The family of Patrick Mahomes is causing a small controversy on social networks this week.
Brittany Mahomes, the wife of the Kansas City Chiefs’ star quarterback, lambasted the local newspaper for its letter to the editor.
In the column, which was written by a reader, not a staff member, Patrick Mahomes was heavily criticized.
“He’s a great quarterback, of course. But he only cares about his looks, not his team,” the column read.
The Chiefs quarterback’s wife is furious.
“You are all extremely ignorant for this. Kansas City don’t do that to their people, what a joke you are,” she wrote.
NFL fans have taken to social media to weigh in on the controversial news.
“a lot of insecurity?” a fan wrote.
“Letter. TO. The Editor,” a fan added.
“don’t you realize this wasn’t written by the KC Star just sent to them?” a fan added.
“I take the criticism. But then, crude (even baseless) opinions among sports fans are nothing new. An idea: people are invited to write us new letters explaining why the first writer was wrong,” wrote another fan.
“It’s not the media’s job to only say nice things about athletes, true or not,” added a fan.
The Chiefs, 2-1 this season, are set to face the Bucs on Sunday night.
