When it comes to throwing Twitter shade, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown may have just reached the pinnacle today in posting out his happy Fourth of July message.

The four-time Pro Bowler took a slightly different angle than the rest of his NFL colleagues as he sent his Independence Day well wishes - employing full troll mode to take a less than subtle shot at New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

JPP, of course, suffered a career-altering injury last July 4 when a fireworks accident at his home led to the amputation of his right index finger. The hand in general was severely mutated.

It's not exactly clear why Brown would want to troll Pierre-Paul, there isn't any obvious bad blood between the two NFL stars.

Yet, the Steelers WR has always been a fairly outspoken character and maybe he just felt like he needed to be the one to address the elephant in the room.

Safety first

As for JPP, he is actually using this year's celebrations to raise awareness about the dangers of fireworks.

Teaming up with The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the 27-year-old Florida native has released a video in which he highlights the dangers that come with handling what are in effect explosives.

"I went to the hospital, and all I could think about was my son and was I going to make it," he explains in the video. "Now I'm just truly, truly blessed to be alive."

Pierre-Paul even revealed recently that he actually won't be in the country today to mark the celebrations. He will, though, most likely be in the country and across the gridiron from Brown when the Giants and Steelers meet on December 4.

Regardless of what happens when the pair meet, let's just hope tomorrow doesn't bring any similar stories to the one Brown referenced in his Tweet today.
