CLEVELAND — Cleveland native Justin Layne is headed to the NFL. Unfortunately, he was drafted by the enemy.

His family -- full of Browns fans -- had a tough weekend after Layne was picked by the Pittsburgh Steelers at 83rd overall.

Fans immediately began trolling Layne's father, DeAndre Layne, who responded the way any dad would -- by re-painting the family's Browns-themed bathroom .

DeAndre Layne called into local sports radio station 92.3 the Fan and told Ken Carman and Anthony Lima that he was hurt after his hometown team past over his son, who played at Benedictine in high school.

"Two nights before the draft they took him (Justin) out to dinner and made him feel good about getting picked. Then they slept on him, so here we are," Layne told Carman and Lima.

Layne shared that his son was wearing Browns socks while watching the draft, hoping that his hometown team would choose him. When the Browns selected Greedy Williams, the odds the Browns would take Layne fell.

"They got their guy, which is great, but we have to have a divorce at this point," Layne said on the radio show.

Layne swears he is no longer a Browns fan after his son was picked up by the Steelers.

Would that change if Justin was traded?

"Here's the thing. If your girlfriend cheated on you, would you go back? My girlfriend cheated on me, man," Layne said.
