Tom Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a dominant 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. In doing so, he won his seventh Super Bowl trophy of his career and his fifth Super Bowl MVP trophy.

Unfortunately, the game was not without controversy.

Security chiefs Tyrann Mathieu and Brady had several confrontations during the game, including a particularly memorable one in which the former stuck his finger to Brady’s face.

Mathieu’s strange display of emotion made many wonder: what made him so angry?

In response, Mathieu seems to have answered the question with this tweet:

The subtext is clear: he seems to be referring to Brady using some sort of insult against him. Interestingly, Mathieu immediately deleted this tweet – but not before people had a chance to give their side of the story.

Honey Badger implied that Tom Brady used a racial slur against him.

Even Tom Brady’s most ardent opponents would doubt that, and this is easy to verify since Tom Brady had the microphone in his hand last night.

And I can guess why he deleted that tweet from pic.twitter.com/JjoKPZ3mAN.

I’m not the biggest fan of Tom Brady, but the lie he told about racist remarks is disgusting. Why would you do that?

I think Tyrann should be reprimanded for falsely accusing Tom Brady of using a racial slur ….

So, did Brady use a slushie on Matthew? Well, the answer is easy to verify because the Bucs’ quarterback was a microphone in that game. Here’s what he said:

Brady’s comments seem pretty standard for a soccer game, and certainly nothing like what Mathieu was involved in.

Strangely, after the game, Mathieu insisted that Brady had done something wrong.

“Look, Tom Brady is a great quarterback,” Mathieu said.

“Honestly, I’ve never seen Tom Brady on this side. But it doesn’t matter. No comment. I’m done with it. I’m done.”

Based on what appears to be a fact, Matthew will finally have to come out and clarify exactly what happened. Because the suspicion that someone has used an insult against you, when it is clearly false, is a pretty serious matter that should not go away without some legal solution.

It’s already been a rough week for the Chiefs, as Andy Reid’s son and his assistant Britt Reid left a 5-year-old with fatal injuries after a car ride, Patrick Mahomes’ crippled brother has struck a nerve across the country, and Mathieu’s bizarre behavior is anything but helpful.
