Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes, is in deep water with PETA.
Mahomes shared a photo from her vacation, where she was playing with a dolphin during a swim on Monday. And PETA had something to say about it.
“We know you love companion animals, but we hope to see you extend your compassion to marine life as well.” PETA wrote in a lengthy comment on Mahomes’ Instagram where he posted the photo.

“In the ocean, dolphins swim up to 60 miles each day, but when they are used for entertainment, they are confined to small tanks or pools. Many dolphins develop painful conditions, such as stomach ulcers, and some die prematurely due to the stress conditions of life”. extreme captivity Not to mention that many diseases can be transmitted from dolphins to human visitors, including viral, fungal, and bacterial infections such as salmonella.
“These types of interactions are dangerous for them AND for us.”
PETA wasn’t the only comment that fired at Mahomes, and others didn’t like that she was with the dolphin.

Mahomes captioned the photo, “Ever snuggle a 400 pound dolphin?” with a heart eyes emoji.
One user responded: “No, because I don’t support places that put them in captivity.”
Another user said: “Please learn about captive dolphins! It’s hell for these beautiful creatures.”
Mahomes is not one to shy away from public scrutiny, as has been the case in recent years, although most of it occurs during football season.
A perfect example was Mahomes trolling the Cincinnati Bengals after this past AFC Championship, which the Chiefs won to reach Super Bowl LVII. The Bengals, and their fan base, constantly pointed to the fact that Mahomes has a poor record against Joe Burrow, leading to the Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium being called “Burrowhead” by their competitor.
With the Chiefs defending their home field, Brittany Mahomes wrote “Cancun on 3,” complete with a peace sign emoji. It was the tweet Bengals cornerback Eli Apple used when Cincy knocked the Buffalo Bills out of the divisional round a week earlier.
Brittany Mahomes has also come to the defense of her brother-in-law, Jackson Mahomes, amid an investigation that he allegedly pushed a waitress and forcibly kissed the owner of a Kansas restaurant.
“They are ignorant,” he said of Jackson Mahomes when answering questions on his Instagram Stories. “He’s a human being just trying to live his life and find his way and until you walk in his shoes one day (which no one ever will) you have no right to say anything about him.
“So it’s best to shut up.”
