Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the biggest star in the National Football League.

As the number one star and team leader, it fell to Mahomes to address the woke mob trying to cancel Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker.

And Patrick Mahomes just said one thing about Harrison Butker that no one saw coming.

The woke mob comes for Butker

Online rage addicts, social justice warriors, and woke members of the media tried to force the Chiefs to cancel Butker.

Butker’s crime?

Expressing his traditional Catholic views at the commencement ceremony for the Catholic College.

Butker told the graduates at Benedictine College that women shouldn’t fall for society’s lies about motherhood being less rewarding than a corporate career.

More than 200,000 keyboard warriors signed an online petition demanding the Chiefs cut Butker.

The NFL deals with players raping women, beating their wives, and even hiring a hitman to kill their pregnant girlfriend.

Members of the media also never batted an eye when Chiefs receiver Rahee Rice got arrested twice – once for a car accident where he and another driver were allegedly drag racing and a second time for allegedly punching a photographer in the face.

To the left-wing media mob, defending motherhood was the greatest crime a football player could commit.

Mahomes defends Butker

Reporters demanded Mahomes denounce Butker when Mahomes met reporters ahead of the Chiefs OTAs.

If Mahomes spoke out against Butker, the Chiefs would have little choice but to cut the kicker.

But Mahomes defended his teammate.

“I know Harrison,” Mahomes stated.

Mahomes called Butker a man of excellent character and said he didn’t need to agree with every single opinion Butker held to consider him a good teammate. 

“I’ve known him for seven years. And I judge him by the character that he shows every single day, and that’s a good person. That’s someone who cares about the people around him, cares about his family, and wants to make a good impact in society. When you’re in the locker room, there’s a lot of people from a lot of different areas of life, and they have a lot of different views on everything. And we’re not always gonna agree,” Mahomes stated.

Coach Andy Reid also slams the press

Chiefs Coach Andy Reid also defended his kicker, calling Butker a “great person” who is just trying to do good in the world.

“And there’s certain things that he said that I don’t necessarily agree with. But I understand the person that he is, and he’s trying to do whatever he can to try to lead people in the right direction. And that might not be the same values as I have, but at the same time, I’m gonna judge him by the values that he shows every day, and that’s a great person. […] I know what kind of person he is, and I’m gonna make sure I look at that first,” Reid began.

Reid said he didn’t consider Butker’s comments a big deal and that the Chiefs are a team that embraces diversity of thought.

“I talk to Harrison all the time,” Reid added. “I didn’t talk to him about this. I didn’t think I needed to. We’re a microcosm of life here. We’re from different areas, different religions, different races. We all get along. We all respect each other’s opinions. And not necessarily do we go by those, but we respect everybody to have a voice. That’s a great thing about America, man. We’re just a microcosm of that, and I wish– my wish is that everybody could kinda follow that.”

“I don’t think he was speaking ill to women,” Reid continued.

Reid even snarked that he lets reporters in the building even though they have all sorts of opinions on the game of football that he finds ridiculous. 

“But he has his opinions, and we all respect that. I let you guys in this room, and you have a lot of opinions that I don’t like,” Reid concluded.

Now that the star quarterback and coach dismissed the woke mob’s attacks on Butker, that should put this story to rest.
