Swift faced the fans as she attended her boyfriend Travis Kelce’s latest AFC Championship Game against the Ravens on Sunday (28 January) to see who would make it to the Super Bowl final.
In footage filmed in the hallways of M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, the ‘Shake It Off’ singer was spotted walking alongside Brittany Mahomes, wife of fellow Chiefs player Patrick Mahomes.
Dressed in Kansas City Chiefs-themed jewelry to show her support for Kelce, Swift waved at the few fans who showed their support and called out their love for her as she passed.
Not everyone was so welcoming though, and in footage shared online one fan could be heard criticizing Swift as they called out to her that she had ‘ruined the NFL’.
Others accused Swift – who has already received plenty of backlash – of ‘ruining football’, while one even reportedly dropped the f-bomb as they told Swift: “F**k you.”
Swift has made regular appearances at Chiefs games in recent months as she’s attempted to show her support for Kelce, but though her presence at the game really shouldn’t have any more impact than any other fan, longtime football enthusiasts have taken issue with the airtime she’s being given.
It’s worth pointing out that Swift probably hasn’t asked to be on camera while at the games, given that she’s successful enough in her own career, and she likely doesn’t even know when she’s being broadcast on TV.
With that in mind, Swift stuck up for herself when she was heckled in Baltimore.

Though Swift hasn’t actively done anything to ‘ruin’ the NFL, it was her own actions that gained her further attention on Sunday as the Chiefs took the win with a score of 17-10.
After the game came to an end, Swift rushed onto the field to celebrate with Kelce, who she hugged and kissed in front of the cameras.
“I’ve never see you like that. That was insane. I can’t believe it,” Swift told the Chiefs tight-end.
“I love you,” she added.
Following the Chief’s win against Baltimore, they’re set to face the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl final on 11 February.
It’s currently unclear whether Swift will be in attendance at the final, which takes place just one day after she concludes a series of gigs in Tokyo, Japan.
