The Kansas City Chiefs were defeated 27-24 by the Cincinnati Bengals. After that loss, the Chiefs were heavily criticized by their own fans. This upset Chiefs safety Juan Thornhill and he lashed out.
In a fiery postgame tweet, Thornhill went after Chiefs fans who have seemingly crossed the line of civility.
Let’s be fucking respectful here… we play our ass off each and every week for y’all and if a player give up a play or we lose a game y’all bash us. Come on now. We need people to lift us up not join the opposing team and drag us down.
Thornhill, also said, he has nothing but love for Chiefs fans who support the team regardless of the outcome of the team’s games.
I do appreciate the Real ones … much respect to you all
The Chiefs defense was a reason why the team lost. The Bengals had 431 total yards in Week 13, including 152 on the ground.
The Chiefs lead the AFC West with a 9-3 record.
