Coming out of a major win on Sunday night, Pittsburgh Steelers’ most famous wide receiver, Antonio Brown, made a simple mistake—a mistake he has been getting hit very hard for. After defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 18-16, Brown streamed the post-game celebrations of the locker room on Facebook Live, catching Coach Mike Tomlin’s private comments and revealing Brown’s teammates reactions.

Brown issued an apology Tuesday morning, “First, I’d like to take this opportunity to say that I’m sorry for my actions and behavior after Sunday’s game. I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans.” Brown said in a statement posted on his Twitter account, “It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.”

Tomlin spoke on the incident Tuesday morning, calling Brown “selfish”, “foolish”, and “inconsiderate”. With Brown’s actions being against team and the NFL’s policy, both Tomlin and the NFL can choose their own punishment for him.

“We will punish him, we won’t punish us, and we’ll do so swiftly and we’ll do so internally. And I’ll imagine that there are consequences associated with the National Football League’s policy in that regard. I’m sure that he’ll appropriately absorb all of those things as we move forward,” Tomlin said in his Tuesday morning statement.

The NFL may also choose to punish Brown, possibly with a fine, given that he violated its social-media policy.

The Steelers are facing the Patriots in the AFC Championship game for the third time since 2002. Pittsburgh lost both meetings. Despite the video quickly going viral, Tomlin said it won’t be a distraction.
