Raiders’ Antonio Brown, Steelers’ JuJu Smith-Schuster beef on Twitter

The Raiders’ Antonio Brown exchanged blows with former teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster on Twitter on Sunday, starting with Brown blasting a photo claiming that Smith-Schuster was the Pittsburgh Steelers’ most valuable player in 2018.

Brown, who was traded to the Raiders by the Steelers in March, hinted that something might be up when he tweeted “keep your emotions off the internet” this morning. A little over an hour later, he retweeted a photo of Smith-Schuster that was edited to say he was the Steelers’ 2018 MVP, but Brown didn’t agree with the premise of the photo. He also contradicted the thing he said moments before.

“Emotion: boy fumbled the whole post season in the biggest game of year! Everyone went blind to busy making guys famous not enough reality these days!” Brown wrote along with the photo from the Steelers fan.

Before Smith-Schuster got around to responding to Brown, Twitter users criticized the Raiders receiver’s comments. “You’re the kind of dude that will break up with a girl and keep calling her to make sure she doesn’t have another boyfriend,” wrote Twitter user @babyitsmb in response to Brown’s tweet.

But it wasn’t long before Smith-Schuster hopped on social media to respond to his former teammate.

“All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league,” he wrote around midday. I was genuinely happy for him too when he got traded to Oakland w/ a big contract, and now he takes shots at me on social media?”

He immediately followed that up by saying, “Crazy how big that ego got to be to take shots at people who show you love! Smh”

Today’s exchange between the Steelers’ former dynamic duo marks a public deterioration in the relationship between the two. Earlier this month, Smith-Schuster told TMZ Sports that he had no beef with his former teammate. Unfortunately for Raiders and Steelers fans, and really any fan of historic NFL rivalries, the two teams and their number one receivers will not meet this season.
