Some fans have gone way beyond in criticizing the players and the coach that they want them removed from the team once and for all. However, this negative criticism is not taken well by safety Tyrann Mathieu who, along with linebacker Anthony Hitchens, took to Instagram to express their deep emotions.

Tyrann Mathieu calls Kansas City Chiefs fans toxic

On a comment where Hitchens wrote, “All we did was go to 3 AFC Champions games and 2 Super Bowls and 1 SB win… in my first three years here so far!! Y’all fans will never be satisfied its sad!!” Hitchens referred to the impatient fans who went far beyond in criticizing the Chiefs for their lacking of results this season.

However, to this comment, Mathieu targeted all those fans and said, “big facts. This will be one of the most toxic fan bases in all sports.” And with this comment, he insulted all the Kansas City football fans, even those who don’t keep such a perspective.

The Chiefs fans are one of the most diehard fans in the NFL. Since 2006 the Arrowhead has never gone less than 95% in capacity every time the Chiefs take on the field. And the Arrowhead also holds the record of the loudest stadium, when they reached an astounding 142.2 dB during their game against the New England Patriots in 2014.

Mathieu apologizes for his comments

Mathieu later apologized for his rude remarks towards the die-hard fans and said, That was a mistake on my part… I shouldn’t have used those words and I’m man enough to admit that.”

“I haven’t had the season I’ve wanted to have, and as a team I think you could say the same,” he added. “Frustration tends to build up. Obviously, people that really know me—teammates, people I deal with in the community, even fans that I come across in the gas station.”

“I think these people can see me being a genuine person. Obviously, I shouldn’t have used those choices of words. I’m looking forward to playing better and doing better and most importantly not being a distraction to my teammates.”

And with that being said, the players are already in a very tense situation right now and all they need is a little patience and support from their beloved fans. And judging by their previous seasons, the Chiefs will bounce back in no time if they get themselves together at the right time.
