Even though Taylor Swift couldn’t make it to Kansas City to watch her boyfriend Travis Kelce and the Chiefs take on the Eagles in a Super Bowl, that didn’t stop the official Eagles social media from launching an incredible troll on the megastar couple following the Eagles’ 21-17 victory over the Chiefs on Monday Night Football.
Take a look at the epic troll, posted to the Eagles’ Instagram.
That’s A+ work from the Eagles’ social media team. In case you don’t get the context, I will explain.
Taylor Swift fans have been making “friendship bracelets” to wear and trade at her “Eras Tour” concerts this year. The bracelets stem from a lyric in her song, You’re On Your Own, Kid, “So make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it.”
And, Travis Kelce says he tried to pass a friendship bracelet with his number on it to Taylor at one of her concerts in Kansas City this summer. That didn’t happen, but the two are a couple now after meeting in New York City in August and hitting it off. To add to the intrigue, Swift was born and raised in the exurbs of Philadelphia, and is a self-described childhood Eagles fan. Had a Saturday concert in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil not been postponed on Saturday to Monday night due to the death of a concertgoer, Swift would have been in attendance for a Swift-Kelce family extravaganza.
Swift is huge up and down the Mid-Atlantic corridor, even bigger than she is in the rest of the country. But, for one night, Philadelphia Swifties were okay with her getting clowned on social media.
