Harrison Butker controversial speech with Taylor Swift lyrics

 

 

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker is receiving an onslaught from Taylor Swift fans for using her lyrics in his controversial commencement speech.

Butker, 28, delivered the speech at Benedictine College on May 11 and was immediately slammed for criticizing women, taking aim at the LGBTQ+ community, and criticizing US President Joe Biden for supporting abortion.

Without naming the 14-time Grammy winner, Butker referenced Swift’s relationship with his teammate Travis Kelce before quoting her 2022 song Bejeweled.

‘As my teammate’s girlfriend says: Familiarity breeds contempt,’ Butker told the graduates. Upon learning about the mention, Swifties quickly jumped on social media to call Butker out for his message.

‘Who’s going to tell Harrison Butker you can’t quote Taylor Swift when being a misogynistic d***head,’ one user wrote on X.

‘Oh, Harrison Butker, I don’t think you grasped the message of the Taylor Swift song you quoted,’ another added. ‘Go listen to all her albums as homework.’

‘The fact that Harrison Butker who plays on the chiefs was this homophobic AND brought up a Taylor Swift lyric to prove his point that women should be homemakers and that abortion is murder is disgusting,’ a third noted.

Ever open about his conservative Catholic worldviews, Butker insisted that women should stay at home and raise children instead of working. He also urged male students to ‘be unapologetic about your masculinity.’

‘For the ladies present today, congratulations on an amazing accomplishment,’ Butker said in his 20-minute address. ‘I want to speak directly to you because I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolical lies told to you. 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, 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.’

Butker added that his wife Isabelle ‘would be the first to say her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and mother.’ He then praised his partner for ‘[embracing] one of the most important titles of all: Homemaker.’

‘Fight against the cultural emasculation of men,’ He urged the male graduates. ‘Part of what plagues our society is this lie that has been told to you that men are not necessary in the home or our communities. As men, we set the tone of the culture, and when that is absent, disorder, dysfunction, and chaos set in.’

Neither Swift nor Kelce have commented on the controversial speech.
