In one of the more bizarre scenes in NFL history, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown ripped off his jersey mid-game and threw it into the stands. He then went into the locker room and got dressed, leaving his team behind at MetLife Stadium.
After causing an uproar all across social media, Brown hopped online himself letting off the tweet “Super Gremlin.”
The Buccaneers would complete a comeback and win 28-24. Following the game, Bucs head coach Bruce Arians gave a statement.
“He is no longer a Buc,” Arians said. “That’s the end of the story. Let’s talk about the guys that went out there and won the game.”
On the sideline, ESPN reports, Brown’s teammates Mike Evans and O.J. Howard attempted to calm Brown after he tossed his jersey and pads into the stands. Previously, Arians attempted to have Brown enter the game twice but he refused.
Tom Brady also chimed in on the controversial moment.
“We all love him. We care about him deeply. We want to see him be at his best. Unfortunately, it won’t be with our team,” Brady said. “I think everyone should be very compassionate and empathetic toward some very difficult things that are happening.”
