Travis Kelce, Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, is facing scrutiny from Swifties as they delve into his past. Amid the spotlight on Taylor Swift’s relationship with the NFL star, issues have arisen as some Swifties discovered concerning old tweets posted by Kelce.
Resurfacing Kelce’s past tweets has triggered a wave of reactions from both fans and the public, with concerns raised about the perceived misogynistic nature of the content. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end’s tweets included comments about plus-sized women and derogatory remarks about women in general. A few examples include:
“As a man, you have something wrong with you if your going for girls that weigh more then you!!” he wrote.
“Haha when fat people fall, it’s like slow motion entertainment, cuz they never just fall, they always tumble and gradually hit the deck.”
“I gotta get out of here, its too weak!!! im getting attacked by ugly girls,” read one of the tweets.
“Damn the clippers girls gotta be the shi–y girls that don’t make the Lakers girls team, cuz they all was ugly,” he posted.
While some acknowledged that Kelce was quite young when he wrote these tweets, many people are not willing to let it slide.
The NFL player, thrust into the spotlight due to his confirmed romance with pop superstar Taylor Swift in September, is now under intense scrutiny as the public seeks to learn more about him amid engagement rumors. This increased attention highlights the challenges celebrities face, with suggestions that it’s advisable for them to erase any potentially controversial content from their past when they become famous.
Dating one of the most famous women on the planet has its downside, as evidenced by the intense scrutiny and public reactions to Kelce’s old tweets.
