Pittsburgh Steelers' star wide receiver Antonio Brown isn't holding back in his response to one NFL head coach.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers' head coach Bruce Arians called the Steelers' wide receiver a "diva" this week.

"From afar, there's too much miscommunication, too much ... diva," Arians told ESPN. "I've heard so many stories — and I like Antonio, he plays as hard as anybody on Sunday, and he practices hard. He's just got to make better decisions off the field, be on time, do some of those little things."

Brown, unsurprisingly, has heard Arians' comments. And he's responded.

The Steelers' wide receiver took to Twitter to address them.

Brown also called out former Steelers' wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

"He didn’t draft me he drafted @ESanders_10 same guy who missed rehab to go on networks to talk about me on situation he have zero clue! Arians now wears kangoo hats n glasses but ima diva! Done seen it all then they say we friends stop lien," he tweeted.

Arians was the Steelers' offensive coordinator from 2007-11. He was the team's wide receivers coach for three seasons prior to that. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hired him as head coach earlier this month.

Brown, meanwhile, remains in major trade rumors, as it seems unlikely that he'll be back in Pittsburgh in 2019.
