Super Bowl LVII is decided, but the Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs continue to battle it out on social media.
Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster started the back-and-forth, sending a tweet mocking James Bradberry’s crucial holding penalty, a call that all but secured the Chiefs’ 38-35 win and was the subject of debate in the days that followed .
In honor of Valentine’s Day, Smith-Schuster sent a card featuring Bradberry’s face and the words, “I’ll hold you tight when it comes down to it.”
Predictably, the Eagles responded, beginning with star wide receiver AJ Brown.

Surprisingly, several players from across the NFL got involved, including former Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who currently plays with the Miami Dolphins, and Dallas Cowboys defensive end Micah Parsons. Both had scathing reactions to Smith-Schuster.
Hill called Smith-Schuster a frontrunner and called him a wrong victim.
Parsons subtweeted Smith-Shuster and questioned his talent.
Taking heavy fire, Smith-Shuster eventually responded to Brown and seemed hurt by the wide receiver’s response.
