Add Pittsburgh Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster to the nominees for quote of the year.
“For the betterment of myself and my teammates, I'm going to stop dancing on the logos," Smith told reporters on Wednesday.
The fourth-year pro has been doing TikTok dances pregame on the logo at the 50-yard line, and did so again Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals. Then, the Bengals rocked the wideout, causing a fumble, in Cincinnati's upset win over the Steelers.
Apparently 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw wasn't a fan of Smith-Schuster dancing on the opposing team's logo. Kinlaw slid into Smith-Schuster's DM's on Instagram and said, "Them boys hit yo jiggin a-- out that Corvette huh" and added a laughing emoji. Smith-Schuster responded by saying, “Yo, tell this female to stay out of my DMs."
A real knee-slapper from the 24-year-old.
Kinlaw then responded by saying "I promise you wouldn't come to Levi Stadium in that corvette." So, how did Smith-Schuster counter? By bragging about a loss in a game where Kinlaw wasn't even drafted yet.
Smith-Schuster said he "already pulled up to Levi's in the Corvette and dipped." The last time the Steelers played the 49ers, Smith-Schuster had three receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 of the 2019 season ... but Pittsburgh lost, 24-20.
Is it 2021 yet? Get this year over with.
