Like any popular celebrity, NFL fans roasted Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown after a bizarre meltdown in Sunday’s game against the Jets.
Brown refused to return to the game after being asked twice by head coach Bruce Arians to take off his clothes and leave the MetLife stadium after saying goodbye to the crowd. After the game, Arians Brown announced that he was “no longer Buck.”
Fans took to social media not only to mock Brown’s Sunday behavior, but also to watch the 33-year-old’s dramatic outfits throughout the season.
Here are some of the best memories since Brown’s wild exit from the Bucs.
After Brown’s explosion on Sunday, many fans called for a pattern of behavior. At the start of the season, he was disqualified for three games for misrepresenting his vaccination status. He was also accused of obtaining a fake COVID vaccine card.
After the explosion on the field, Brown asked the state troops to ride, but was told no because security considered him a fan who jumped off a barricade, not a player. He was later seen smiling at the driver after a big ride.
The other Brown-centered memes revolved around the receiver’s strangeness, only that he decided not to play anymore and suddenly left the stadium in the middle of the game.
Brown became famous for his arguments and bizarre behavior, but Sunday’s show seemed unusual. Indeed, some fans have used this as an opportunity to evoke the chaotic nature of 2020 and 2021, as well as a New Year’s optimism that could restore a sense of peace in 2022.
While people are still trying to figure out what happened to Brown, the NFL Twitter continues to joke about it.
