Jackson Mahomes’ timeline of controversies: How brother of Chiefs star became hated by NFL fans

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is one of the NFL’s most popular stars in general. How could it not be him? His ridiculous talent aside, Mahomes has stayed away from controversy off the field since joining the league in 2017.

Not his family. Mahomes’ younger brother Jackson has become a hated figure among many NFL fans.

Jackson keeps himself in the spotlight. The 22-year-old has a million followers on TikTok and is a regular fixture on his brother’s games. It’s hard to miss him – he’s at least an inch taller than his MVP brother.

While he has avoided controversy since the start of this season, unlike years past, he continues to attend games and be active on social media.
