Although she’s used to being criticized, Brittany Mahomes admits there has been an increase in “trolls” on Instagram since she became friends with Taylor Swift.
According to TMZ, Mahomes spoke about her critics on her Instagram Stories there has been “A LOT more rude a— people” going after her on the photo-sharing app. “Recently there has been ALOT more rude a— people on here,” she declared. “Waaaay more [than] normal. I’m not sure where y’all come from, but you should probably go back to where you came from… Please.”
Brittany Mahomes and Taylor Swift have become close since the pop icon started dating Travis Kelce, who plays for the Kansas Chiefs alongside Mahomes’ husband, Patrick. Although she doesn’t hint the criticism had anything to do with her friendship with Swift, it seems to be a pattern.
Recently, Mahomes received some backlash after the Chiefs lost to the Buffalo Bills earlier this month. Fox News reported that she posted a video on her Instagram Stories showing the back judge on the field waiting on Buffalo to call the game. She then wrote “MVP” on the video.
This was the same game where Brittany Mahomes’ husband lost his cool on the field. He slammed his helmet on the ground and had to be held back following a bad play.
Following the game, Patrick Mahomes addressed the field situation. “It’s tough to swallow,” he admitted. “Not only from me, and football in general, to take away greatness like that, for a guy like Travis [Kelce] to make a play like that, you want to see the guys on the field decide the game. They’re human. They make mistakes. But every week, we’re talking about something.”
