‘Tik-Tok boy’ JuJu Smith-Schuster takes shot at James Bradberry, irks A.J. Brown with Valentine’s Day tweet

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster isn’t ready to let fans forget the penalty kick against Eagles CB James Bradberry that helped Kansas City win Super Bowl 57.

Smith-Schuster tweeted a not-so-subtle swipe at Bradberry on Tuesday with a Valentine’s Day card that read, “I’ll hold you when it matters most,” above a picture of the Eagles cornerback.

“Happy Valentine’s Day,” Smith-Schuster said with a heart emoji.

Smith-Schuster ruffled some feathers among Eagles fans last week when he said the best Philly cheesesteaks didn’t come from Philadelphia, and he didn’t earn goodwill by referencing the defensive holding call that made it allowed the Chiefs to shorten the clock to eight seconds and kick a game-winning field goal.

Bradberry took charge of the penalty after the game and was defended by team-mates and coaches who said there was a lot more to the narrow defeat than a play.

Eagles WR AJ Brown hit back at Smith-Schuster on Twitter, calling the former Steelers receiver a “tik-tok boy.”

“You were on your way out of the league before Mahomes reignited your career,” Brown tweeted, calling Smith-Schuster’s tweet “lame.”

Smith-Schuster responded in kind, sending another short but hard-hitting tweet to Philly’s Pro Bowl receiver.

From there, however, the barbs only escalated when some of the NFL’s biggest names got involved. Tyreek Hill sparked the hysteria, seemingly throwing shade at Smith-Schuster in a response.

That seemed to open the floodgates. Mahomes took to Twitter and issued a vague statement that could have been aimed at anyone from Hill, Smith-Schuster or Brown. We let you decide:

Brown hit back with a now-deleted tweet, telling Mahomes (and one of his followers), “He called you and ratted me out. Sounds about right. Yes, you get it,” followed by a crying laugh emoji. Sharp.

Luckily for Bradberry and company, his teammates had his back. CJ Gardner-Johnson dealt Smith-Schuster a series of punches:

And even Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons offered support to his division rival. Who could have imagined that?

The Chiefs and Eagles will meet in Kansas City next season. Both Smith-Schuster and Bradberry are upcoming free agents, although Smith-Schuster has made it clear he wants to return to the Chiefs.

With or without Bradberry, we may have a budding off-conference rivalry.
