Travis Kelce’s actions during the Super Bowl have drawn criticism from NFL fans. In the first half of the game, Kelce appeared to shove his 65-year-old coach, Andy Reid, after a disagreement over a play. Despite their strong relationship from playing together for several years, the incident was deemed “unacceptable” by many fans. Kelce’s behavior led to strong reactions from fans, with some calling him a “clown,” “embarrassing,” “out of order,” and a “thug.”
Some fans even referenced Kelce’s relationship with popstar Taylor Swift, suggesting that Swift wouldn’t tolerate such behavior and questioning how she would react to it. Given Kelce’s high-profile relationship with Swift, who was in the stands during the Super Bowl, the cameras focused on her sparingly, which disappointed fans who were eager to see the pop icon. Some expressed their frustration, stating that they would turn off the broadcast if Swift wasn’t shown soon. The incident involving Kelce and the subsequent focus on his relationship with Swift has drawn increased attention to his actions and behavior.
The fans’ reactions reflect the heightened scrutiny on Kelce due to his association with one of the world’s biggest popstars.
