Patrick Mahomes told to ‘get a grip’ after ‘punk’ behavior leaves Chiefs fans ‘sickened’

Some “sickened” NFL fans think Kansas City Chiefs stars had too much fun during their wild championship parade.

Patrick Mahomes has been told to “get a grip” after video footage showed him seemingly worse for wear while celebrating Kansas City’s Super Bowl victory.

Clips of Chiefs stars with cans of beer in their hands went viral on social media as Mahomes and Co. hoisted the Vince Lombardi trophy on the victory bus on February 15.

The quarterback even appeared to have handed the trophy to someone in the crowd after taking a selfie together.

It later turned out that Mahomes only gave a replica of the trophy back to a Chiefs superfan who brought it with him to the event.

Still, some NFL fans thought the two-time MVP and his teammates behaved inappropriately during the parade.

A few slammed the drinking Chiefs players in letters to the editors of The Kansas City Star.

Janet from Liberty, Missouri, wrote she didn’t oppose drinking in general but was disappointed to see the NFL players pop the cans in public.

“The main reason is that a drinking Chief is not a good role model for young fans who are there to see their heroes,” Janet wrote.

“Second, even the adult fans don’t want to see drunken players at this important celebration. Third, tragic things happen when drinking is involved.

“If the Chiefs cannot go a few hours without alcohol, the organization has a problem.

“I, for one, was sickened to see this for the second time.”

Others joined in criticizing the Chiefs stars on social media.

One tweeted: “Drinking NFL hero is a bad look. Mahomes: get a grip.”

And another wrote: “What a bunch of punks! Great role models they are.

“Drinking on public streets like a bunch [of] 17 year olds and then throwing their beer cans (garbage) out of the bus onto the street.”

Thousands of fans showed up to the Chiefs’ victory parade last week.

Kansas City won their second Super Bowl in four years after a thrilling win over the Philadelphia Eagles at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Mahomes led a second-half fightback from 10 points down in a 38-35 victory.

He scooped the Super Bowl MVP for his performance after ending the big game with three passing touchdowns.
