UPDATED 4/8/19 2:15 p.m. ET: The Antonio/JuJu saga is not quite over, as AB took to Instagram to share a screenshot of JuJu reaching out to him while he was still at USC. "Your a great man on and off the field. Do you have any tips that can help take my game to the next level?" JuJu wrote via DM.
Brown captioned the IG post with a mic drop and, "#OnToTheNext."
The comments section for AB's IG turned into a war zone for a few other celebs. Actor and comedian Michael Rapaport criticized Brown over the decision to share the screenshot; Kevin Durant, who has been in a back-and-forth of his own with Richard Jefferson, shared a succinct response to Rapaport: "Get a life."

The former Steelers wide receiver scoffed at the idea that JuJu was the team MVP for the 2018 season. The newly minted Raider decided to point out that JuJu fumbled during the Steelers' final offensive possession in a December game against the Saints. Pittsburgh ended up losing 31-28.

The unexpected attack did lead JuJu to feel some type of way. He wasn’t finished talking about Brown, pointing out that he was confused by the sudden broadside.

“All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league," he said. "I was genuinely happy for him too when he got traded to Oakland w/ a big contract, and now he takes shots at me on social media?”
