Pittsburgh Steelers wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster made a name for himself during the 2017 NFL season. His bike riding and social media activity drew attention, but he was also solid on the field with 917 receiving yards on 58 catches during his rookie campaign. It seems the numbers were irrelevant to his mother, who made sure JuJu knew he was never too good to do chores.
Mom putting me in my place! Making me broom around the house 🤦🏾♂️ pic.twitter.com/VVd8EmJ7ku— JuJu Smith-Schuster (@TeamJuJu) February 10, 2018
“You ain’t got no starts when you come to my house,” Smith-Schuster’s mother could be heard saying, while directing him to sweep in a brief Twitter clip.
“Mom, I’m an NFL player. I can’t be brooming and sweeping up this trash,” Smith-Schuster shot back.
It’s unclear if the clip was staged, but either way, her reaction was priceless.
“So what! You ain’t shit,” Smith-Schuster’s mother replied. “Go broom up that goddamn shit over there. Hurry up.”
Fans and Twitter followers who had been on the receiving end of similar exchanges chimed in with responses when Smith-Schuster wrote, “Mom putting me in my place! Making me broom around the house.”

According to ESPN, Smith-Schuster earned $27,000 per week in 2017 during the first season of his contract. He also pocketed a $1.19 million signing bonus. Yet, he still gotta pick up that broom.
