The following week before their game against the Bengals, Smith-Schuster made a decision to keep his pregame ritual going on Monday Night Football.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver told reporters on Monday that he will no longer dance on opponents' logos before games, as he had done in pregame warmups before every away game this season.

Smith-Schuster has engaged in the ritual for some time now, but recently had a change of heart. I was dancing when we lost our three games.

Smith-Schuster said he didn't mean to disrespect other teams with his dancing.

The next game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Smith-Schuster performed another TikTok on the team logo prior to the game which prompted a huge hit on Smith-Schuster from Bengals safety Vonn Bell. Bell put extra heat in the tackle as it caused Schuster to fumble the ball. The conversation reached a fever pitch after Pittsburgh's loss to the Bengals on Monday night, a game in which Smith-Schuster managed just three catches 15 yards and lost a crucial fumble.

Following the game, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he would talk to Smith-Schuster about his dancing.

After the "female" comment, Kinlaw, whose motivations for messaging Smith-Schuster in the first place remain unclear, wrote on his own Instagram story, "I promise you wouldn't come to Levi stadium in that corvette".

When the Steelers go to Cleveland in Week 17, don't expect Smith-Schuster to dance on the Browns' logo.
