footballs, gained some props for letting players celebrate more. Brown, along with many other big names in the NFL, are surely happy about the rules, and the Steelers wideout wanted to share his appreciation for the man that runs the league.
Brown is widely known for some of his celebrations after his touchdowns in Pittsburgh, whether he’s twerking or jumping right into the field goal post in the most uncomfortable way possible.
He’s also known for some poor social media decisions, including live streaming after the Steelers’ advanced to play the New England Patriots in the AFC title game back in January. You would think he’d learn from posting awkward videos on his social accounts, but here we are.
Brown will surely end up in the end zone quite a bit for the Steelers in the 2017 season, and he’ll have plenty of opportunities to showcase some celebrations in some big games that Goodell will have to watch and ignore.
