After going from bad to worse during the offseason, it seems that the friendship between Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger is now officially over. Actually, it might not be over, and that’s because it apparently never started. Brown sent out a tweet on Tuesday claiming that he was never actually friends with Big Ben. The Oakland Raiders receiver also asked Ben to do him a favor and “Shut up, already.” Brown’s tweet included a video from an interview that aired on Sunday nightbetween Roethlisberger and Michelle Tafoya. During the NBC interview, Big Ben was asked if he regretted calling out Brown over a supposed bad route that the receiver ran during a loss to the Broncos last season. “I wish I wouldn’t have done it,” Roethlisberger said. “Obviously, we saw what happened, and obviously, it ruined a friendship. I just got caught up in emotion and the heat of the battle.” As you can see in his tweet, Brown’s response is basically: You can’t ruin a friendship because we were never friends. Although Brown would like you to believe that, that’s definitely not the truth. Back in 2014, Brown admitted that Roethlisberger was his best friend on the team during a Q&A on Twitter.
