Since Harrison Butker sent the woke outrage mob into a full-blown meltdown, most everyone in the world has given their two cents on it.

Not much has been heard from those closest to the three-time Super Bowl champion, especially his teammates and coaches.

But Patrick Mahomes broke his silence on the woke mob’s assault on Harrison Butker with a statement that blindsided everyone.

Mahomes sets the record straight

With less than a couple of weeks remaining before the NFL’s mandatory minicamps open, teams are in the process of hosting the first of their OTA (optional team activity) practices in preparation for the season.

This includes the Kansas City Chiefs, who opened up their OTA slate last week for the first time, giving the self-proclaimed “journalists” in the sports media a chance to pepper the team’s players and coaches about the woke outrage mob’s assault on kicker Harrison Butker.

True to form, the “journalists” in attendance didn’t miss the opportunity.

But while they’d hoped to get plenty of soundbites and clips of the team condemning Butker, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid led the charge in coming to his defense.

When asked about his longtime teammate’s “controversial” statement, Mahomes didn’t miss a beat.

“I’ve known [Harrison] for seven years, and I judge him by the character that he shows every single day,” Mahomes said. “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.”

The three-time Super Bowl MVP went on to explain that while he and Butker don’t necessarily agree on everything, he knows that he is a “great person.”

“There’s certain things 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 lead people in the right direction, and that might not be the same values as I have, but at the same time, I’m going to judge him by the character he shows every single day and that’s a great person,” Mahomes continued.

“At the end of the day, we’re going to come together as a team, and I think that will help, as well as eliminating those distractions outside the building,” he added.

Reid sets the media straight

As for Reid, when he was asked whether he had spoken to Butker about the whole ordeal, the Chiefs head coach told the media that he didn’t see why it would be necessary in any way since everyone has their own opinions.

“I didn’t talk to him about this – didn’t think we needed to,” Reid said with a shrug. “We’re a microcosm of life here, everybody is from different areas, different religions, different races, and so 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.”

“It’s a great thing about America, man,” he added. “And we’re just, like I said, a microcosm of that and my wish is that everybody could kind of follow that.”

Reid even went so far as to set a reporter straight when he attempted to claim Butker had “spoken ill of women,” which would affect females who work for the Chiefs.

“Yeah, that hasn’t happened,” Reid shot back. “I don’t think he was speaking ill to women. 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,” he added.

Needless to say, Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid’s comments on Harrison Butker didn’t exactly go the way that the woke outrage mob and their media allies had hoped.

But that certainly won’t deter them from continuing their never-ending tantrum.
