Taylor Swift snaps at CBS and appears to say ‘GO AWAY PLEASE’ after cameraman lingers on her for too long during her visit to watch boyfriend Travis Kelce in Chiefs-Ravens game
Taylor Swift has been an on-screen fixture during Chiefs broadcasts since her relationship with Travis Kelce went public in September, but the pop megastar decided she’d had enough of the attention on Sunday.
While cheering on Travis and the Chiefs during the heartwarming AFC Championship game in Baltimore, Swift was shown on camera for a few seconds by CBS for a Grammys promo.
Swift noticed that she was on the screen and appeared to say the words “please go away” afterwards from the suite from which she, Jason Kelce, Donna Kelce and other VIPS were cheering on the Chiefs.
Fans offered a wide range of opinions on her apparent reaction.
“Even she knows they’re overdoing it,” wrote one on X.

It was Swift’s 12th Chiefs game on Sunday – and the biggest since dating Kelce
“Getting ready for a quick Super Bowl,” added another, with the Chiefs leading the charge. “The NFL really needed this, she might have handily saved the product and ratings.”
Another claimed: ‘They were actually pretty calm about the quick coverage of this game. It’s strange.’
Other fans interpreted Swift as ‘Oh, the Grammys’ at the time she saw herself on screen. The music awards will be held next weekend.
This is the 12th Chiefs game Swift has attended this season since she and Kelce became America’s most famous couple.
Swift was shown on the big screen at Gillette Stadium when the Chiefs faced the Patriots during the regular season in December, and Kelce also turned to the ‘Brads and Chads’ who also booed her amid cheers.
“I will say this, they showed Taylor at the game … you don’t see an entire home team fan base going crazy over someone wearing the opposite team’s colors,” he said on ‘New Heights.’
“It just shows how amazing that girl is, they went absolutely crazy when they showed Taylor on screen, yeah.”
‘There might have been a few Brads and Chads hooting, but mostly everyone was screaming their tails off at her. I tried to keep it cool, I was like, ‘don’t show your cards’.

Travis Kelce broke Jerry Rice’s record for postseason catches against the Ravens on Sunday
Swift previously addressed the ‘Brads and Chads’ herself in an interview with TIME after she was named the magazine’s Person of the Year for 2023.
“I’m just there to support Travis,” she said. “I’m not aware that I’m being shown too much (on TV) and knocking off some dads, Brads and Chads.”
Travis’ 19-yard touchdown opened the scoring for the Chiefs in the first quarter.
And Swift could be seen enthusiastically celebrating the score afterwards, shouting the words ‘oh my god’ following her boyfriend’s tremendous catch.
Jason, meanwhile, cut a more subdued figure after the score a week after ripping his shirt off in Buffalo.
The Eagles star simply exchanged high-fives around him with his fellow VIPs after Travis’ tremendous catch.
Not even halfway through the contest, Kelce broke Jerry Rice’s record for most postseason receptions in NFL history.
The 34-year-old entered Sunday’s game with 145 receptions, 1,694 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns in his playoff career, trailing Hall of Famer Rice in each category.
But with seven early catches, Kelce brought his total to 152, surpassing Rice’s 151 before halftime.
Kansas City went into halftime with a 17-7 lead and the winner of the game advances to the Super Bowl next month.
It’s been a tumultuous season for Kelce and the Chiefs, as the defending champs went just 4-4 after their Week 10 bye and stumbled into the playoffs far from their best.
