It Wasn’t Me!: Former Steelers WR Antonio Brown Claims Snapchat was Hacked



Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown has an explanation for the sexually-explicit private picture that was posted on his Snapchat story Tuesday. Or, uh, not much of one. In a Wednesday afternoon tweet, the former standout Pittsburgh Steelers wideout said his account was hacked, trying to skirt the blame for the Not Safe For Work content.

The tweet was Brown’s first comment on the situation. A spokesperson for the social media app told TMZ Sports Tuesday that Brown’s Snapchat account has been suspended and an investigation has begun on the matter.

Making it even more of a head-scratcher was the fact that the woman in the photo was Chelsie Kyriss, the mother of Brown’s children. The photo even followed a string of pictures of his kids.

Kyriss released a statement shortly after the post, saying, “I have reported his page and all pictures. Unfortunately Snapchat is allowing him to repost. I am very sorry for any of your kids that follow him and used to look at him as a role model.”

The episode is yet another that Steelers fans wouldn’t have ever expected from arguably the best statistical pass-catcher in franchise history. It’s been a slippery slope since Antonio Brown forced his way out of Pittsburgh, starting with the drama that followed his trade to the Oakland Raiders and most recently including a reported standoff with police.

He certainly won’t blame the post — or any other of those instances — on head injuries.

On the PBD Podcast in October, Brown was asked about the effect that some shots might have on his behavior and the receiver — who once appeared ticketed for the Pro Football Hall of Fame — adamantly denied that there was any.

“If they don’t act like you think they should act, you’re going to go back to a moment when they got hit and say you got CTE because you’re crazy,” Brown told podcast host Patrick Bet-David. “So, it’s like, my people, no matter what we do, we’re damned if we do this (or) we do this.”
