Taylor Swift Fans Think Jason Sudeikis’ Engagement Question Made Travis Kelce ‘Uncomfy’

As the world continues to speculate about Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s engagement status, Jason Sudeikis seized an opportunity to ask the man himself.

Don’t get too excited. Sudeikis questioned the NFL quarterback about potential proposal plans during a comedy skit for Big Slick’s celebrity weekend charity event in Kansas City…which is not exactly the forum for an honest answer. Per fan-recorded videos, Sudeikis asked Kelce when he plans to “make an honest woman out of Taylor” while in character as a brash football fan.

The Ted Lasso star then referenced Chiefs player Harrison Butker’s infamous “homemaker” speech, adding, “Taylor doesn’t need to be working anymore…I think your kicker agrees with me. He gets it.” (Quick reminder: this was a sketch, not Sudeikis’ honest opinion.)

Kelce didn’t respond to this moment as swiftly as the skit’s other nods to the pop star. He simply smiled, eventually replying, “Guys, you’re really pushing it.”

Just before Sudeikis’ engagement question, comedian Robert Smigel told Kelce to ask Swift about “footing the bill for a new stadium,” to which Kelce played along, shooting back, “Not gonna happen!”

Comedian George Wendt added, “What’s a few hundred million to Taylor? That’s what four tickets cost for one of her concerts anyway.” You can watch the video here.

Over on TikTok, some fans thought Kelce was “uncomfortable” with Sudeikis’ remarks, particularly the line about his teammate. “He looks mad when he mentions the kicker,” one user replied to a clip of his reaction, to which the person who shared the video replied, “I think he felt a bit uncomfy.” Another wrote, “Butker comment changed his face from 😊 to 🙄 really quick.”

In the comments section of an Instagram Reel, one fan replied, “Holy shit. So awkward 😬😂 I mean, Travis is a good sport but man, the way offside is way off side.” Of course, many other viewers on social media argued that Kelce was probably aware of the jokes in the skit and was trying not to break character.

Last month, Harrison Butker came under fire for telling female Benedictine College graduates that they’ve been fed “diabolical lies” about society, encouraging them to embrace the role of “homemaker.” He also quoted Swift’s song, “Bejeweled,” though he referred to the singer as “my teammate’s girlfriend.”
