Backlash against Harrison Butker grows: NFL wades in to say it does NOT support his controversial comments, leaders say he does not represent Kansas City and petition to cut him from Chiefs surges past



The backlash against Chiefs star Harrison Butker continues to grow with the NFL issuing a statement distancing the organization from his commencement speech in which he told women they should aspire to be homemakers.

That press release came as the petition to have him removed from the Super Bowl champion’s roster closes in on 100,000 signatures. It was set up just a day after his address at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas.

Despite the outrage, the field goal kicker’s remarks were met with some applause by the crowd.

Butker, 28, who’s made his conservative Catholic beliefs well known, also assailed Pride month, a particularly important time for the LGBTQ+ rights movement, and President Joe Biden’s stance on abortion as well as Covid-19 policies.

‘Bad policies and poor leadership have negatively impacted major life issues. Things like abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia, as well as a growing support for degenerate cultural values and media all stem from pervasiveness of disorder,’ Butker ranted.

The Georgia-native even quoted self-made billionaire Taylor Swift, although he only referred to her as his ‘teammate’s girlfriend,’ thanks to her relationship with tight end Travis Kelce.

As my teammate’s girlfriend says, “familiarity breeds contempt,”‘ he told the audience, referring to Swift’s song Bejeweled from her 2022 album Midnights
