TikTok Star Jackson Mahomes Slammed By Critics For Crashing Brother Patrick’s Post-Super Bowl Interview
While Patrick Mahomes celebrated his second Super Bowl win, his brother Jackson Mahomes also seemed to be having the time of his life.
The clip below shows the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback giving a post-game interview, and as he answers a question, Jackson appears in the background dancing.
According to reports, Jackson didn’t realize that he was interrupting his brother’s live interview as someone offscreen tells him to go away.
Jackson is a successful influencer with more than one million followers on TikTok and 250,000 on Instagram. He has also partnered with major brands like Amazon Prime and Casetify.
He regularly posts videos of himself lip-synching or dancing on the field at the Chiefs’ stadium.
But the 22-year-old isn’t universally liked. The most-liked comment to the above video celebrating the Chiefs’ win says, “This is why we all wanted the Eagles to win.”
He has also attracted controversy over the years. In 2021, he angered Washington Commanders fans when he posted a video of himself dancing on the jersey number of Sean Taylor, a safety who was murdered at the age of 24.
In the same year, he dunked water on Ravens fans during a Chiefs away game after the Chiefs lost.
Jackson is the son of Mets pitcher Pat Mahomes. He majored in marketing at the University of Missouri Kansas City before beginning his social media career.
He started posting dance videos, collaborations with creators like singer Ashley Newman and ab workouts.
When asked about his relationship with Patrick in a YouTube Q&A video, Jackson said, “Do I use him for clout? No. I mean, uh, let’s just be honest. I don’t necessarily use him for clout, but it does have a lot of advantages and I get a lot of opportunities by being his brother, so that’s pretty cool.”
