ason and Travis Kelce address ‘tragic’ Kansas City Chiefs parade shooting, urge fans to donate

 

Jason and Travis Kelce have issued a joint statement following the fatal shooting that took place at the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade last Wednesday.

 

The famous brothers posted a video addressing the tragedy on Monday ahead of their upcoming “New Heights” podcast episode that will debut on Feb. 21.

“We have a pre-recorded episode for you guys coming up on Wednesday but after the tragic events at the Super Bowl parade in Kansas City, it didn’t feel right without you hearing from us first,” Travis, 34, began.

“We just wanted to say our hearts go out to all of the victims, their families, Chiefs kingdom and really all of Kansas City that was there on a day to try to celebrate the community,” Jason, 36, added.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end already donated $100,000 to two sisters affected by the shooting.

“Travis has a really big soft spot for kids and wanted to make sure their families were taken care of and were supported with whatever they needed,” an insider told Page Six Friday.

Meanwhile, his Grammy-winning girlfriend, Taylor Swift, donated $100,000 to a family who lost their mom at the reckless hands of the shooter.

Jason continued in the clip, “One of the things that is evident is how much Kansas City is coming together and rallying around the people that have been affected by this.”

“And one of the beautiful things that we have in doing this podcast is a wonderful community out there.”

He also confirmed that he and Travis plan to do more to support the community and “have some ideas.”

The Valentine’s Day shooting injured 22 people and took the life of one. Just over half of those injured were children.

Police detained three juveniles following the shooting but have released one. Two remain in custody and have been slapped with gun and resisting arrest charges. They are currently being held at a juvenile detention center.

Shortly after the shooting, the Kanas City Chiefs organization showed support for all affected.

“We are truly saddened by the senseless act of violence that occurred outside of Union Station at the conclusion of today’s parade and rally,” their social media statement read.
