From bеing a star widе rеcеivеr for the Pittsburgh Steelers to thе “King of Controvеrsy,” Antonio Brown‘s journey has bееn a rollеrcoastеr ridе. Since his abrupt exit from the field in 2021, Brown’s antics have shifted from touchdowns to trolling, often landing him in hot water with the law and even on the wrong side of public opinion.

Dеspitе attеmpts to pursue a carееr in music, Brown’s pеnchant for stirring up troublе has rеmainеd unabatеd. With a long list of off-fiеld incidents, including social media outbursts, allegations of violence, and skirmishes with law-enforcement, Brown’s notoriеty prеcеdеs him. Now, this spotlight has shinеd oncе again as he aimed at his nеw target: Iowa womеn’s baskеtball sеnsation, Caitlin Clark.

Brown is known for his erratic behavior both on and off the field. Recently, he posted a GIF on his X account with a crude caption targeting the standout player of the Iowa Hawkeyes, Caitlin Clark. In his caption, Brown made a vulgar jab at Clark, writing, “Caitlin Clark looks like she keeps it hairy.”

Clark has been Brown’s target ever since she made headlines for becoming the all-time leading scorer in women’s college basketball. Earlier, Brown made some controversial comments about Clark’s ‘masculine’ voice and appearance, which put her at the center of attention.

In February, the Iowa women’s basketball star scored 49 points against the Michigan Wolverines, gaining worldwide attention for breaking a record that was untouched for the last fifty years. As Fox College Hoops made a post featuring her and congratulated her for becoming the NCAA women’s basketball scoring leader, Brown reposted the tweet. However, instead of congratulating her, Brown opted for trolling her appearance and captioned the post with: “B***h look like Mel Gibson #CTESPN.”

However, when the former NFL wide receiver’s comments about Clark received severe backlash from many fans, Brown later came online and tried to neutralize his remarks, saying that his previous comments were solely meant as a joke. A day after comparing Clark’s appearance with Mel Gibson, Brown wrote: “It was a joke, entertainment.”

Despite Brown’s criticism, Clark’s stellar career and impressive statistics stood out, leading her to be selected as the No. 1 pick in the 2024 WNBA draft. Clark has secured her spot in the professional league as the top pick by the Indiana Fever following her senior season at the University of Iowa. Reflecting on her journey, she expressed, “I dreamed of this moment since I was in second grade, it has taken a lot of hard work, ups, and downs.”
