PITTSBURGH — Apparently both parties in this break up still have each other on their minds.
Just a few days after Antonio Brown poked fun at Pittsburgh’s high ratings for the HBO show Hard Knocks, which is featuring Brown and the Oakland Raiders this year, Brown responded to part of Ben Roethlisberger’s pre-game interview with Michele Tafoya from Sunday night’s game against the Tennessee Titans.
In the interview with Tafoya, Roethlisberger said that he wished he hadn’t called out Brown during the latter part of the 2018 season.
“We saw what happened,” Roethlisberger said. “It ruined a friendship.”

Two days later, Brown fired back on Twitter.
“Never friends just had to get my ends,” he wrote. “Shut up already.”
Brown’s tweet last week said “my ex still thinks of me,” in response to Steelers’ fans appreciation for this season of Hard Knocks.
