The Kansas City Chiefs got the last laugh against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday with a 23-20 win in the AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium, and now members of Chiefs Kingdom are beginning to troll their opponent.
Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, took a direct shot at Bengals cornerback Eli Apple following the win, as did several Chiefs players, including Juan Thornhill.Apple has a reputation for being one of the biggest trash-talkers in the NFL.
Brittany Mahomes’ tweet references a post from the veteran corner from after Cincinnati’s AFC Divisional Round win over the Buffalo Bills in which he quote-tweeted a Stefon Diggs tweet with “Cancun on 3.”
Apple also has beef with the Chiefs dating back to last year’s AFC Championship Game, which the Bengals won by a field goal in overtime.
The 27-year-old went on a Twitter tirade, first targeting former Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, calling him a “baby.” He also told Hill and Mecole Hardman he would hook them up with Super Bowl tickets.
Considering the Chiefs took down the Bengals on Sunday, Apple probably won’t have much to say on Twitter. However, his beef with Kansas City will undoubtedly continue throughout his career.
