Harrison Butker is doubling down on his controversial graduation speech

Amid the uproar, Butker's teammates, including tight end Travis Kelce and quarterback Patrick Mahomes, weighed in on the controversy.

While they expressed their disagreement with Butker's comments, they also offered insight into his character and maintained that they valued him as a person above all else.

“I have known him for over seven or eight years and I cherish him as a teammate. He has treated friends and family that I introduced to him with nothing but respect and kindness, and that is how he treats everyone.” Kelse told his brother on the New heights podcast.

“I can't say I agree with most of it, or pretty much anything, other than just loving his family or his kids,” he continued. 'And I don't think I should judge him on his views, especially his religious views on how he lives life. That's just not who I am.”
