2023 saw the beginning of one of the most unexpected rivalries in NFL history. The Chiefs met the Bengals in the AFC Championship Game. It was a clash of two of the best quarterbacks in the conference, Mahomes and Joe Burrow. But people were talking about the Mayor of Cincinnati and Brittany before the game.
Mayor Aftab Pureval attracted negative headlines with some undignified online comments about the Chiefs. But he instantly won fans when Brittany confronted him on social media as she labeled him ‘WEAK.’ It was one of the most cringeworthy exchanges ever but fans couldn’t take their eyes off it (via Sports Illustrated).
There’s no doubt that Jackson is the most annoying member of the Mahomes family. He infamously went head-to-head with a Kansas City bar and slated them online. He criticized their service and acted in an entitled manner. They refused to accept this and wrote a lengthy response on social media that went viral.
Part of the statement read as follow: “We are sorry that you have the reach that you do, or at least that you think you do, and that instead of using it for something positive you decided to use it to try and crush a small business. We survived a global pandemic, we’ll survive your ego (via Golf Digest).”
In February 2022, Patrick and Brittany attended a Texas Tech basketball game. This is Mahomes’ alma mater and he has a special place in his heart for the institution. However, Brittany stole the headlines as she continuously spoke to her then-fiancee. A long-suffering expression flourished on his face as he appeared to lose patience.
Finally, he replied to her as he fought to maintain his composure. Brittany turned away open-mouthed because his words cut her deep. Meanwhile, social media users tore into her because they thought she was weird. Later, Patrick came out in defense of his wife but it was another dark day for the infamous Mahomes family (via FirstSportz).
One of the most distasteful moments of Jackson’s TikTok career happened in October 2021. The Chiefs traveled to Washington for a clash with the Commanders. After the game, Jackson entered the field and typically danced in a TikTok video. But he received an online mauling because he danced on a memorial dedicated to late Washington star Sean Taylor.
Most fans thought that this was very disrespectful and shredded him on social media. But Mahomes defended himself by saying that stewards moved him to the space. Unfortunately, he didn’t consider that they didn’t tell him to dance at the memorial. In the end, Jackson apologized to Taylor’s family for the misunderstanding (via Vigour Times).
After Brittany mistakenly doused the Kansas City fans in champagne, she tried to make amends. However, her haters take every opportunity to target her online. Regardless of what she did, they’d find a way to target her. Brittany decided to sell t-shirts and donate the proceeds to anti-bullying campaigns.
She also promised to match the donations with her money. This was a noble idea but it came off as slightly narcissistic. That’s because all of the apparel had huge ‘Team Brittany’ logos emblazoned on the front. It slightly damaged her credibility and made people roll their eyes again (via TMZ).
There are few things more annoying on this planet than gender reveals. This is where couples reveal if their future spawn will be a boy or a girl. The best events record something going badly wrong. Preferably there’s an explosion or an animal goes crazy. However, most of them are cringeworthy like this pastel-colored edition.
Brittany saw a golden opportunity to monetize their baby before it was even born. The Mahomes family gathered for an annoying video that saw them guess if it was a boy or a girl. In the end, they revealed the answer and Patrick cried with happiness. We’re not sure if crocodile tears count but they got lots of traffic (via Good Morning America).
In 2022, Jackson demonstrated his lack of self-awareness when he went after the media. He tweeted: “I hate media/news it’s destroying my life.” This was ludicrous because he created his relationship with the public. If he didn’t act like a moron in bars or dance on memorials things might be different.
Many of his haters agreed because he didn’t make sense. Nobody forced Mahomes to create a public persona or to hang onto his brother’s coattails. He tried to exploit the best NFL player on the planet and received more exposure than he bargained for. This is something that the Mahomes family doesn’t always appreciate (via New York Post).
