Kansas City doxed Harrison Butker on its official city-run X account on Wednesday after the Kansas City Chiefs kicker sparked controversy over the weekend.

Butker told college graduates during a commencement speech that his wife would agree that her life “truly started when she began living her vocation as a wife and as a mother.”

His comments drew swift backlash online, with critics branding him as misogynistic.

“Just a reminder that Harrison Butker lives in … ” the city of Kansas City posted on its official X account, referencing the area where Butker lives.

The city then quickly deleted that post and put out another apologizing for the “previous tweet,” misspelling the word “apologize.”

The apology did not stop social media users from mocking the city’s misstep.

“Someone was sweating so hard when they typed this that they couldn’t spell ‘apologize,'” one X user posted.

“LOL no it wasn’t and I want the name of the employee that you fired for tweeting it. Who did you fire, specifically?” another user posted.

Kansas City Democratic Mayor Quinton Lucas also responded to the controversy.

“A message appeared earlier this evening from a City public account,” Lucas posted. “The message was clearly inappropriate for a public account. The City has correctly apologized for the error, will review account access, and ensure nothing like it is shared in the future from public channels.”

Over the weekend, Butker gave a commencement speech at Benedictine College, a Catholic liberal arts school in Atchison, Kansas, and criticized abortion, Pride Month, and pandemic lockdowns.

“How many of you are sitting here now, about to cross this stage, and are thinking about all the promotions and titles you are going to get in your career? Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world,” Butker said during his remarks. “But I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.”

He added, “It cannot be overstated that all of my success is made possible because a girl I met in band class back in middle school would convert to the faith, become my wife, and embrace one of the most important titles of all: homemaker.”

The Catholic player also called out President Joe Biden, whose staffers have described him as a “devout Catholic.”

“Our nation is led by a man who publicly and proudly proclaims his Catholic faith, but at the same time is delusional enough to make the sign of the cross during a pro-abortion rally,” Butker said during his speech. “He has been so vocal in his support for the murder of innocent babies that I’m sure to many people, it appears you can be both Catholic and pro-choice.”


Butker’s comments spurred a torrent of criticism, including from several high-profile figures such as actor Bradley Whitford and rapper Flavor Flav. Other high-profile figures came out in support of his remarks, including former NFL wide receiver T.J. Moe and sports media personalities Clay Travis and Jason Whitlock.

A petition calling for the three-time Super Bowl champion to be kicked off the Chiefs for his “discriminatory” remarks amassed more than 115,000 signatures.

The NFL distanced itself from Butker’s comments.

“Harrison Butker gave a speech in his personal capacity,” Jonathan Beane, NFL senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer, told PEOPLE. “His views are not those of the NFL as an organization. The NFL is steadfast in our commitment to inclusion, which only makes our league stronger.”
