After the controversy that surrounded Harrison Butker’s graduating talk, the wife of Clark Hunt, the chairman and CEO of the Kansas City Chiefs, has come out in favor of many of the same ideals that the kicker advocated for in his speech.

In an extensive post that she published on Instagram, Tavia Hunt discussed her views on parenthood and the role that women play in society. She also urged people not to take “things out of context.”

As the mother of three children started, she said, “I have always encouraged my daughters to pursue their dreams and to have a high level of education.” I want kids to understand that they are free to do anything they choose (as long as it is in God’s glory). However, I also want them to know that I do feel that one of the greatest joys that this world has to give is the opportunity to find a partner who loves and respects you as much as or more than himself, and to raise a family together from that love.

Hunt continued by saying, “It is not bigoted to affirm motherhood and to praise your wife, as well as to highlight the sacrifice and dedication that it takes to be a mother.” The realization that the efforts that a woman puts forth in the process of child rearing are not in vain is a source of empowerment. Untold numbers of women with advanced degrees dedicate their whole life to the task of caring for and directing their children. An individual’s disagreement with you does not indicate that they are hostile; rather, it only indicates that they have a different viewpoint.

Next, the woman who was born and raised in Kansas made a suggestion to her followers that they “celebrate families, motherhood, and fatherhood,” and she cited a scripture from the Bible.

After that, she came to the conclusion, “I also warn against taking things out of context.” There is no way that we want to set an example for our children or for other people by using sound clips that are layered with harsh statements. Let there be less hatred in our nation, and let there be more discussion (and values, in my opinion).

In addition, Hunt’s daughter Gracie appeared on Fox & Friends on Friday, and she seemed to agree with Butker’s opinions.

“Well, I can only speak from my own experience, which is that I’ve had the most incredible mother who was able to stay home and be with us as children growing up,” said Hunt, who is 25 years old. It is my understanding that there are a great number of women in the world who are unable to make that choice; but, I am aware that in my own life, it was a significant factor in molding both myself and my siblings into the individuals that we are today.

She continued by saying, “And I really respect Harrison and his Christian faith as well as what he has accomplished both on and off the field.”

Butker’s speech on May 11 at Benedictine College, in which the kicker took aim at the LGBTQ+ community, working women, abortion rights, and other topics, has come under more scrutiny. Tavia and Gracie’s remarks come at a time when the speech has begun to get more attention.

In an appearance on Today with Hoda and Jenna, which took place on Thursday, Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager criticized the athlete’s comments. Maria Shriver and Flavor Flav have also expressed their disapproval of the athlete’s comments.

While everything was going on, Whoopi Goldberg praised Butker’s speech on The View and likened him to another athlete, Colin Kaepernick, a former NFL quarterback who notably kneeled during the playing of the national anthem in 2016. “The same way we want to represent when Colin Kaepernick takes a knee, we want to give respect to people whose ideas are different than ours,” Goldberg said to reporters.

Over one hundred and eighty thousand people had signed a petition on by the time Friday morning rolled around, requesting that the NFL club remove Butker off its roster.