Jackson Mahomes got more than he bargained for when he decided to become a TikTok star. He didn’t realize that people would have a rooted interest in tarnishing his image. His celebrity reached a stage where the paparazzi follow everything he does. In 2022, he discovered this to his cost when he attended a festival.
A video captured Jackson sniffing a white substance. There’s no guarantee that it was cocaine but everybody immediately jumped to conclusions. Perhaps he wants to try a new laundry detergent and somebody recommended one. We doubt it but it was yet another awkward moment for the Mahomes family (via Side Action).
A major reason why NFL fans never warmed to Brittany is that she doesn’t know when to stay quiet. There’s nothing wrong with having an opinion but she infuriates people with her incessant tweeting. She overuses emojis and writes in block capitals to express her emotions. There’s a big difference between her and Joe Burrow’s girlfriend, Oliva Holzmacher.
“The REFs DO NOT want us to win” is a classic Brittany tweet. The replies are a minefield because they inevitably turn into a war between her fans and her haters. There’s no doubt that the Mahomes family rubs a lot of people up the wrong way. They’re also lucky that Patrick is so successful (via Side Action).
Many people don’t watch the NFL every week but they’ll tune in for the Super Bowl. These poor folks received the full Jackson experience when he gatecrashed Patrick’s post-game interview. Jackson danced like a moron in front of the world as his brother celebrated his achievement. It was a cringeworthy moment because there was no need for him to do it.
NFL fans shook their heads in disgust because they couldn’t believe his narcissism. This was the moment that Patrick sealed his status as an all-time great. He won his second ring and Super Bowl MVP award after a great display. But Jackson wanted to get TikTok views so he stole his older sibling’s thunder (via Head Topics).
Jackson enraged the Ravens fanbase after he showered them with water in 2021. This came after Baltimore defeated Kansas City and some fans mocked the Mahomes family. However, this comes with the territory and there was no need for Jackson’s reaction. It also left Patrick in a delicate position as he condemned Jackson’s action but defended his rage (via US magazine).
“Obviously, it’s something we don’t want to necessarily do,” Patrick told the media. “There were things that were said to him and Brittany that you don’t see in the clip. He’s been good at trying not to respond to that stuff. He takes a lot and he’s usually pretty good at it and he’ll learn from it and try to stay away from those people as best he can.”
In 2023, Jackson allegedly had confrontations with two restaurant staff members in Kansas City. He allegedly put his hands on one male server and shoved him. The restaurant called the police and pressed charges against the TikTok star. They believed that they had a good case because they knew Jackson’s brother had incredible resources to mount a legal challenge.
Reportedly, Jackson shoved the 19-year-old man multiple times after he drank too much. It should be noted that Jackson’s representatives deny these allegations and believe that he didn’t do anything wrong. However, it’s not the first time that the younger Mahomes brother had problems in a K.C. bar (via MSN).
Podcast King Joe Rogan attracted Brittany’s ire in 2023 after he made mocking comments about her relationship. Rogan went after the Mahomes family in a conversation with three fellow comedians. During the conversation, he suggested that Patrick and Brittany will divorce shortly (via Fox News).
Brittany reacted to this with a series of tweets. She wrote: “Something about grown men talking s*** about someone’s wife is real weird. Actually grown a** men hating on women, in general, is pathetic.” However, many Rogan fanboys jumped on the bandwagon so perhaps she should have maintained a dignified silence.
This is the second incident from Jackson’s recent restaurant scandal. After he reportedly drank too much, he became rowdy. Then he allegedly kissed the 40-year-old manager without her consent and physically dominated her. The CCTV footage shows Mahomes embracing her before leaving the stunned owner wiping her face (via USA Today).
“He forcibly kissed me out of nowhere,” the owner told the KC Star, “and I’m telling him, pushing him off saying ‘what are you doing?’ and then he proceeded to do it two more times where the last time I was pushing him off and I can see on the cameras that somebody was outside the office door and I was yelling for them to come help because he’s big and massive.”
