Travis was ticked.
And one way or another, the internet has something to say about it.
Kansas Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was clearly frustrated in the first half of Super Bowl 58 Sunday night, when he was caught on camera yelling at his coach Andy Reid and then shoving him on the sideline.
After the game, Reid shook it off and said it wasn’t “a selfish thing” on Kelce’s part.
“He caught me off balance, I wasn’t watching. Cheap shot, but that’s alright” Reid joked to reporters, adding that Kelce was asking to be put in the game.
During another interview after the game, Kelce spoke about the interaction briefly saying, “I’mma keep it between us unless my mic’d up tells the world, but I was just telling him how much I love him.”
Some viewers joked about the move while others called for Kelce to apologize for his actions. Here is how social media is reacting to the exchange.
