Patrick Mahomes is one of the more likable superstars in all of sports.
He never does anything controversial and is simply fun to watch.
But there is one thing hurting his reputation.
That would be the actions of his fiancee, Brittany Matthews, and his brother, Jackson.
Jackson Mahomes famously did a TikTok dance on Sean Taylor‘s number in Washington and draws hate on social media at just about every turn.
Matthews is usually with him on the sidelines at games drawing attention as well.
Her latest action has once again resulted in backlash.

She posted a video of herself spraying Kansas City Chiefs fans with champagne after the team’s thrilling win Sunday.
To some, this was not a big deal.
But others were quick to reply with disdain and disgust.
You probably should delete this video, there’s nothing cool about spraying champagne on people who don’t even know it’s coming and it’s cold..As a part owner of a major sports team, you should probably behave as such, not a good look. Especially kids getting sprayed with alcohol

This is just the latest action that has NFL fans up in arms about Matthews.
Continuing To Draw Social Media Ire
The main reaction was people citing the fact it was freezing and that there were kids in the crowd.
Nice. Spray Champs on the pheasants below. Spray on your own box. Iam sure they would be so happy with you doing that. Seriously? How would that go over 🤔

Please don't be proud of this. Dumping liquid on unsuspecting people is not cool. Give the people in your box a shower next time

Sooo what if there were kids in that area or someone who didn’t drink alcohol? Also the fact it was colder temperatures there…this is honestly inconsiderate af

Someone like Matthews is going to receive negative comments on just about anything she posts on social media.
That is the reputation she has gained, whether that is fair or not.
It is no secret that there is plenty of alcohol flowing in the stands during any NFL game.
The problem here, according to the backlash, is spraying people with it for no good reason.
Ever sit for hours in freezing temps? Last thing you want is to be wet. This is trash while she stays dry in her heated box

Plenty of the backlash is coming from people outside of Kansas City, which is to be expected with how much success the team is having.
This is just the nature of social media and Matthews may even welcome the hate at this point.
Imagine your team winning in one of the best games in NFL history… Then complaining about how devoted, excited and proud Brittany is of her man and this team. Y’all are weird … https://t.co/603wvle9As

Is Matthews in the wrong here?
That depends who you ask.
