Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey said on Thursday that his office is “demanding accountability” after Kansas City doxxed Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker on social media following a commencement speech he gave over the weekend.

“My office is demanding accountability after @KansasCity doxxed @buttkicker7 last night for daring to express his religious beliefs,” Bailey posted on X. “I will enforce the Missouri Human Rights Act to ensure Missourians are not targeted for their free exercise of religion. Stay tuned.”

The official Kansas City X account, which stated what town Butker resides in, later deleted the post and issued an apology: “We apologies [sic] for our previous tweet. It was shared in error.”

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas acknowledged that the post was “clearly inappropriate.”

“A message appeared earlier this evening from a City public account,” he wrote. “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.”

Butker ripped President Joe Biden and woke diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies while delivering a commencement address at a Catholic liberal arts school on Saturday.

The three-time Super Bowl champion suggested that Biden, who, like Butker, is Catholic, has betrayed his faith with his support of abortion access.

“Bad policies and poor leadership have negatively impacted major life issues,” Butker said during the undergraduate ceremony at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas.


Butker said “things like abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia, as well as a growing support for degenerate cultural values in media, all stem from the pervasiveness of disorder.”

The place kicker then made reference to Biden without mentioning his name, describing how the president made a sign of the cross during a pro-abortion speech by a fellow Democrat in Florida last month.

“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.

“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,” he added.

Biden is “not alone,” Butker went on.

“From the man behind the COVID lockdowns, to the people pushing dangerous gender ideologies onto the youth of America, they all have a glaring thing in common — they are Catholic,” Butker said. “This is an important reminder that being Catholic alone doesn’t cut it.”
