KANSAS CITY MO. Tyrann Mathieu has apologized for comments he made on social media about Kansas City Chiefs fans. He said, "That was my mistake."

Mathieu stated that he has not had the season he wanted and that Mathieu could also say the same for the Chiefs. The Chiefs were preseason favorites to win AFC. They have a record of 3-4. "Frustration tends toward build up. People who know me well -- my teammates, the people I work with, and even the fans I meet at the gas station -- can clearly see that I am a real person. These words were not the right ones. I look forward to improving my game and being more helpful to my teammates.

Mathieu posted on his Instagram account, "This might be the most toxic fan base in all of sports," in response to a post that was critical of some of his teammates.

Mathieu has previously engaged with fans on social media. Although he suggested that he would alter his social media operating style, he was not specific.

He said, "That's one thing I want to grow in." "Obviously, I have to do a better job dealing with negativity. There is a time and place for everything.

Mathieu said that the incident did not change his decision to continue his career with the Chiefs. He is currently in the last season of his contract.

He said, "I'm all in on Kansas City, and I'm all about my teammates. I try to be all of the community." "I don’t think I can paint an even clearer picture of where I want to go."

Andy Reid, Coach, stated that he prefers his players to stay away from social media.

Reid stated, "I do tell them it's dangerous." "We have to do a better job in this case."
