Kadarius Toney claims he was blasting the Giants fans, not the Chiefs
In the days ahead of the Super Bowl, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney found himself in the spot answering questions concerning his profanity-filled comments on social media.
During an Instagram live session, Toney voiced strong remarks that centered around him not being injured and ready to play. The Chiefs’ wideout attempted to clarify the situation by stating that it wasn’t directed at the team but rather at the fans of the New York Giants.
“I never attacked the Chiefs, never said anything about the Chiefs. Who I was referring to was the Giants fans and the people in my comments, my comment box, not even on my live recording, so you wouldn’t even know they were there,” Toney said via ESPN. “But I was referring to them, which I shouldn’t have. I just wanted to go out there. I just wanted to get my message across as far as my injury, but I shouldn’t have did that at the end of the day. I’m a man and I can accept my mistakes just like I accept my wins. I’m just moving past that right now. We’re trying to go out and trying to win [the Super Bowl].”
Toney’s comments seemed to suggest that the Chiefs were not being truthful about his injury status. Head coach Andy Reid said on Jan. 29 that the team wasn’t making up his injury.

The 25-year-old is hoping to take the field on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. It has been a difficult 2023 season that has featured plenty of struggles for Toney.
He and the Chiefs are hoping to end it on a high note by becoming the first team in two decades to repeat as Super Bowl champions.
