PITTSBURGH -- Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster said he's done dancing on opponents' logos during pregame warm-ups after increased scrutiny to the viral videos over the past two weeks.

Smith-Schuster has danced on opponents' logos, as well as his own, during pregame warmups all season, but he said he's calling it quits because his teammates and coaches were being asked about it.

"For the betterment of myself and my teammates, I'm going to stop dancing on the logos," Smith-Schuster said Wednesday. "For me, honestly, I was dancing when we were undefeated. I was dancing when we lost our three games. I'm not going to change the person who I am.

"I think it's getting to the point where my teammates are being asked this question. Our coach is being asked this question."

Though coach Mike Tomlin previously said he wasn't aware of Smith-Schuster's dances, he talked with the receiver about it this week.

"Honestly, I don't want to be a distraction to anybody," said Smith-Schuster, who added he wasn't paid by TikTok to do the dances. "... If it's getting to the point where you're asking my teammates and coaches, there's no point. Ideally, I'd probably just do everything in-house."

Steelers teammate Joe Haden on Twitter said Smith-Schuster hasn't been a distraction.

"My dawg @TeamJuJu dancing is the LEAST of our problems! Take are Ls like a man a move on! See you Sunday"

Prior to Monday night's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Smith-Schuster posted his signature dance on the Bengals' logo before kickoff with the caption: "They told to stop dancing and not be yourself so . .."

In the week leading up to the game, Bengals' safety Vonn Bell said the dances were "disrespectful" and the Bengals defense had to "hit him and let him know where he stands."

Bell delivered a bone-crushing hit to Smith-Schuster in the first quarter and forced a fumble.

"It was a good hit," Smith-Schuster said. "I'll give it to him. The timing, where he was at, where I was at, me catching the football, he made a great hit. I can't knock him for that. He's a great safety."

Smith-Schuster is done dancing -- at least for now -- but his teammates haven't had a problem with Smith-Schuster being himself.

"I think we've got to leave it alone," defensive captain Cam Heyward said. "I think people will talk to him, so be it. We're only talking about it because we're losing. We're giving it headlines because we're losing.

"I'd rather you'd dance over the Super Bowl logo when we're done. We don't need to focus on anything else. JuJu is a heck of a talent and we're very glad to have him. He provides a leadership for that young group at such a young age. So be it. We're in 2020, if you can't dance over a logo? What are we talking about? Man, people can't even go outside right now. We are very appreciative of everybody's talents. Let's get focused on football, let's get back to winning."

By Brian Jones

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is known for being very active on social media, especially on TikTok. And with the help of Team Milk, Smith-Schuster has come up with his TikTok dance challenge for TikTok called hashtag "DoTheJuJu," which debuted last week. recently caught up with the star wide receiver who revealed how he came up with the dance.

"It was really cool because it shows my personality. This is me, this is who I am.

Smith-Schuster has released a series of videos of his dance challenge on TikTok, which is the original one being viewed over 700,000 times. The USC alum has gained a big following on TikTok with over three million followers and loves showing off his dances moves on and off the field. But why does he love being on TikTok?

"I think it gets to show people who we truly are," Smith-Schuster explained. "You know, you talk about football players they're not that really big on social media because our job is so physical and, we don't get to play a lot of games. We're the only team that has 17 games versus 82 games a year. So people criticize you for using social media and stuff like that, but I do it because it's very authentic. It's myself. I get to show people, who I am under the helmet and they just get to see more of me."

Smith-Schuster is one of the athletes of the Team Milk campaign, which can be seen in his latest TikTok videos. Milk has been part of an athlete's nutrition routine for centuries, and Smith-Schuster has been drinking it well before he started playing football. 


"When I was a kid, I've always been a milk drinker," Smith-Schuster said. "It was always part of my daily routine, daily life. Before I could play video games, my mom always say, 'Hey, make sure you drink your milk.' So I would, honestly sit there and drink my milk, whether it was chocolate milk, strawberry milk, any milk it was that was given to me. It was my go-to and with milk, it helps with performance."  

Here's everything you need to know about the Juju TikTok Dance

by Sasha Gohar

TikTok has expanded into the real world. What used to be within TikTok's purview is now done locally. This tells us about the prevalence of the application.

Over the past couple of months, TikTok's fan base has expanded to include some celebrities. Among them are singers, actors, athletes. Now that almost everything is on TikTok, the focus has become even greater.

Footballer JuJu recently showed off his talents on TikTok for all to see. The reactions from different segments are hilarious and something like a roast is being foisted against Juju.

What did he do that attracted the attention of many? In this article, I will tell you about the Juju TikTok dance, which caused a flood of criticism.

He is a soccer player and quite active on TikTok. He plays for a team named Steeler. Juju is 24 years old and plays as a wide receiver on the team. He has many fans who love and protect him at any stage.

On the other hand, he is also active on TikTok where he has 2.6 million followers. Some of his videos have even received 10 million views. Isn't it amazing? You can find him by TikTok ID @JuJu.

There has been a lot of talk about him on social media over the past few days. The reason for this is his offline actions - on the football field. He seems to have mixed his TikTok dancing with real-life sports. This mix bored him.

On Monday (December 21), Juju took his TikTok abilities to the next level. Before the game, he danced on the Cincinnati Bengals logo. His dance was similar to the ones he did on TikTok.

But his dancing, which won him views and likes on TikTok, backfired. The impact of this dance would have gone unnoticed had the Steelers won the game. But that did not happen.

After the match, Juju was criticized for dancing on the other team's logo. He became an overnight sensation on the Internet, where everyone is talking about him. On the other hand, some social media users are toasting it.

Twitter Response:

Twitter is a topic of discussion on the Internet. Here people discussed everything from politics to entertainment, sports and other social media. How could Juju Smith-Shuster get away with what he did?

He didn't. Twitter is strongly opposed to Juju's behavior. Some users do not take prisoners. One user taunted Juju in a tweet saying:

“I'm sorry but Juju deserves all the roast from the Bengals, Steelers and NFL fans. To dance on TikTok on your opponent's logo, you have to at least win, right? »

Actually, this was the case with the TikTok Juju dance on the Bengals logo. Even the fans of his team, Steeler, criticized him. The reason for this was his smug attitude towards the opposing team.

Another Twitter user said, "... Juju, I love you, but for God's sake, this is a fucking stupid TikTok dance."

Juju responded to all criticism by saying that he would not change. In other words, he wanted to make sure that he would continue to do what he was doing.

Closing Thoughts:

Every action we take has consequences. This is more true for famous people. Their every action is followed by millions of fans.

Juju, dancing under the logo of another team, did something wrong. Therefore, he needs to be reprimanded. But that doesn't mean he should stop using TikTok or stop being himself.
