Sergio Brown got thrown out of the club.

But he apparently still had his phone on him while he was on the curb watching people go behind the velvet rope.

The Colts safety went full internet-tough guy, posting a series of tweets saying he had “straps on” Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski before Gronkowski was penalized for throwing him into a cameraman.

Brown has since deleted all the tweets, but thanks to some handy screen grabs, it’s clear that he didn’t think much of what Gronkowski did.

“It’s OK someone has to b the villain,” he wrote. “I take that job. As long as y’all know that boy had straps on him.”

The best part was a few messages later, when he used a picture of a small pile of smiling poop (I have no idea what those things are called, though my daughter texts them to me often) to indicate Gronkowski’s stat line.

Gronkowski had four catches for 71 yards, including a late touchdown after the outcome was settled.

It’s not a terribly gracious look for a team that was thrashed soundly. We anticipate Brown saying he was hacked soon.
