The ongoing chatter linking Taylor Swift to the performance struggles of the Kansas City Chiefs shows no signs of abating.
Elle Duncan unequivocally dismissed any notion that Taylor Swift’s relationship with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce could be considered a “distraction” contributing to the team’s recent downturn. On her own show, Duncan passionately rejected the idea that Swift could be blamed for Kelce’s performance or the team’s challenges.
“Do not blame Taylor Swift for being a distraction, for Travis Kelce playing well, for the Chiefs not playing good. No, it is not her fault,” Duncan asserted. “I am so tired of us doing this, and we do this to women. It’s Jessica Simpson’s fault Tony Romo struggled. Remember Kim Kardashian and Miles Austin for a hot second? It’s her fault. It’s always the woman’s fault for distracting.”
The Chiefs have encountered a challenging stretch, losing four of their last six games and holding a 9-6 record for the season with two games remaining. This is the most losses in a single season since 2017, the year before Patrick Mahomes assumed the role of the team’s starting quarterback.
It is essential to note, however, that Swift and Kelce have been in a relationship throughout the season, including the period when the team enjoyed a 7-2 start.
Duncan emphasized that the Chiefs’ recent struggles stem from issues within the team, such as a lack of discipline, execution, and overall talent on offense. These challenges have nothing to do with Swift’s presence.
Despite the facts, the narrative persists that Swift is being scapegoated for the Chiefs’ recent lackluster performance. As soon as the Chiefs began experiencing setbacks, there was a predictable inclination to attribute blame to Swift, prompting discussions about her potential role as a distraction or responsible party for the team’s performance.
