Candace Owens has branded Taylor Swift a “radical feminist” as she responded to Jason Kelce’s social media comments with regards to Harrison Butker’s recent commencement speech.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, on Monday, conservative commentator Owens took the pointed swipe at Swift while addressing Kelce, whose brother, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, is in a high-profile relationship with the pop star. The comments came about due to their opposing views on Butker’s speech.

On May 11, devout Catholic Butker spoke at Kansas’ Benedictine College where he espoused a range of socially conservative views. The Kansas City Chiefs kicker said a woman’s most important title is “homemaker,” and referred to LGBTQ+ Pride Month as an example of “deadly sins.” The speech was met with a strong backlash and the NFL stated that Butker’s “views are not those of the NFL as an organization.”

While Jason Kelce defended some of Butker’s comments during a May 24 episode of his and his brother’s New Heights podcast, he insisted some parts of his speech “are not things that I align myself with.”

The retired NFL star later came to his wife Kylie Kelce’s defense after a person on X called her a “homemaker whose home is a mess,” adding: “Sorry, but it is dirty and messy on television. Seems you’re a bit hypocritical. Y’all are going to be left with nothing but Swifties. You just ruined your gig. It’s a shame.”

Responding, Jason Kelce wrote: “I don’t think of Kylie as a homemaker, I think of her as my wife. I think of her as a mother. She has an occupation, as do I, and we keep our house the best we can. Our marriage is a partnership, we are equals who are figuring it out on the daily.

“The only expectation is that we love each other, support one another, and are committed to our family, that comes first. We both raise our kids, we both work, We both keep our home. It is both our faults it is messy, but such is life with three young children, busy schedules, and neither of us being neat freaks. She also makes a mean sandwhich [sic].”

He went on to clarify that he doesn’t “downplay” the role of a homemaker, adding: “If being a homemaker works for some, and that’s what they want, then hell yeah, that’s awesome, more power to you, but that is not our family dynamic.”
