NFL's Bold Move: Chiefs Kicker Benched for Entire Football Season After Viral Graduation Speech About Women

 

The NFL remains committed to welcoming women and members of the LGBTQ+ community amid Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker’s controversial commencement speech.

 

On May 11, the 28-year-old spoke to the graduates at Benedictine College and quickly received backlash for suggesting that women should not be in the workplace and referring to Pride Month as a deadly sin.

On Wednesday, NFL Chief of Diversity Officer Jonathan Beane told Outsports that Butker’s remarks do not reflect the league’s values.

‘Harrison Butker gave a speech in his personal capacity,’ Beane told Outsports in a written statement.

‘His views are not those of the NFL as an organization,’ he continued. ‘The NFL is steadfast in our commitment to inclusion, which only makes our league stronger.’

The NFL maximized its effort to create an inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ fans and employees.

In doing so, the league has released rainbow-inspired NFL Pride gear and hosted multiple Pride parties at the Super Bowl. They also released a video saying: ‘Football is gay. Football is queer. Football is accepting,’ in 2021.

Aside from the general outburst that came with his controversial statements, Butker outraged Taylor Swift fans by using her lyrics in the inflammatory speech.
