Antonio Brown was nowhere near that, but was accused on Thursday of obtaining a fake card that included his vaccination against COVID-19.
This is reported by the Tampa Bay Times, a daily that spoke with former NFL player Stephen Ruiz’s personal chief. Brown allegedly asked his girlfriend, Sidney Morrow, to see Ruiz for a fake vaccination passport, which he was willing to pay $500.
Unsure of the vaccine’s potential side effects, Brown eventually bought two fake guides of his own, according to Ruiz.
In the Times article, Moreau said he did not know his friend’s former employee. Ruiz admitted to going to the media to tell this story because Antonio Brown owes him $10,000.
In a statement sent to the Florida newspaper, Brown’s attorney, Sean Borstein, confirmed that his client had already been vaccinated. The hackers claimed in writing that all vaccination cards were reviewed by staff and that no irregularities were observed.
Falsifying proof of vaccination is a federal crime in the United States. The NFL confirmed that it would review the charges.
