“There’s one thing we all agree on, as well as the other people here,” Simpson stated. “For what Tom Brady has done for Antonio Brown … for him to pull what he pulled today is completely inexcusable.”

“Playoffs are coming up,” the former actor added. “And you pull this crap on a guy who literally went out on a limb for you? It’s total B.S. Inexcusable.”

According to the Associated Press, Antonio was kicked off the Buccaneers after a wild, shirtless exit from the field before the former New England Patriots quarterback led the Florida-based team to victory.

“He is no longer a Buc,” the team's Coach Bruce Arians said of Brown in a press conference. “All right? That’s the end of the story. Let’s talk about the guys who went out there and won the game.”

As OK! previously reported, the Miami native's brother spoke out about his sibling's on-air tantrum, labeling his actions as "selfish."

Desmond Brown told the Daily Caller on Sunday that he feels his brother's outburst transpired because he "wanted to get those incentives and realized it wasn't going to happen." Depending upon the footballer's performance, he reportedly stood to make nearly one million dollars through contract incentives.

"Maybe something happened in the locker room," Desmond continued, adding that it was "a real selfish move to leave [in the] middle of the game like that though."

"He probably realizes now that it might be over for playing in the NFL because that's what he do and not who he is," the concerned family member stated.
