It’s also inspired some hilarious memes
On Monday, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had 126 yards and two touchdowns in a 38 – 16 victory over Washington. In the third quarter, after receiving a 26-yard touchdown strike from Ben Roethlisberger, Brown put his hands on his hips and twerked like it was 2013. Immediately, he was flagged for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Today, two more penalties were leveled on Brown. One for his end-zone dance and another for having his number decorated on his cleats. The combined fines should cost Brown somewhere around $21,269. But, in typical Brown fashion, when ESPN asked him about the costly fines he responded, “Nothing to a boss.”
Not only has his move inspired a return of the oft-maligned dance move, but a lot of fantastic memes, too.
