Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will continue to celebrate after big plays

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell took to Twitter Tuesday to tell fans why he will continue to celebrate after big plays, regardless of what others might think.

When a professional athlete decides to be an active user of social media, especially Twitter, they have an understanding that their space on social media will often times be used as a platform for fans to tell them what they think, and what the athlete might not want to hear.

Pittsburgh Steelers' RB Le'Veon Bell had obviously heard enough from fans suggesting he stop celebrating after big plays to avoid possibly getting an excessive celebration penalty, or as was the case Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a taunting penalty.

Bell took to Twitter to answer fans that might have suggested he stop, and to let people understand why he celebrates the way he does.

It is an honest look into the mind of a professional athlete that is put on a stage with 64,000 or more fans screaming every time he makes a play for their favorite team.

Agree or disagree, from what Bell said on Twitter, No. 26 for the Steelers will be celebrating every first down, every touchdown and every big play he makes regardless of what fans or naysayers might think.
