Mahomes took to social media in the aftermath of the divisive clip and hit back at her detractors.
She posted on Instagram: ‘I take rumors as a compliment.
‘The fact that you bring my name to tables where I don’t sit shows your obsession. Stay bothered.’

“Mahomes wife needs to get off her high horse,” one user wrote.
Another posted: ‘This is where we’re going from here with the twist of the finger for me.’
“She’s too much… So extra,” another viewer said.
“lol i’m all for kelce and faster than the mahomes,” added a fourth.
However, other viewers jumped to her defense.
One wrote: ‘Honest question can someone explain to me how a Brit rudely twists her finger at an employee? I mean she doesn’t snap her fingers’.
Another defended her, saying: ‘For real reason she said, where are we going?’
‘Not a Mahomes celebrity fan, but wife didn’t do anything rude in the video. She was simply asking a question. Much ado about nothing,’ another commented.

‘I was a maid, barista, bartender. I did every position,” she said in the video. “I believe Brittany was in town shopping for her wedding dress.”
She explained that during her first interaction with the mother-of-two, she ran up a tab that was more than $100.
“She was there with her entire post,” Jessica explained. ‘Patrick wasn’t there. I believe their tab was over $100, maybe around $130. $0 tip.’
Jessica added ‘it happens sometimes’, suggesting that maybe she just didn’t like her, but her behavior didn’t improve as the week went on.
‘They were there almost a week, I think, and didn’t tip any of our staff. Not only did she not tip, she was just downright unpleasant,’ she revealed.
