Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is probably sick of social media.

For the second time this month, Mayfield has come under fire on social media from a teammate’s father.

First it was receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s father who criticized Mayfield on Instagram, saying he wasn’t throwing the ball to his son. A short while later, the Browns traded Beckham Jr. to the Rams.

On Sunday night, the father of former Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, who is now with Cleveland, took to Facebook to share his thoughts about Mayfield while watching the Browns lose 16-10 to the Ravens. Mayfield completed 18 of 37 passes for 247 yards and a touchdown.

Mayfield has been dealing with a variety of injuries the past two months (shoulder, foot, groin), as Yahoo Sports noted.

Kareem Hunt Sr. noted it, too, and he said Mayfield is “scared to throw the ball.”

“Now I’m getting people on my Facebook saying I’m being like obj Daddy and I’m not I’m stating facts on football and what we see he’s limping he’s scared to throw the ball and they know he’s hurt they going to keep listening but if people don’t like what I’m saying unfriend me I’m not jeopardizing nothing I got a right to speak I ain’t posting no videos have a good day go Browns hopefully,” Hunt Sr. wrote.

After the game, Hunt Sr. posted again to Facebook and said “I told you so” about Mayfield.

“Last thing I don’t want nobody to be hating at me like I said new quarterback new situation we could have won this game long time ago I don’t know what the defense was doing they did good three interceptions or more all I can say is please don’t hate me I told you so,” he wrote.

On Monday morning, Hunt Sr. deleted the posts, but the first one was shared on Twitter.
