Pittsburgh Steelers star Antonio Brown fined for Facebook Live video

Steelers' Antonio Brown has six-figure deal with Facebook

Antonio Brown's Facebook Live video in the locker room after the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC divisional-round will cost the prolific wide receiver some serious cash. The league will look at how the Steelers punish Brown, and if the team fines him, don't expect the league to follow suit with a fine of its own.

Well, I'm not sure if this latest bit of news makes AB more selfish or less selfish, but it sure as hell explains a lot. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has a $50 million deal to do Facebook Live videos. He's still awaiting punishment from both the league and the team after violating the policies of both organizations.

The video had more than 1million views before removed from Brown's Facebook page.

Glazer reported Sunday afternoon that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin fined Brown earlier this past week for his actions last Sunday. We're going to touch down at 4 o'clock in the f***ing morning. So be it. We'll be ready for their ass'. Someone else is heard saying, "Keep cool on social media".

Tomlin has called Brown's actions "foolish and inconsiderate".

Brown later apologized and said he let his "emotions and genuine excitement" get the best of him as he wanted to share the win with fans.

The Steelers lost 36-17 to the New England Patriots on Sunday in the American Football Conference, missing their chance at the Super Bowl next month.

The Patriots will play the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI on February 5 in Houston. Could it be because he just got caught up in the moment nad did what any social media-loving millennial would do?

At the time, about 140 media companies and celebrities had signed deals to create videos for the live-streaming service, according to the Wall Street Journal.
