During an interview with NBC Sports, Roethlisberger admits that he shouldn't have called Brown out after he threw an interception that cost the Steelers the game against the Denver Broncos.
"I wish I wouldn't have done it," Roethlisberger said. "Obviously, we saw what happened. Obviously, it ruined a friendship. I got caught up in the emotion and the heat of the battle."
Once these comments slid across AB's desk, the wide receiver found it necessary to set the record straight.
"Never friends just had to get my ends," AB said in a quote tweet containing a clip of Roethlisberger's interview where he claims otherwise. "Shut up already."
Brown has been vocal about how Roethlisberger's comments fractured their relationship. He went into detail about his feelings during an episode of HBO's The Shop.
"The type of guy he is. He feels like he's the owner. Bro, you threw the shit to the D-lineman! What the f*ck? I'm over here wide open. You need to give me a better ball," Brown said. "But it's like in the league, you're going to have a guy from the team that'll be like, boy, you can't say nothing. I need you to get out there like, but it's like why I got to be acting?"
This incident was one of Brown's examples of his issues with Roethlisberger. In February, Brown tweeted that Ben has an "owner mentality" that creates a lack of "mutual respect."
Roethlisberger has expressed his regret, but the wide receiver didn't seem receptive. He said "Two face" in a tweet that didn't call his former quarterback out by name.
