Something About These White People Wearing “Antonio Clown” Costumes Seems Racist As Hell


Halloween these days brings a bevy of social media content material as folks exhibit their over-the-top costumes in an effort to go viral.  This 12 months, Antonio Brown’s NFL exploits and unemployment was a well-liked costume alternative for a lot of.

However, some followers selected to transcend simply impersonating Antonio Brown and referred to the Pro bowl receiver as “Antonio Clown.”

The costume may very well be thought of artistic because the receiver is jobless and has authorized points pending, however a majority of followers selected to go together with the clown moniker.

The unsettling facet is that almost all of those followers are predominantly white and appear to harbor vitriol in direction of Brown. The challenge is the overwhelming majority of the costumes lack in creativity and demean Antonio Brown with out an try at tying again to his NFL antics a lot if in any respect.

There’s simply one thing hella uneasy a couple of bunch of bitter white people trying to demean a black multi-millionaire as a result of he didn’t simply shut his mouth and catch the ball.

Many will argue Brown introduced this upon himself together with his actions, however does it actually make him a clown for wanting to go away the Pittsburgh Steelers and subsequently the Raiders? We can all most likely relate to not feeling like a piece surroundings was proper for us and wanting to maneuver in a brand new route.

Patriots proprietor Robert Kraft has his personal scandal, but allegations in opposition to Brown led to his launch from the Patriots.

This narrative doesn’t assist a post-Colin Kaepernick NFL in any respect during which the large wigs function as plantation house owners and any discipline hand participant that dares to talk up and have an opinion might be punished and ostracized.

Antonio Brown definitely might have acted otherwise in lots of cases and he has to cope with that as he can now not discover a staff to play for.  On the opposite hand, the toxicity of racially charged NFL followers rears its ugly head but once more.

Adam Thielen calls out Kirk Cousins and the narrative just isn’t him being a diva. Andrew Luck chooses to retire after coaching camp and will get paid his assured cash.

Ask your self if Antonio Brown on the Steelers (previous to Raiders saga) earlier than all of this might obtain the identical remedy in both of these eventualities.  The reply isn’t any. We all noticed when he critiqued Ben Roethlisberger and the way that rapidly manifested.

Brown caught wind of his mockers and appeared to take it in stride on Twitter, playfully jabbing at followers who dressed as him.

No matter how you are feeling about Antonio Brown it’s clear there’s a adverse angle that many followers take in direction of Black gamers within the NFL who’re outspoken, whether or not it’s for a superb trigger like Kaepernick or extra egocentric private achieve like Antonio Brown.

Both are met with hatred and no try of understanding.  Hopefully, the fan base can develop to the purpose of respecting and understanding the lads beneath these helmets.
