Wrestling memes, calls for apology: Internet responds to Travis Kelce shouting at Andy Reid



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.

‘This is who you are yelling at’

Another X user posted, “andy reid (subtweeting about travis kelce): when you yell at me this is who you’re yelling at” above a photo of a small, brown bunny.

‘He should apologize publicly’

Former talk show host and political commentator Geraldo Rivera wasn’t afraid to voice his opinion on the encounter on X.

“Huge fan of Travis Kelce, one of the greatest tight ends ever. His gritty play and epic love story made history. Didn’t like him screaming at coach Andy Reid, though,” Rivera posted. “It was disrespectful, even hysterical. Good people have bad moments. Still, he should apologize publicly.”

The locker room meet up

“Andy Reid to Travis Kelce when they get into the locker room,” one X use posted, showing a video of a man sucker punching another man on a street and running off.

‘I like singing Taylor Swift songs’

“Hey, old man, just because I like singing Taylor Swift songs at the top of my lungs doesn’t mean you can take me out of the game,” one user jokingly claims Kelce told his coach.
