Shannon Sharpe Calls Antonio Brown “Clowntonio 6ix9ine”
Shannon Sharpe isn't happy about the recently released Antonio Brown mentioning the sexual assault allegations Sharpe faced a while back. In a meme he posted yesterday, Sharpe invoked 6ix9ine as he let the world know how he felt about Brown's social media activities.
On Sunday (Sept. 22), Sharpe posted a meme on Twitter that shows Antonio Brown's head superimposed onto 6ix9ine's face. He captioned the hilarious pictorial mash-up, "CLOWNTONIO 6ix9ine out here dry snitching on everyone. ♂️♂️♂️."
This reference is tied to Tekashi, who made headlines for testifying in court against two former associates and alleged gang members Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack and Anthony "Harv" Ellison last week. Brown was cut by the New England Patriots following sexual assault allegations and an offseason full of antics where he was also dropped by the Oakland Raiders.
The "dry snitching" Brown refers to relates to tweets Brown posted about New England Patriots' owner Robert Kraft and Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. In the since-deleted posts, the wide receiver mentioned all three men being accused of crimes and continuing on with their respective careers. For his part, Kraft was hit with two solicitation of prostitution charges. Meanwhile, Roethlisberger has been accused of rape in the past.
As for Sharpe, Brown posted a screenshot of old sexual assault allegations levied against the retired tight end. "Shannon Sharp the funny guy on tv still after this," Brown captioned the photo.
Brown also faced backlash last week after using Nipsey Hussle's "the marathon continues" slogan on Twitter following his release from the Pats. He has vowed he will no longer play in the NFL.
