Patriots fans and Steelers players don’t seem the most natural of friends.

The lopsided rivalry between the two AFC powers has certainly built up some animosity among those wearing and supporting the black and gold.

But that didn’t stop Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster from granting a photo with an eager Patriots fan sporting a Tom Brady jersey, one that he shared on Twitter. What a nice gesture.


Oh wait. What’s going on there with Smith-Schuster’s right hand? That is most definitely not a nice gesture.

Smith-Schuster appears to be speaking for the vast majority of football fans this Super Bowl week sick of watching the Patriots win. At the expense of this fan’s excited encounter with an NFL player.

Keep it classy, JuJu.
