Generally, it's bad form and unseemly to criticize the good fortune of successful people.
So let me do it for you.
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and his fiancée Brittany Matthews have disgraced themselves and the team by shoving their gaudy luxury merchandise in the face of locals who are coping with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing economic depression. Flaunting foreign luxury vehicles in a town that manufactures American cars is a tone deaf insult to every working-class resident of this cowtown that seemingly ignores so much death and hardship endured by over the past year.
Don't get it twisted, they can buy whatever they want . . . But publicizing their indulgences and risking locked down online viewers falling into a "compare & despair" cycle of depression is exceptionally callous.
Context . . .
Accordingly . . .
Let's not forget that the Kansas City Chiefs earn a great deal of taxpayer subsidy and so criticism and analysis of Patrick Mahomes and his luxury purchases is justified as long as millions upon millions of local funds are directed toward One Arrowhead Drive whilst a KCMO budget shortfall has forced layoffs and slashed services to both low-income & middle-class neighborhoods.
One last thing . . .
I was gonna try to be politic with this post and still express hope for a Super Bowl repeat because it would make a lot of people happy during a very dark time in our nation's history.
But looking at this disgusting display from Mahomes & his bride-to-be reveals that they don't really care about the community or anyone but themselves . . . So why should the mostly broke-ass denizens of this town want to increase the bankroll of "Money Mahomes" only to have his family spew vulgar, avaricious, advertising garbage back in our face???
Check the damage . . .
Deets . . .
"Nothing like waking up at 8am to a new car on Monday," Matthews wrote in an Instagram story. "Patrick Mahomes YOU THE BEST #momcar."
While it is unclear what the exact model of Matthews' new car is, a Lamborghini logo is visible on the headrest behind Jackson Mahomes' head in the video.
Given the car has back seats, it is likely a Lamborghini Urus, the only four seater model the Italian firm makes. The Urus is a super-powered SUV that costs around $230,000.
