Online Opinions Pour In
The mixed response to Swift’s attendance sparked a slew of opinions online. Some argued that men dislike seeing a successful woman, while others pointed out Swift’s contribution to the American economy. Another user suggested that the negative reaction was not personal and that anyone resembling a Chiefs fan would have received similar treatment at the Patriots’ stadium.
Swift’s Playful Reaction and Relationship Status
The Patriots organization shared a video of Swift reacting to the crowd’s noise. In the video, she can be seen sticking out her tongue, flashing a peace sign, and blowing a kiss. Swift’s presence at Chiefs games has been a topic of interest since September, when she attended a game to support her boyfriend, tight end Travis Kelce. In a recent interview, Swift confirmed that they were already dating at the time and clarified that the game was not their first date.
Swift’s Awareness of the Attention
Swift is well aware of the attention she garners at the games. She expressed surprise at how photographers know which suite she is in and how often she appears on the broadcast. Despite this, Swift maintains that her presence is solely to support Kelce and not to intentionally draw attention.
A Passionate Display at the Game
During the game, Swift’s emotions ran high when her boyfriend took a hit in the end zone. She was captured on camera appearing to yell an expletive. Swift attended the game with her father, a longtime Philadelphia Eagles fan who donned Chiefs gear. Brittany Mahomes, wife of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, also joined them. Pictures showed the trio engaged in conversation as the game kicked off.
The Chiefs emerged victorious with a 27-17 win over the Patriots, leaving fans with a mix of memories from both the game and their reactions to Swift’s presence.
