Steelers' Receiver Antonio Brown Fined For Twerking

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.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
