Will Taylor Swift Condemn Harrison Butker’s Controversial Speech?

Taylor Swift finds herself in a tough spot this week as fans urge the singer to speak out against Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker.

Butker, of course, is a teammate of Taylor’s boyfriend Travis Kelce.

Earlier this week, the Super Bowl winner gave a commencement speech at Benedictine College.

Harrison Butker causes controversy with his bizarre opening speech

And to the chagrin of many, Butker took the opportunity to share his very old-fashioned and misogynistic worldview.

Kicker began his speech with bizarre, paranoid rants about the COVID pandemic:

“While COVID may have played a large role in your formative years, it is not an isolated incident,” he said.

“Bad policies and poor leadership have negatively impacted major life issues,” Butker added, according to the Associated Press.

“Things like abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia, and growing support for degenerate cultural values ​​and media are all due to pervasive disorder.”

Butker encourages college graduates to become stay-at-home moms

From there, Butker’s speech took another bizarre turn. He encouraged the women in the audience – women who were about to graduate from college, mind you – to leave the workforce and become housewives.

“I think it is you, the women, who have been told the most diabolical lies,” Butker said.

“Some of you may go on to have successful careers around the world. But I would venture to guess that most of you are most looking forward to your marriage and the children you will bring into this world,” he added.

“I can tell you that my beautiful wife Isabelle would be the first to say that her life truly began when she began living her calling as a wife and mother.”

Taylor Swift gets dragged into Harrison Butker’s speech

While Butker condemned Catholic bishops who become too intimate with their parishioners – the strangeness of his speech really cannot be overstated – he quoted Taylor without mentioning her by name:

“As my teammate’s girlfriend says, ‘Familiarity breeds contempt,'” he said.

Swifties have generally been supportive of Taylor’s relationship with Travis. But many didn’t like hearing her go into Butker’s bizarre tirade.

“I hope Taylor Swift writes a song about Harrison Butker” wrote a user.

“I don’t see many people talking about how Butker quoted Taylor Swift in his speech. One of the hardest working women in the world right now, in a speech about how women belong in the kitchen.” a third person chimed inand added:

“I hope Travis sent him a nice little text to keep his girlfriend out of his horrible speeches.”

While it would be endlessly amusing if Taylor publicly confronted Harrison, that seems unlikely.

After all, the guy is her boyfriend’s work colleague. However, we hope so Travis I’ll exchange a few words with Butker.

This is a kicker that needs to be put in his place.
