After having his Snapchat suspended for posting a sexually explicit photo of the mother of his child, Chelsie Kyriss, Antonio Brown is claiming that his account was hacked.
On Wednesday, the ex-NFL star broke his silence about the situation that went viral on Tuesday and said that he was working with the social media platform to resolve the issue.

The photo in question showed Kyriss performing oral sex on the ex-athlete in bed. Although the picture was eventually deleted from Brown’s profile, not before being circulated on other social media platforms early Tuesday morning.
The timeline of the image is not clear, although it is more than likely that the snap in question was taken when the former couple was together. Recently, the pair have not lost any opportunity to make allegations against each other, the latest being Kyriss claiming that Brown sent ‘explicit videos’ to their son during an alleged domestic violence incident back in November.

Following the incident, Kyriss released a statement on the post saying that she was “very well aware” of the post. She claims to have requested Brown to keep the private parts of their relationship out of the public eye. However, he has refused to listen to reason.
I have reported his page and all pictures,” Kyriss said, “Unfortunately Snapchat is allowing him to repost. I am very sorry for any of your kids that follow him and used to look at him as a role model. I do not condone these actions as you are aware I have kids in involved as well.”

Snapchat, a photo-sharing platform where images disappear after a certain period of time, prohibits sexually explicit content. The social media platform has not corroborated Brown’s hacking claims.
A spokesperson for the platform told TMZ Sports that Brown’s account was suspended and an investigation was underway because Snapchat’s Community Guidelines “prohibit sexually explicit content and bullying or harassment of any kind.”
