All-Pro defensive tackle Chris Jones had a message for his Kansas City Chiefs teammate Harrison Butker following the backlash prompted by the latter’s comments.

Butker is under fire for the speech he gave during a recent commencement ceremony at Benedictine College. In it, he referred to Pride Month as sinful while stressing the importance of men and women sticking to their roles in the family.

The kicker used his wife as an example, noting that she has found the most fulfillment from her “homemaker” title, which has allowed him to thrive as a breadwinner, husband, and father.

“I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolic lies told to you,” he said.

“Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world. I can tell you that my beautiful wife Isabelle would be the first to say her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and as a mother.”

The speech has attracted rife pushback, with a petition to get the Chiefs to cut Butker now nearing 200,000 signatures.

Still, he has found support in one of KC’s biggest stars, with Jones speaking out in his defense.

“I love you, @buttkicker7! My brotha,” Jones tweeted, reposting a tweet slamming the petition.

Chiefs Heiress Gracie Hunt Has Also Sided With Harrison Butker

Harrison Butker has also received support from Gracie Hunt of the Chiefs ownership family. She drew on her own experience growing up with a full-time mother and spoke of her respect for Butker in an interview with FOX News.

The 28-year-old has been integral to the team’s success and has already helped them win three Super Bowls.

While the NFL has distanced itself from Buter’s statements, the Chiefs have yet to address them.
