In the months since Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce went public with their relationship, everyone has had an opinion about the power couple. The negative comments tend to attract the most attention—which is why retired NFL player J.J. Watt’s strong message about the Kansas City Chiefs tight end and his pop superstar girlfriend is so refreshing.
Watt, who retired from the NFL after the 2022 season and is currently an NFL analyst for CBS Sports, recently opened up about the massive amount of attention Swift and Kelce’s romance has attracted at Chiefs games this season.
“I think it’s great. I can’t understand why people are so upset about it,” Watt told on Monday, Jan. 29. “I mean, they show celebrities at games all the time. Don’t act like we don’t show male celebrities at games all the time. I don’t really understand why it’s caused such an uproar.”
Because Swift has attracted so many new NFL fans—who likely would not have watched professional football otherwise—Watt said the increased interest “should be nothing but celebrated.”Source: Parade
