Antonio Brown's attempt at shaming JuJu Smith-Schuster backfires

To while Brown proceeded to throw Smith-Schuster under the bus for his fumble against the New Orleans Saints last season.

He keeps his emotions off the internet. The fact that the honor went to the second-year player, who led the Steelers with 111 catches for 1,426 yards, and not to Brown was reportedly a factor in Brown's unhappiness during Week 17, when he got into a confrontation with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, missed practices and meetings and was benched for Pittsburgh's season finale. That much was evident on Sunday, as the now-former Steelers wide receiver engaged in a war of tweets with followers and then an ex-teammate.

It started when Brown, who last week appeared to take a shot at Smith-Schuster when he tweeted that players who haven't been paid shouldn't be trusted, sent out a less subtle tweet on Sunday.

Smith-Schuster took to Twitter at 3:07 p.m. responding to Brown.

What did Brown think this post was going to accomplish?

Blizzard conditions likely for several U.S. states under 'bomb cyclone' threat
There are blizzard warnings in place over parts of Colorado , the Dakotas, Wyoming, Minnesota and Wisconsin as the storm forms. The Denver area could also see several inches of snow as a result of the winter storm , according to forecasters.

Smith-Schuster is poised to be a true star in the league and is loved by fans in large part because he is so humble. The loss was a massive blow to the Steelers' playoff hopes.

Smith-Schuster didn't take long to reply, sending a good old-fashioned, not-so-subtle subtweet less than one hour later, mimicking Brown's message from earlier in the afternoon.

Smith-Schuster posted a quote from Mark Twain saying, "Never argue with a fool".

As football fans know, Brown would eventually get traded to the Oakland Raiders, and any slim chance of the speedster ending up in Los Angeles was quickly thrown out the window, which seems for the best after looking at what the wideout has been up to lately.

Looks like Brown might need to watch his back during that game.
