Antonio Brown displayed erratic behavior once again, a familiar pattern for the former NFL wide receiver, as he stirred up controversy on social media this week.
In a series of tweets, Antonio Brown, a former NFL wide receiver, made an inappropriate comparison between Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada and Adolf Hitler. This insensitive incident occurred on a day when Jews worldwide observe Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, one of the holiest days in the Jewish calendar.
To add to the controversy, Brown followed up with a succinct two-word tweet: “Adolf Canada.”
These tweets, widely criticized for their insensitivity, were posted after the Steelers’ victory against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday Night Football. Prior to this, Brown had expressed dissatisfaction with Canada’s offensive strategies and even hinted at the possibility of replacing him, citing perceived inefficiencies in the Steelers’ offense.
In the game itself, Kenny Pickett threw for 235 yards and two touchdowns, helping the Pittsburgh Steelers secure a 23-18 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. The Steelers managed to accumulate 333 yards and 17 first downs in this game, a significant improvement compared to their performance in the first two games, where they had only managed 494 yards and 24 first downs combined.
Despite playing on the road, it felt like a home game for the Steelers, as their dedicated fan base had taken over Allegiant Stadium. Pittsburgh is now looking ahead to their next game against the Houston Texans, aiming to continue improving their record.
