Kansas City Bar Has Perfect Response to Jackson Mahomes Being a Twit on Insta
Patrick Mahomes has got to be pretty damn tired of his brother's annoying attempt to become a social media influencer
At the risk of getting nasty DMs and mean tweets from Jackson Mahomes’s social media followers, we’d like to commend a Kansas City cocktail bar for its response to Patrick’s brother’s lame attempt to damage the establishment’s business and reputation.
As part of his ongoing attempt to become a social media influencer, Jackson, whose older brother is Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, attacked downtown KC cocktail establishment SoT after he went there over the weekend and wasn’t given the treatment he expected from servers at the bar.
“[Jackson] lashed out at the bar, by name, using his highly-followed, verified Instagram account,” according to Kansas City Magazine. “On an Instagram story that was just deleted, Mahomes said ‘the service is absolutely terrible and the servers are so rude.’ He then posted responses from people agreeing.”
In a response, SoT took Patrick’s kid-brother to task in the form of an apology about using his privilege and waning influence to attempt to hurt the bottom line of a local business that wasn’t able to accommodate him in the manner he expected.
“We are sorry that we set boundaries that you tried to ignore,” the bar said in a statement. “Oftentimes people with un-earned status and a sense of entitlement think they are above the rules and will lash out at the employee enforcing them. We are sorry that you have the reach that you do, or at least that you think you do and that instead of using it for something positive you decided to use it to try to crush a small business.”
SoT wasn’t done. “We survived a global pandemic, we’ll survive your ego,” the bar posted. “We have not been fortunate enough to be born into a much more talented and much more famous family but we would like to think that if we did have that much luck – we would use our influence in more responsible ways.”
Already creating problems for his brother during previous incidents where he poured water on Baltimore fans and danced on a memorial for deceased Washington defensive star Sean Taylor in a TikTok video, Jackson Mahomes would be best served by taking a timeout from social media.
Of course, that would deprive the world of Jackson’s great insights and killer dance moves, but we’d probably survive.
SoT likely thinks so. “We are sorry you didn’t reach out to us first before taking to social media, but then again that is an expectation we would have from a mature and rational person, not someone who pours water on fans and dances on the memorials of tragically lost people for TikTok clout,” the bar wrote. “We hope our apology finds you well.”
