After Travis Kelce angrily bumped Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on the sidelines, some felt the reaction from the tight end was too strong and proved he is a ‘red flag’ to girlfriend Taylor Swift.
Swift is at the Super Bowl and has been dating Kelce publicly since September.
Kelce was taken out of the game for a play which resulted in a fumble by the team’s running Isiah Pacheco, infuriating him.
Kelce charging Reid surprised the 65-year-old coach, although he did not appear angry by his tight end’s actions.
Swift’s boyfriend only had one catch for one yard in the first half of the game.

‘And just like that I’m suddenly less excited about Travis Kelce,’ one user on X said. ‘You don’t get to ape up someone all aggressive like just because you’re frustrated. Taylor, my darling, my dove, my lamb, this is a big red flag.’
‘Travis Kelce is a red flag. That aggression isn’t what Taylor needs,’ another fan said on social media.
‘Travis Kelce gotta do better man,’ another person said.
‘Travis Kelce just ran up on one of the greatest coaches in NFL history and shoved him during the Super Bowl. I think that’s a story that Jim [Nantz] and Tony [Romo] have to address. This is wild,’ conservative commentator Jason Whitlock said.
Romo and Nantz did react to the footage during the broadcast.
Reid did not participate in the usual halftime interviews, where he could have been asked about the interaction.
Kelce did have two catches on the first three Chiefs’ possessions of the second half.
Nickelodeon’s Super Bowl broadcast labeled Kelce not by his own name, but as ‘Taylor Swift’s boyfriend’ during the Super Bowl.
Kelce’s position, jersey number and the phrase ‘good at football’ were present identifying him without saying his name.
Kelce has gained mainstream popularity by being the boyfriend of the 14-time Grammy winner.
Swift dating Kelce has brought younger female fans into the game, with Nickelodeon specializing in children’s television.
The Chiefs have a 9-3 record with Swift in attendance, with the pop star watching all three Kansas City playoff wins live.
Kelce was considered one of the best tight ends in the NFL before dating Swift, and has been known better by most as the boyfriend to the ‘Anti-Hero’ singer.
