Jason Kelce stands up for his wife against hecklers after Butker’s comments about her being a homemaker

Jason Kelce had a message for the hecklers who were upset with him for distancing himself from the “homemaker” conversation in the NFL.

In a recent episode of their podcast, the Kelce brothers, Jason and Travis, addressed the controversial remarks made by Kansas City Chiefs kicker, Harrison Butker. During a graduation speech, Butker expressed his belief that women should prioritize being “homemakers” rather than pursuing a career.

Butker faced backlash for his remarks and for referencing popstar Taylor Swift, who is currently in a relationship with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, during his commencement address at Benedictine College. The speech garnered criticism from nuns associated with the college, and the NFL made it clear that they were not endorsing his statements.

During an episode of the “New Heights” podcast, Travis Kelce expressed his disagreement with “just about any of” Butker’s comments. Jason Kelce, who recently retired from the Philadelphia Eagles, also stated that he did not “align” with Butker’s views.

But when someone on X, previously known as Twitter, made a comment about his wife, Kylie, Jason Kelce was far more vocal.

Kelce received a tweet from an X user who criticized his wife for being a homemaker and questioned his ability to support her. The user also commented on the cleanliness of their home, suggesting that it appeared dirty and messy on television. This comment seemed to imply that Kelce was being hypocritical in some way.

On Monday morning, Jason Kelce responded to numerous people who had made similar remarks.

“I don’t perceive Kylie solely as a homemaker; she is my beloved wife and a devoted mother. We both have our own occupations and strive to maintain our household to the best of our abilities. Our marriage is built on a strong partnership, where we navigate through life together every day,” wrote Kelce on X. “Our only expectation is that we love and support each other and prioritize our family above all else.”

According to Kelce, their home is messy, and he acknowledges that both of them are responsible for it. He attributes the messiness to the hectic nature of their mixed schedules and the challenges of raising three kids.

“We both raise our kids, we both work, and we both maintain our home,” he expressed. “If being a homemaker is what some individuals desire and it aligns with their goals, then that’s wonderful. More power to them. I want to emphasize that I’m not undermining the value of being a homemaker in any way. However, that particular family dynamic is not what we have chosen.”
