Browns fans are holding a parade commiserating over their 0-16 winless season and not everyone is excited about the idea.

It's not just the fans that have an opinion about the upcoming event, former Browns player Joe Haden shared his view during an interview with ESPN.

"It is what it is," Haden told ESPN. "I feel like if you want to be that miserable and go have an 0-16 parade, then have fun.

Haden was a first-round pick for the Browns back in 2010. He played for the Browns from 2010-2016, missing the playoffs in each season. Currently, Haden plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers and will be headed to the postseason for the first time in his career.

Nonetheless, the defensive back still had some choice words about a parade that mocks his former team. 

"I just think it's lame. I think they went 0-16, the organization and everybody is not happy with it," Haden told ESPN. "I feel like the fans, they're not going to be happy about celebrating an 0-16 parade. I just think it's really lame."

Haden helped the Steelers go 13-3 this season, earning themselves a bye during the first round of the playoffs. 

The parade is being held Saturday and proceeds will be donated to the Cleveland Food Bank.
