Earlier this month, Alejandro Villanueva appeared to take a shot at Smith-Schuster regarding his TikTok dances, when he had his first media session after signing with the Ravens.
“When you have a balanced offense, or when you run the ball, it’s obviously better for the offensive line," Villanueva said. "I’m assuming it’s not as fun for the wide receivers, because they’re not getting all the catches. They’re making the TikToks, and they’re having fun on their social media.”
Smith-Schuster added some context to Villanueva's controversial statement in an interview with the New York Post.
“For [Villanueva’s] stuff, I think what he was saying more so was that [he’d] prefer to be in a balanced offense than a more heavy passing offense. That’s honestly true, we couldn’t run the ball as much,” Smith-Schuster said.
When it came to the TikTok dancing part, Smith-Schuster said that Villanueva was even a part of some.
“As far as the TikTok dances, [Villanueva] was a part of them," Smith-Schuster said. "He was in my TikToks too, he was dancing, he was in Chase [Claypool]’s, too. As far as having fun, he had his fair share, too.”
Some believe Villanueva was just joking with his TikTok statement, while others feel it was a shot at Smith-Schuster. It doesn't seem like Schuster took offense to Villanueva's comments, however, and it's a fact that Villanueva was a part of some of his TikTok dances and celebrations, as the cover photo of this article shows.
