Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce didn’t hold back after defeating the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship, taking a few shots at Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval to refute his shadow sent before the win by 23-20.
«I have some words of wisdom for that Cincinnati mayor. Know your role and shut the fuck up you idiot!» he yelled to a raucous crowd of cheering fans at Arrowhead Stadium, not «Burrowhead,» as the Chiefs call him, on Sunday night.
During his post-game press conference, Kelce was asked more about Pureval, but he thought enough had been said on the pitch.

Kelce, however, threw one more comment in his direction.
«Cincinnati was a better city when Jerry Springer was mayor,» he said with a laugh.

Springer, the famed host of «The Jerry Springer Show,» served as Cincinnati’s mayor from 1977 to 1978 as a Democrat.
Pureval has since responded to Kelce’s comments about the «know your role and shut your mouth» shot, believing it was justified.
After all, Pureval made a proclamation that Joe Burrow should take a paternity test to see if he was the father of Patrick Mahomes while saying Sunday was «Play Us Day.»
«Yeah. I deserved it,» he said on Twitter. «Congratulations to KC on a well fought win and good luck in Arizona. Proud of our fans and our @bengals for the energy all year. Who Dey!»

«The mayor approached me, man. He’s the mayor of Cincinnati, so he’s got to come up with something,» Mahomes said.
