Brittany Matthews, the fiancee of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, is sick and tired of all the haters.

Matthews has been endlessly bashed by fans for spraying champagne into the stands at Arrowhead Stadium following the team’s dramatic victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. So she took to Twitter on Monday night to address her critics.

“I just wish I could do what I want without getting attacked every week,” the 26-year-old wrote. 

The Chiefs tied the game the other night, 36-36, after falling behind in the fourth quarter with seconds left. They won the coin toss in overtime and scored a touchdown on the first drive — ending Buffalo’s season and winning their sixth divisional championship in a row.

But Matthews’ sideline bottle popping Sunday night rankled fans who criticized her and her fiance’s brother Jackson Mahomes as sore winners. 

Chiefs’ fans love to hate Brittany Matthews. After Mahomes inked a huge 10-year, $503 million extension with the Chiefs in 2020, he proposed to Matthews at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, with a massive engagement ring. Shortly after, the couple announced they were expecting a baby.

After giving birth, Matthews posted a sexy bikini shot on Instagram, saying: “Haters will say they are fake, but breastfeeding moms will understand,” Matthews captioned the pic.

Does she push too many buttons?

Chiefs Fans Slam Brittany Matthews

In the short clip posted to Twitter and elsewhere online Sunday night, Matthews is seen shaking and uncorking a bottle of bubby from her suite high up at Arrowhead Stadium after the Chiefs scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime. She raises the bottle out above the stands, where joyous fans appear to take little notice. 

In the replies, her many detractors said Matthews’ celebration was inconsiderate to the fans sitting in the splash zone.

“Please don’t be proud of this,” wrote one user. “Dumping liquid on unsuspecting people is not cool. Give the people in your box a shower next time.”

“I would’ve been pissed if you would’ve sprayed me with alcohol and then had to drive an hour home,” said another. “Not everyone has a driver, not everyone drinks, not everyone enjoys being soaked with a beverage, and no one likes their QB and team’s reputation tarnished by ignorance.”

Meanwhile, Kansas City fans — self-styled as the Chiefs Kingdom — let their quarterback’s fiancee know they’re sticking with her. 

“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,” read one post, retweeted by Matthews. 

“People complaining about Brittany spraying champagne into the stands have clearly never won anything before. Just saying,” said another user.

“Accurate,” Matthews agreed.

Brittany Matthews Just Seems to Annoy Fans

Sunday’s champagne drama wasn’t the first time in recent memory that Patrick Mahomes’ sideline entourage drew the ire of football fans online. 

Matthews and her fiance’s little brother Jackson Mahomes have been visible supporters of Kansas City all season long, with their social media antics gaining a higher profile as the Chiefs inch toward their third Super Bowl appearance in as many years. 

“It’s America Vs. Jackson Mahomes and Brittany Matthews. Godspeed, Joe Burrow,” wrote one user, name-dropping the Cincinnati quarterback. 

“For society’s sake, the Bengals need to win next week,” quipped Barstool Sports.

If the hate seems a little out of proportion, it’s important to recall that Brittany Matthews and Jackson Mahomes have been on the front lines of the Chiefs’ online hype squad all season long. 

Matthews took the opportunity late last month to rub it in when Kansas City rallied to clinch the AFC West for the sixth year in a row. 

Meanwhile, Mahomes has raised eyebrows within Chiefs Kingdom with his behavior. In December, a Kansas City bar said the 21-year-old had an “un-earned status and a sense of entitlement” during a feud on social media

Even before the Chiefs beat the Bills in OT to clinch a spot in the AFC Championship, some fans were annoyed with Brittany Matthews and Jackson Mahomes online.

Both Matthews and Mahomes were called out by Instagram influencer and Pittsburgh Steelers fan Amanda Vance last month, when the Chiefs defeated Pittsburgh in week 16. Vance said that Kansas City supporters were acting like sore winners in her DMs. 

“Talk you[r] crap in my DMs KC fans, but you have to deal with this for the next 15 years,” she wrote on her story above a photo of Matthew and Mahomes.
