While Travis Kelce might be a tight end on the field, on dates he plays defensive line. (Yes, I looked up football terms for this opening!) As many a Swiftie has noticed, Taylor Swift’s current boy pal recently opened a car door for the Grammy winner, which wouldn’t be such a big deal if it weren’t for the fact that he specifically asked her security team to step aside so he could do it.
In a video from a recent outing in New York City, Kelce can be seen lightly tapping one of Swift’s protectors, and after he steps out of the way, the Super Bowl winner opens the door and takes Swift’s hand to help her out of the SUV. The general reaction from the fandom has been “This is really great!” which shows you how low the bar is for men.
But Jason Kelce, Travis’s brother, a fellow football star and cohost of their podcast New Heights, thought his brother was being not gentlemanly but…aggressive? In the latest episode of their pod, Jason asked Travis about “pushing” the guard, as recapped by Page Six, to which the Chiefs player responded, “I didn’t push. I placed my hand on the gentleman’s back to let him know I was behind him…. If I would have pushed him, he probably would have turned around and tased me.”
