Patrick Mahomes has hinted at underlying disagreements with Harrison Butker, despite describing him as a good person.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has commented on the controversial commencement speech his teammate Harrison Butker delivered at Benedictine College, a Catholic college, on May 11.

 

The speech by Butker, 28, decried various “diabolical lies told to women” about topics including abortion, in vitro fertilization (IVF) and surrogacy, as well as President Joe Biden.

On May 22, The Athletic reported that Mahomes, 28, confirmed he had seen “clips” of his teammate’s speech. “I’ve seen the clips… That’s his views,” Mahomes told the outlet, noting that he’s “known” Butker “for seven years.”

The quarterback said, “I judge him by the character he shows every day and that’s a good person,” adding, “We’re not always going to agree. He said certain things I don’t agree with.”

“Harrison Butker gave a speech in his personal capacity. His views are not those of the NFL as an organization. The NFL is steadfast in our commitment to inclusion, which only makes our league stronger,” Jonathan Beane, the NFL’s senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer, in a written statement.

A statement from the nuns of Benedictine College condemned Butker’s speech, claiming it “fostered division” in the community. “The sisters of Mount St. Scholastica do not believe that Harrison Butker’s comments in his 2024 Benedictine College commencement address represent the Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts college that our founders envisioned and in which we have been so invested.” the statement read.

During his nearly 20-minute speech, Butker spoke at length about traditional gender roles, directing certain sentiments specifically to male and female graduates.

Butker advised the men to “be unapologetic in your masculinity,” and to “fight against the cultural emasculation of men,” while encouraging women to embrace their roles as “homemakers.”

Singling out the female graduates, Butker effectively put them down on the day meant to celebrate the culmination of their academic careers. “For the ladies present today, congratulations on an amazing accomplishment,” he began. “I want to speak directly to you briefly because I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolical lies told to you.”
