Patrick Mahomes’ fiancée Brittany Matthews found herself at the center of controversy this week when her old racial tweets resurfaced on social media.
The tweets in question are several years old, but found their way back into the conversation in light of the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers squaring off in the Super Bowl this past Sunday.
The tweets largely speak for themselves.
Naturally, people had some reactions.

This has been a rough week for the Chiefs and the organization’s extended family.
First you had head coach Andy Reid’s son driving impaired and leaving a five-year-old child with life threatening injuries.
The Bucks owner’s daughter decided to bring 2021 in with a bang by stripping all her clothes off. https://t.co/UgzhEEna4o

Then you had Mahomes’ younger brother irritating just about everyone in America with his antics – but learning a valuable lesson in the process.
In addition to that, there was Mahomes’ mom showing everyone what not to do when your son loses the Super Bowl.
Now we know what motivates Gronk to play so hard. https://t.co/xFnKnjoXQ4

Let’s also not forget Tyrann Mathieu suggesting that Tom Brady called him a slur, while remaining completely oblivious to the fact that their interaction was actually caught on tape.
And now you have this whole brouhaha.
Needless to say, Kansas City has seen finer days.
