Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Devin Bush’s TikTok comments caught the attention of fans and wide receiver Chase Claypool.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are perhaps the most interesting team in the NFL. They went from undefeated through their first 11 games of last season, to being eliminated in the Wild Card Round by the rival Cleveland Browns. With the rest of the division on the rise, many are wondering if the Steelers will even make it out of the bottom of the standings. It certainly does not help when individuals are trying to interpret tweets from a player on the team.
On Thursday, Steelers stud linebacker Devin Bush sent out a tweet saying that any “grown man” that has the TikTok application on their phone needs to stay away from him. Individuals then pointed out that his teammates JuJu Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool both are active on the app.
In fact, that caught Claypool’s attention, who replied to Bush’s tweet.
Steelers: Was Devin Bush calling out JuJu Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool for using TikTok?
Of course, the Steelers and their use of TikTok last season have caught the attention of the league and their opponents.
Prior to games, Smith-Schuster danced on the midfield logo of Pittsburgh’s opponents and posted it to TikTok. He did so against both the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals during Weeks 14 and 15, and they were angered by the receiver’s actions. That gave both teams the motivation to beat the Steelers in those contests.
Additionally, the Browns had fun at Smith-Schuster’s expense, as they did the “Corvette Corvette” TikTok dance on the sidelines during their playoff victory and played the song in the locker room after the game.
Claypool caught some attention on TikTok following Pittsburgh’s playoff loss, saying during a TikTok live chat that the Browns were “going to get clapped” by the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round. That was far from the case, as Cleveland narrowly lost to Kansas City, 22-17.
It is highly unlikely that Bush’s tweet was directed towards his teammates. But that did not stop the story from gaining steam, considering how the team’s use of the application was in the spotlight throughout last season.
