Just a couple of hours after Antonio Brown’s disturbing Instagram Live splashed across social media on Monday, Terrell Owens, the Hall of Famer, showed up on Brown’s IG Story.

Listen to your team news NOW.

But first, a recap of said video:

There was Brown, cursing at the mother of his children, Chelsie Kyriss, in the presence of her, his kids and the Hollywood (Florida) Police. 

It’s ugly.

Truly staggering that Brown would share the moment on his own platform, thinking the optics would reflect in his favor.

During the scene, at about 10 am EST, per TMZ Sports, Brown claimed Kyriss, who he had previously evicted from his home, tried to steal one of his cars.

“B----, you don’t drive Bentleys. This is not your life.”

Later he’s heard shouting:

“Take that fish-looking b---- to jail.”

About two hours after, Owens appears on Brown’s IG story. He’s holding a football, talking about how he can run under a 4.5 40-yard dash.

During his customary Tuesday appearance with “Joe, Lo & Dibs” on 95.7 The Game, Owens spoke, in detail, about his interaction with Brown:

“No. 1, I’m a friend, first and foremost. And so, he knows. I went over there and talked to him yesterday. I’m not speaking out of pocket or out of hand. “

“He knows, we spoke at great length and I didn’t, I won’t divulge everything, but I told him first and foremost I’m there for him as a friend. I’m there because I care for him. I love him as a brother, as a man.”

“So, again, I didn’t appreciate some of the things that was often displayed throughout the media. And so we had a heart-to-heart. He respected that. And so, for whatever reason.”

“You know, I said, I’m not gonna turn my back on an individual because the world is turning their back on him, And so, at the end of the day, like I said, I’m going to pray for him, I’m going to be there for him. And he knows I’m going to shoot it from the hip, as far as my candor…”

“I’m not going to hold back. And I told him, ‘Look, man, you may not even talk to me ever again.’ That’s one of the first things I told him. I said, ‘You may block me. You may not ever want to see me again but I came to him, first and foremost, man-to-man. And wanted to let him know, ‘Like, bro, you have kids. You have a responsibility, No. 1, as a father to your kids.’”

“And so, he shouldn’t present him(self) in that light. Other than that that’s about it. I won’t go into details as far as anything else that we spoke about. But I told him, like, ‘No. 1, I’m there for him as his friend.’”
