Travis Kelce, Dana White Travis Kelce, Dana White

Throughout this year, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has been a spokesperson for pharmaceutical brand Pfizer, which engineers many vaccines including the COVID-19 vaccine. And it seems that these promotions have upset UFC President and CEO Dana White.

During a recent appearance on the Full Send Podcast, Dana White was highly critical of Travis Kelce for promoting Pfizer, calling the vaccine “garbage.”

“I don’t know him. I don’t know anything about him, other than he’s a good football player,” White said on the podcast according to the Daily Mail. “He’s getting a lot of attention right now. I don’t know why – unless he’s a believer – why would you promote that garbage? I don’t know why you would do it.”

White went on to suggest that it’s “pretty obvious” that people “don’t need” the COVID-19 vaccine, suggesting that it’s crazy for Kelce to be promoting the vaccines.

“It’s pretty [freaking] obvious we don’t need it, but like I say, to each his own man. It’s like people that are still wearing masks. You’re basically just telling everybody ‘Hey, I’m nuts. Check me out, I’m [freaking] crazy,'” White said.

The interaction clearly generated a lot of reactions on social media.

Kelce did not immediately respond to White’s criticism.
