All of Kansas City was rocking after the Chiefs’ victory over the Buffalo Bills on January 23, and if you witnessed the historic thriller of a game in person at Arrowhead Stadium, you may have even gotten some free champagne in the process!
Well, a champagne shower, that is. In honor of her man saving the day with multiple clutch completions and touchdowns to players like Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman, Jerick McKinnon and more, Patrick Mahomes‘ fiancée Brittany Matthews posted a video celebration of what she described as an “Oops” moment.

Matthews Takes Some Heat
In the video, Matthews fights with the cork before popping the bottle and spilling some directly over the folks seated below, which led to some angry tweets from critics.
One fan wrote: “The ramifications of your actions; innocent fans drenched in cheap champagne possibly leading to frostbite or even hypothermia, children with alcohol in their system. You need to take responsibility for your actions and issue a public apology.”
Another person commented: “Hope no kids were down there.. Sure you’d have a fit if Sterling [Mahomes] was showered with Champagne.”
Another commenter went as far as to say: “Hope you get cited by the Kansas Liquor board, here’s a thought, not everyone wanted to smell like alcohol.”
Many Chiefs fans came to Matthews’ defense, and one person pointed out that Matthews noted in an Instagram Story that she had permission from fans below.
“I’m so damn sick of the hate you get. They always have something to freaking say smh. People clearly didn’t see your Instagram where you said that fans literally requested it. Keep being you, Britt!! Don’t listen to the haters. Love you, your energy, and your love for the game!” she tweeted.
Matthews’ Instagram Story read: “To all the fans who said do this, I freaking love y’all. Chiefs Kingdom is the best fans in the world!!!!”
Sideline reporter Aly Trost also chimed in: “People complaining about Brittany spraying champagne into the stands have clearly never won anything before. Just saying.” Matthews retweeted the post, adding, “Accurate.”
NFL draft analyst Matt Miller added, “or been to Arrowhead.”
Considering the elation erupting around her though, this ‘party foul’ seemed to be forgiven by most. After all, the game was a performance for the ages and even some “cheap champagne” can’t ruin that for Chiefs fans.

Mahomes Shows Allen Respect He Deserves
After the game-winning touchdown pass in overtime, Mahomes participated in the briefest of celebrations before sprinting the length of the field to find his competitor, Josh Allen.
The two quarterbacks had just completed a legendary NFL duel, after all, and Mahomes congratulated him for his outstanding performance. Bleacher Report shared the initial video of the classy move but Matthews quote tweeted it with some insight of her own.
“This is who he is & always will be,” Matthews wrote about her soon-to-be husband with a heart emoji.
