Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster had an opinion on a Philadelphia staple while talking to reporters at Super Bowl media day. That hot take was a shot at the entire city of Philadelphia.

The remark has now gone viral, leading many Eagles fans to bite back.

Smith-Schuster is a known trash talker. The pass catcher has made headlines with his hatred of certain NFL teams dating back to his days with the Steelers.

He’s been seen dancing on opponent logos, calling out players, and dissing his rivals throughout his professional career. In the 2021 postseason, he called the Browns “nameless, grey faces,” before saying, “The Browns is the Browns,” a shot at the organization’s hapless history.

That’s not stopped in his move to Kansas City.

Earlier this postseason, the wideout bashed the Bengals ahead of an AFC title matchup, calling Cincy a “rah-rah team” in response to the viral “Burrowhead” comments made by players.

JuJu Smith-Schuster is now taking aim at the Eagles with the Super Bowl quickly approaching.

While talking to reporters at Super Bowl media day, the receiver took a shot at one of Philadelphia’s most well-known delicacies.

“Honestly, the best Philly Cheesesteaks are not in Philly!” -JuJu Smith-Schuster

That comment had Philly fans in uproar.

One person wrote, “JuJu must like eating cardboard cheesesteaks,” after hearing the remark.

Another said, “I like JuJu but I might not after this.”

The cheesesteak originated in Philadelphia and has since grown to be synonymous with the area.

Here’s more on that history from

In 1930, Pat Olivieri, and his brother, Harry, were operating a food cart at the corners of 9th Street, Wharton Street, and Passyunk Avenue that dealt primarily in hot dogs and fish cakes. One day in 1933, Pat, bored of eating his own limited menu, implored Harry to visit a nearby butcher and come back with some beef that they could quickly cook up on at their stand for lunch. Harry returned with thinly-sliced ribeye, Pat “frizzled” it up with some onions on the flattop, and crammed it into a bun: voila, version 1.0 of the cheesesteak has arrived.

Cheese was later added to the sandwich, giving us the delicious treat we’ve grown to love. Now, cheesesteaks can be found in every city, coast to coast, but many believe the originators in the City of Brotherly Love still do it best.

JuJu Smith Schuster is apparently not one of those folks, and he let it be known during Super Bowl week. While it’s not game related, the comments have already ruffled feathers within the Philly fanbase.
