Former Patriots star Antonio Brown says 'no more white woman' after a disastrous 2019 which included sexual misconduct allegations
Brown, who is currently a free agent, continued his streak of posting cryptic and bizarre messages on his Twitter.
There is little doubt to NFL star Antonio Brown's talent -- he has amassed more receptions than any other player since he entered the league -- but 2019 has not been a good year for the wide receiver. He has had fallouts with his managers and fellow players, been accused of sexual assault, and been involved in several off-the-field incidents but claims to have learned his lesson and has promised to make changes.
The chief amongst those changes? He announced that, as of the new decade, he will no longer date white women, tweeting, "No more white woman 2020."
The tweet was liked over 100,000 times and retweeted over 30,000 times, though if his feed is any indication -- it's filled with cryptic and rambling posts -- it is likely that he was just staying true to form.
It has not been a kind year for the 31-year-old, who found himself traded to the Oakland Raiders after his relationship with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger deteriorated to the point it was untenable.
His stint with the Raiders did not last very long and was punctuated by several unsavory incidents, including a confrontation with general manager Mike Mayock, and he was released without having played a single regular-season game for the team.
But his undeniable talents meant he wasn't without a team for long. He signed a bumper $15 million contract with the New England Patriots shortly after that included $9 million guaranteed, but that too was terminated after just one game.
It was over allegations brought against him by his former trainer Britney Taylor, who filed a lawsuit against him claiming he sexually assaulted her three times, as well as a second woman, who alleged sexual misconduct.
The NFL is still investigating those allegations, and Brown, who is a free agent now, posted on Instagram asking teams to give him another chance to play and promising that he had grown from his experiences.
"First and foremost, I’d like to apologize to my family, friends and anyone who I offended," he wrote, adding he was "deeply sorry to all who I’ve offended" and that his behavior was "inexcusable."
"If I’m ever given the opportunity to play the game that I love, I’m going to work extremely hard to show the world how much I appreciate another chance," he continued. "To the organizations that I offended, I offer my sincere apology to you and my hope is that you forgive me and help me move on from this minor setback. I look forward to competing and helping a team reach their goals."
