Mahomes and Reid both supported Butker's right to voice his opinion but took somewhat different approaches to the comments, which took a bold stance on the role of women in society and also targeted the LGBTQ+ community.

Reid voiced his support for Butker's right to speak his mind, telling reporters that Reid didn't feel he needed to address the comments with the team during OTAs.

"I didn't think I need to. We're a microcosm of our society. ... We all respect each other's opinions. We all have a voice," Reid said.

Mahomes also supported Butker's right to share his opinions but made it clear that he disagreed with some of what his teammate said.

"I've known him for seven years. I judge him by the character he shows every day and that's a good person," Mahomes said. "We're not always going to agree. He said certain things I don't agree with."
