Many NFL fans know Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce to be an uber-talented, fun-loving individual who likes to enjoy life. But this past Sunday, we learned he’s a woke sellout who wants you to get your COVID vaccine.

Kelce was the lead actor in a Pfizer ad that encouraged people to get the ineffective COVID jab and their flu shot at the same time.

Now the content of the ad itself is rather funny, in typical Kelce fashion. But the humor is ruined not just by the fact that it's a Pfizer commercial, but also because he disabled comments about it over on his Instagram account.

That’s right, the guy that’s not afraid to get brutally hit by linebackers and defensive backs was afraid of the potential (and warranted) backlash for being a spokesperson for one of the most deficient companies in America.

Fortunately, social media users were able to find a quick workaround to let Kelce know what they thought about this acting gig.

Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first woke company Kelce has helped promote. He also advocated for Bud Light last month, which means this guy’s manliness factor dropped astronomically as a result.

I guess two things can be true at once: you can be a talented football player with a mind that understands the game at an incredibly high level…and still be horribly misguided in your life choices outside of the game.

If he keeps going in this direction, he might just go out of style, even if he is dating Taylor Swift
