Travis Kelce's ‘Like’ on a Trump-Related Instagram Post Has Left Netizens Deeply Divided

 

Travis Kelce, famous for his on-field prowess and off-field engagements like promoting Pfizer shots and dating Taylor Swift, has often been speculated as aligning with more liberal views.

 

 

However, his Instagram activity raised eyebrows among fans who deciphered his ‘like’ as a departure from his perceived political stance. This occurred after the Kansas City Chiefs tight end ‘liked’ a post on Instagram, which featured former ESPN anchor Sage Steele and former President Donald Trump together at a UFC event. This seemingly harmless action ignited a debate about Kelce’s political inclinations and public image.

As per Outkick, the post in question featured Steele and Trump at a March UFC event, a moment Steele anticipated would attract backlash due to Trump’s polarizing nature. Despite expectations of criticism, the post accumulated over 58,000 likes, including one from Kelce. This seemingly simple action led to a wave of speculation and criticism from both supporters and critics.

Many people expressed their disappointment on social media and questioned Kelce’s alignment with conservative figures like Trump and Steele. One user expressed, “why is travis kelce following a trump supporter + just generally conservative asshole.” Another account pointed out, “Taylor is not a Trumpie / racist but always date one hmmmmm her team is very good at hiding her racism.” These were less harsh criticisms, as many people seemed angry about Kelce allegedly being ‘pro-Trump.’ One person even quipped, “travis kelce outing himself as a trump supporter was definitely on my bingo card idk about y’all.”

At the same time, many people felt this like had confirmed their suspicions about Kelce’s political stance. A case in point: another account tweeted, “Travis Kelce has liked a post on instagram praising Donald Trump. I always knew this man had MAGA energy but now we have proof.” One user even shared, “Travis Kelce being a Trump supporter should come as surprise to no one. I mean look at him.” Someone else tweeted, “Is anyone actually surprised travis kelce likes trump ? It’s like finding a fork in a kitchen.” Another stated, “take one good look at travis kelce and tell me youre surprised hes a weirdo trump supporter like this isnt that shocking.”

Others, however, defended the NFL player by trying to offer possible explanations. One user mentioned, “Travis Kelce has NOT said he supports Trump. People are spreading around that he does… The caption never mentions Trump and unfortunately there was a picture of Trump with someone else with other non related trump photos. He must have been at an event because I believe the post was from Travis university. Please stop jumping to conclusions without reading.”

Another person stated, “Travis Kelce liked this post and his account is blowing up! How dare he like anything with Trump in it! Or did he just appreciate Steeles perspective?” A similar tweet was also posted from a different account: “Even Donald Trump himself is fully aware of the fact that Travis Kelce dislikes him and has acknowledged it publicly. The fact that you thought it was okay to suggest that Travis likes Trump is utterly bizarre when there’s so much evidence showing that not to be true.”
