NFL brothers Travis and Jason Kelce recently addressed the deadly shooting at the celebratory parade following the Kansas City Chiefs winning Super Bowl LVIII.

The brothers added the message to a pre-recorded episode of their podcast, “New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce.”  The full episode comes out on Wednesday, but the special intro was released on Monday.

“Attention 92%ers, we have a pre-recorded episode for you guys coming up on Wednesday, but after the tragic events of the Super Bowl parade in Kansas City, it didn’t feel right without you guys hearing from us first,” Travis, tight end for the Chiefs, said in the intro.

“We just wanted to say our hearts go out to all of the victims, their families, Chiefs Kingdom, and really all of Kansas City that was really there on a day to try and celebrate the community,” Jason, who just retired after playing center for the Philadelphia Eagles, added.

“It’s unfortunate, and deeply tragic the events that occurred. So we want to thank the local law enforcement that sprang into action, the first responders on scene, and anybody that’s been willing to help those affected by this tragedy,” he continued.

Travis told fans they could help by contributing to an emergency response fund that was set up. 

Jason also shared praise for the community and how it came together in the wake of the tragedy.

“One of the beautiful things that we have in doing this podcast is the wonderful community out there — the 92%ers — everybody that watches this show,” he said.


“We’re still figuring out a way for us to be involved. Obviously, you can donate to these links right now, but we plan on doing something in the future. We’re trying to get that situated right now. [We] have some ideas, but just make sure you’re following, and we’ll be telling you guys ways that we’re trying to get involved,” Jason went on.

This message comes on the heels of Travis’ girlfriend Taylor Swift donating $100,000 to the family of Elizabeth Lopez-Galvan on GoFundMe. Lopez-Galvan, a local radio DJ, was the sole casualty at the mass shooting event. Several other individuals, including young children, were hospitalized with gunshot wounds.
