Antonio Brown is one of the NFL’s best receivers. But while his football talents might be appreciated, the referees in Monday’s Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Washington Redskins game were not impressed with his dancing skills.
After scoring a touchdown to put the Steelers up 24-6, Brown showed off his twerking skills. The referees were not having it.
We can’t confirm, but it’s possible that Brown was inspired by Work, by Rihanna.
Either way, the NFL — which has a very specific set of rules about sexually suggestive celebrations — was not pleased.
I actually ran across this passage in the NFL bylaws today. Specifically bans "sexually suggestive" celebrations. pic.twitter.com/lbMGZzwpmM

If only the referee had announced “Twerking” as Brown’s penalty, we would have had the undisputed NFL moment of the year.
