Taylor Swift's appearance on Sunday's AFC Championship game between Kansas Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens bred massive backlash from the fans at M&T Stadium. Although the famous singer was welcomed with numerous greetings from her devoted fans, some people didn't like her presence at that match.

On Sunday, January 28, the Kansas City Chiefs guaranteed themselves the promotion to the Super Bowl by beating the Baltimore Ravens 17:10. This will be their fourth big game in the last five years.

One of the Kansas City Chiefs' biggest stars, Travis Kelce, since July 2023, is dating Taylor Swift, a famous singer and songwriter, chosen in 2023 as Time's Person of the Year. Therefore, Swift showed up at the match to support her boyfriend alongside his family. Right after she came to the game, a video was posted on the TikTok platform on the Barstool Sports account, showing her going through the stadium hallways. Unfortunately, some people were not happy about her presence that day.

"You're ruining football!" - can be heard on the video, shouted by someone in the crowd towards Taylor.

After the game, Taylor Swift and Kelce's family walked down to the field to meet him and celebrate the AFC title and the promotion to the Super Bowl game together. Super Bowl LVIII will be played on February 11 in Allegiant Stadium, Paradise, Nevada. Chiefs will face the San Francisco 49ers, for whom it will be the eighth Super Bowl appearance in history. In the past, the 49ers have won big games five times (XVI, XIX, XXIII, XXIV, and XXIX), and the Chiefs got three (IV, LIV and LVII).
