Former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown is speaking out after a video went viral showing him swimming around in an outdoor pool at a Dubai hotel and shoving his buttock into a woman’s face, completely exposing himself in a public pool.
He released a series of Tweets over the weekend, placing the blame on others.
Antonio Brown Releases Statement Regarding Viral Video
Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is speaking out after the shocking video went viral over the weekend. “It’s crazy to me that even after I retire there is disinformation coming out about me,” Brown Tweeted. “Ironically, during a time when the NFL is getting heat for allowing players to play when they’re clearly concussed. They’ve been using black men as guinea pigs.”
Brown continued to go on his rant in another Tweet, writing, “Every chance they get to sway the heat off themselves they use me. In the video you can clearly see she runs off with my swim trunks. If roles were reversed the headlines would read ‘AB having a wild night with nude female’. Yet when it’s me it automatically becomes a hate crime.”
What Exactly Happened With Antonio Brown’s Pool Incident?
Brown, 34, was caught in video shoving his bare bottom into a woman’s face before lifting his “manhood” out of the water and flapping it around. The woman, initially, laughed it off when Brown shoved his bottom into her face, but then was seen trying to swim away.
Brown then swam after the woman and attempted to tie a head scarf, which he reportedly took from another guest, and tied it around her head. The woman was able to take the scarf off, but not before Brown lifted the woman up into the air and slamming her into the water.
As the woman swam away once again, Brown is seen leaning along the edge of the pool and grabbing his “manhood”, yanking it out of the water in the direction of the woman. Two eyewitnesses told the NY Post that the former Buccaneers wide receiver exposed his private parts “several times” after the video ended, and even asked the woman, “You want it?”
According to a hotel staffer, Brown was asked to leave the hotel shortly after the incident occurred.
Antonio Brown Has a History
Antonio Brown was suspended for the first 8 games of the 2020 season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. This came after a former female trainer, Britney Taylor, filed a lawsuit accusing Brown of sexually assaulting her.
Also in 2020, the former wide receiver was involved in an incident in Florida, where he apparently attacked a driver of a moving truck which was delivering some of his personal belongings from California. He pleaded no contest to burglary and battery charges and was ordered to serve two years of probation, which included him having to take anger management courses.
Brown does not currently play for the NFL.
