Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Jalen Hurts Criticizes Disrespect Toward Women Amid Harrison Butker’s Controversial Comments

In the aftermath of the controversy surrounding Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker’s commencement speech, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is speaking out in support of women.

“Women are thrust into positions where they have to overcome this, overcome that, and they lack the respect that they deserve,” Hurts, 25, expressed at his team’s Women’s Football Festival.

He continued, as cheers erupted from the crowd, “I’m here advocating for it, not only in football but in every situation. We all know the woman is the rock of everything.” Hurts’ position may not come as a surprise to his fans, especially those who are aware of his meaningful relationships with the women in his life

The Eagles star also has an all-female management team, led by agent Nicole Lynn.

Last year, Lynn played a pivotal role in securing Hurts a five-year $255 million contract extension, making him the highest-paid player in the NFL at the time. Meanwhile, Hurts’ remarks come just over a week after Butker’s contentious May 11th commencement speech at Benedictine College gained widespread attention.

The Chiefs player told women in the audience that they had been told “diabolical lies,” before asserting his belief that their greatest title in life would be “homemaker.” “Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world,” he stated in the address.

Public figures — including Hoda Kotb, Jenna Bush Hager, Maria Shriver, and Flavor Flav — pushed back against Butker’s statements, while the NFL also distanced itself from his comments. Furthermore, a petition asking the Chiefs to dismiss the athlete has now amassed more than 220,000 signatures.

As far as Hurts is concerned, women are the backbone of the Eagles’ success. “It’s been great,” Hurts stated at the event. “I honestly think it’s reflective of just how the fan base is here. You see more of a variety of support from women in our community. That’s good for the team.”
