Brittany Matthews Mahomes has not been shy about defending her husband, Patrick Mahomes, the star quarterback for recent Super Bowl winners the Kansas City Chiefs.
She is arguably Mahomes’ most vocal supporter and has been by his side since he was tearing up the field at high school and then at Texas Tech University.
She has come in for some frightful trolling over the years, as some take exception to the way she celebrates the NFL star’s every success. But Brittany, 27, has also not held back when she feels that someone needs to be put in their place on social media.
After a defeat, a Kansas City Star reporter said that while Mahomes is a “good quarterback” he is not a team player and that “Mahomes puts the ‘i’ in team and only focuses on himself.”

In a scathing opinion piece, the writer also said: “He doesn’t care if his team wins or loses. All he cares about is how he looks.”
Brittany was quick to refute this, jumping to her husband’s defense. She tweeted: “Y’all are extremely ignorant for this. Kansas City doesn’t do this to its people, what a joke you guys are.”
