Travis Kelce and Jason Kelce Address Kansas City Chiefs Parade Shooting: ‘Deeply Tragic’

Travis Kelce and Jason Kelce discussed the fatal shooting during the Kansas City Chiefs parade following their team’s Super Bowl victory. The professional athletes shared a video on their “New Heights” podcast’s Instagram page, explaining that they taped the upcoming edition on Wednesday, February 21, before the incident.
We had a prepared episode for you guys on Wednesday, but after the horrible events at the Super Bowl parade in Kansas City, it didn’t feel right till you heard from us first,” Travis, 34, added.
Jason, 36, went on to say, “We just wanted to express our condolences to all of the victims, their families, the Chiefs Kingdom, and basically everyone in Kansas City that was there to celebrate the community. The circumstances that occurred are both sad and extremely tragic.

The Philadelphia Eagles player went on to “thank the local law enforcement that sprang into action, first responders on scene, and anybody that has been willing to help those affected by this tragedy.”

Travis also stated that they will provide a link to the Kansas City Chiefs’ disaster response fund so that their listeners may donate to those affected. “Your donation goes toward supporting victims and their families, violence prevention and mental health services,” he added.
The video ended with Jason acknowledging how Kansas City people have banded together to help those touched by the shooting. “We’re still figuring out a way for us to be involved and, obviously, you can donate to these links right now, but we plan on doing something in the future,” he said.
