Despite the tragic events that took place earlier that day, both Mahomes and Kelce decided to proceed with their plans of having a get-together with other players from the team.

The shooting occurred during the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory parade, leaving 20 people injured and one person dead. In the midst of this tragedy, Mahomes and Kelce chose to visit the Granfalloon Restaurant and Bar in Kansas City, with Mahomes even renting out the establishment and ensuring that several police officers were present to maintain security.

However, there were also many supporters of Mahomes and Kelce. Defending their actions, one person stated, “They were hungry after all the chaos. Playas’ gotta eat,” while another commented, “Were they supposed to go home and cancel their plans?” It’s important to consider that the players might have been decompressing and spending time with friends and family after the tragedy.

Travis Kelce took to social media to condemn the tragedy and express his support for the victims. “I am heartbroken over the tragedy that took place today,” he wrote, emphasizing his connection to the city of Kansas City. Mahomes also shared his thoughts, saying, “Praying for Kansas City.” Charles Omenihu, a defensive end for the Chiefs, joined in offering support, questioning the need for stricter gun laws in America.

The NFL also released a statement expressing their deep sadness and offering condolences to the victims and everyone affected by the shooting. They commended the quick and thorough response of law enforcement and emergency personnel.

In the end, the debate surrounding Mahomes and Kelce’s decision to go out after such a tragic event reflects the conflicting opinions and emotions that arise in times of crisis.
