Patrick Mahomes speaks out against fat shamers amid viral 'dad bod' video

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes finds himself once again in the spotlight, not for his prowess on the football field, but for critiques aimed at his physique. The Super Bowl champion recently faced a barrage of comments online, with some labeling him as “severely out of shape” and even resorting to fat-shaming.

 

Mahomes, no stranger to scrutiny over his body, has consistently shrugged off such criticisms. Despite sporting what some deem a “dad bod,” Mahomes remains unfazed, asserting that he’s comfortable in his own skin. The quarterback’s nonchalant attitude towards his physique is evident as he addresses the recent uproar over his appearance heading into the Chiefs’ OTAs.
In a conversation with Pat McAfee on his show, Mahomes expressed his surprise at the continued scrutiny, stating, “It kinda surprised me. I thought we got the whole dad bod thing out of the way last offseason, last season actually in the playoffs. But I guess people still haven’t realized that I don’t have abs.”
Mahomes acknowledges the attention his body garners, particularly after a shirtless photo of him circulated online during the playoffs. However, he remains steadfast in his self-assurance, asserting that he knows his body better than anyone.
Despite the criticism, Mahomes remains committed to his fitness, promising to “continue to work on that.” He attributes his recent appearance to the fit of his shirt and the presence of a backpack, downplaying concerns about any significant change in his physique.
Reflecting on the ordeal, Mahomes maintains his composure, suggesting that a looser-fitting t-shirt might alleviate future misconceptions about his physique. His calm demeanor in the face of criticism underscores his confidence and resilience.
While Mahomes remains unperturbed by the fat-shaming, the incident prompts a broader conversation about body positivity and the harmful effects of online scrutiny. As a three-time Super Bowl champion and elite athlete, Mahomes is well-equipped to manage his physical well-being, making the criticisms seem trivial in comparison.
