CLEVELAND — One family is skipping the star for the top of their Christmas tree this year.

Instead, they have created their own tree topper depicting the infamous moment Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns struck Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head with a helmet.

The makeshift topper features several action figures recreating the controversial scene. The Garrett figurine features a rotating arm swinging a helmet at another character dressed as Rudolph.

Steve Schneider, who lives in Washington state, tweeted video of his creation.

“May I present the Schneider family Christmas tree topper!” he wrote on Twitter.

Schneider offered a follow-up tweet, saying the city of Cleveland “contacted us about our creation, but it seems like no one wants to believe we are Hawks fans.”

Garrett has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for the incident.

The Browns are currently 5-7 this season following Sunday’s loss to the Steelers.
