Travis Kelce addresses disagreement with Butker's speech

Travis Kelce recently addressed his teammate Harrison Butker’s controversial commencement speech on his “New Heights” podcast, expressing his disagreement with “the majority” of Butker’s comments. Kelce, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, made it clear that while he respects Butker as a person, he does not align with most of his views.

 

During the podcast, Kelce emphasized his appreciation for Butker as a person, stating, “He’s a great person,” and acknowledging Butker’s right to hold his own opinions. However, Kelce clarified that he did not agree with much of what Butker had expressed in his speech, except for the part about loving his family and kids.
Kelce went on to share his own perspective, highlighting the importance of his parents in shaping his beliefs. He praised both his mother, Donna Kelce, and his father, Ed Kelce, for their roles as “homemakers” and “providers” in his childhood home. He described their presence in his life as invaluable, emphasizing how it had a profound impact on him. Kelce expressed gratitude for the upbringing he had, stating, “That was a beautiful upbringing for me. … I’m not the same person without both of them being who they were in my life.”
Furthermore, Kelce made it clear that while he respects Butker’s right to hold his own beliefs, he stands firm in his own convictions. He stated, “My views are never gonna be the same as the man next to me,” emphasizing the importance of staying true to his own values and principles.
