Antonio Brown went live on Instagram Saturday, and the result wasn't pretty.
I captured the video, which shows Browns arguing with cops about a female, in full right here:
"They got this girl out here acting like she lives with me. She gotta get up out of here," Brown begins in the video. "These girls be so broke they try to force they self in ... You can't force your way in on a GOAT."
Somebody off-camera can be heard telling Brown to "Take that off, bro." It's unclear if Brown was wearing something controversial or if he was telling Brown to turn off the live stream.
Brown did not turn off the live stream.
Throughout, Brown is speaking to a cop, complaining about a female driving his car and seemingly being allowed into his house.
"She's blocked at the gate and you keep letting her in," Brown tells the cop. " ... [Expletive] police don't help nobody. [Expletive] the police. [Expletive]."
Brown's voice is extremely hoarse throughout the video, which he acknowledges at once point saying he's been, "working hard as [expletive]."
Somebody get Brown help. Watching the video, there are two options: He's a master-level troll solely going after ratings and as much exposure — good or bad — as he can get. This is certainly one way to draw attention.
Or, option No. 2: He's in a bad, bad place mentally. It's really not funny or entertaining anymore, and it's a script we've seen play out before. It's always entertaining until it's not, and at that point, it's too late. This, coupled with Brown's Twitter rants, blasting his ex-girlfriend and mother of three of his five children Chelsie Kyriss and this latest live stream paints a troubling picture.
I genuinely hope somebody gets Brown the help he needs. He's played his part in exacerbating the problems, no doubt, but ignoring it is not the answer.
