After harsh criticism of his actions on social media, Mr Mahomes apologized for the TikTok video, which was later removed from his account but posted elsewhere.

“I want to sincerely apologize for accidentally being on Sean Taylor #21 at FedEx Field. We were directed to stand in that field and I didn’t mean to insult him or his family at all,” he Tweeted on October 17. Later he posted another tiktok videos dancing himself in a stadium compartment, which led to additional criticism.

Mr. Taylor was the fifth pick for the Washington, D.C. team in the 2004 draft, appearing twice in The Pro Bowl, the NFL’s All-Star Game. He was known for his tremendous hits on the field. He was 24 years old at the time of his death at his home in Miami, Florida.

CBS Sports writer John Breech while it is written that “It’s easy to see why fans were fired about Jackson’s actions, the explanation in his apology actually makes some sense. There is photographic evidence from the game that shows several people standing at Taylor’s number and this Very clear that he was directed to stand at that spot”.

“At most NFL stadiums, if you have a sideline pass to get onto the field before a game, there is only a small area where you are allowed to stand and, for whatever reason, Taylor’s number is featured in the spot. The area was where Washington chose to put the fans.” she added.

Jackson Mahomes also came under fire last month when he was filmed throwing water at two Baltimore Ravens fans after being harassed by a group of supporters of the team following The Chiefs’ victory.

Mr Mahomes jokes later tweeted That the joking fans were “thirsty”.
