Fans accuse NFL legend of fat-shaming Andy Reid during Super Bowl ceremony

Fans online have taken exception to Terry Bradshaw's comments during the Super Bowl trophy ceremony, accusing the NFL legend of fat-shaming Andy Reid.

NFL legend-turned-analyst Bradshaw was on the microphone following the Kansas City Chiefs' 38-35 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on football's biggest stage.

But when welcoming Reid to the stage, Bradshaw made a few remarks about the Chiefs head coach's weight.

“Big guy. Let me get the big guy in here,” he said.


“Come on, waddle over here.”

Bradshaw concluded the interview by saying: “Have a cheeseburger on us.”

The cheeseburger comment is in reference to a saying that has become synonymous with Reid throughout his decorated coaching career.


Even after the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl in 2020, Reid said: “I’m going to get the biggest cheeseburger you’ve ever seen.”

But it seems it was Bradshaw's other remarks which have landed him in hot water with some fans.

Despite Reid remaining light-hearted and seemingly giggling it off at the time, people have flocked to social media to call out Bradshaw.



One person tweeted: "The waddle comment was gross."

While another added: "I like Bradshaw but what he said to Reid was very rude and disrespectful. This man just won the SB and he gets made fun of? Some things you just don't say and are not funny."


As a third said: "I don’t think the cheeseburger comment crossed the line but 'waddling over her' certainly did. I think it may be time for Terry Bradshaw to step down."

But not everyone thought Bradshaw was being out of line with some fans leaping to his defence.

One fan hit back, saying: "It’s two old competitors ribbing each other. Get over it."

As one said: "Terry is Terry and Andy knows this. He laughed along. It was just two friends joking."

And another added: "Maybe, just maybe, this is the kind of relationship they have with each other."

Unfortunately this isn't the first time that Bradshaw's mouth has seen him come under fire.

Just a few months ago, there were calls for the NFL Hall of Famer to be sacked from his broadcasting role after he made a highly-inappropriate joke about suicide.

When talking about wanting to see Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner run the ball more often, Bradshaw said: “Their mentality is throw, throw, throw, throw. I think if this kid ran five or six runs in a row, I think he’d commit suicide or something.”
