Pittsburgh Steeler players are facing backlash after a tasteless on-field celebration.
During Sunday's game, linebacker Alex Highsmith sacked Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson—absolutely a moment to celebrate. However, to say the way it was done was in poor taste in an understatement.
A teammate proceeded to administer fake chest compressions to Highsmith who remained on the ground after the tackle, not even a week after Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest during a Monday Night Footballgame and received on-field CPR to save his life.
Though many claim the team has used the same actions for celebrations all season, most are chiming in on Twitter it is still "insensitive" and "classless."
While the Steelers won the game, people definitely wouldn't call it a public relations victory.
In much, much better news, Damar Hamlin was released from ICU in Cincinnati and transferred to a hospital near his home in Buffalo.
