Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is no stranger to the spotlight, but he recently found himself in the news for a different reason. Kelce attended one of Taylor Swift’s concerts on the Eras Tour, and he had a plan to give her a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it. However, Kelce’s plan was foiled when he was unable to meet Swift before or after the show.
Kelce revealed his failed attempt on his podcast, “New Heights.” He said that he was “butthurt” that he didn’t get to give Swift the bracelet, but he understood why she didn’t have time to meet with fans. “She has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings,” Kelce said.
Kelce’s story has gone viral, and it has been shared on social media by fans of both Swift and the Chiefs. Some fans have expressed sympathy for Kelce, while others have joked about his rejection.
“I feel bad for Travis,” one fan tweeted. “He was so excited to meet Taylor Swift, and then she didn’t even have time to talk to him.”
“Travis Kelce’s story is the funniest thing I’ve read all day,” another fan tweeted. “I can’t believe he got rejected by Taylor Swift.”
Whether or not Kelce’s story is funny, it is certainly relatable. Many people have had their own experiences with rejection, and Kelce’s story is a reminder that even celebrities get rejected sometimes.
Despite his rejection, Kelce seems to be taking it in stride. He has since joked about the incident on social media, and he has even said that he would still be interested in dating Taylor Swift if she ever became single.
