Cincinnati mayor trolls Patrick Mahomes in cringe-worthy video by joking that Joe Burrow was asked to take a PATERNITY TEST to ‘check if he’s the Chiefs star’s dad’ ahead of AFC championship game at ‘Burrowhead’
The mayor of Cincinnati trolled Patrick Mahomes in a cringe-worthy Instagram video ahead of the Kansas City Chief’s AFC Championship showdown against the Bengals.
Mayor Aftab Pureval poked fun at the Chiefs ahead of the crunch playoff clash, which takes place Sunday, by releasing a mock proclamation Friday.
Taking to Instagram, the mayor shared a video in which he mocked the Chiefs signal-caller by claiming officials had asked Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow to take a paternity test to determine if he’s Mahomes’ father, given his 3-0 record against Kansas City.

He also referred to the Chiefs’ stadium, Arrowhead, as Burrowhead, referencing Bengals fans’ nickname used to taunt their rivals over Burrow’s dominance at their ground.
He then proceeded to take a dig at the city of Kansas City, claiming it was ‘weird’ to be named after a neighboring state.
Pureval also used last year’s 27-24 AFC title game victory over the Chiefs to gloat before wrapping up by proclaiming January 29, 2023 – the date of this week’s blockbuster matchup – ‘They Gotta Play Us Day’ in Cincinnati.

It’s not the first time Pureval has taken the chance to trash talk his city’s rivals this week as he revealed he will be in attendance at Sunday’s game at ‘Burrowhead.’
‘It is so galvanizing and energizing that our Cincinnati Bengals are again in the AFC Championship,’ he said at a city council meeting Wednesday, via KY3.
‘Who Dey, baby! Who Dey! I will be going on Saturday morning. I will be arriving in Kansas City, so I will be at the game at “Burrowhead Stadium.” See what I did there? No? No? Ok. I love that.
‘And so I will be talking a lot of smack to Mayor Quinton Lucas of Kansas City, and hopefully we can bring home the W and be on our way to the Super Bowl. I am very excited about the game.’
The Bengals face the Chiefs at Arrowhead Sunday at 6.30pm EST where Mahomes and Co. will have the chance to make Pureval eat his words.
Cincinnati head to Arrowhead confident on the back of a 10-game win streak.
They have scored at least 20 points in each of those games and produced their best display of the lot in the divisional round to beat Buffalo 27-10 on the road.
Sunday serves as a rematch of the 2022 AFC Championship game, which the Bengals edged 27-24.
However, the Chiefs have engaged in some trash talk of their own this week as linebacker Willie Gay Jr. claimed ‘nothing’ about Cincinnati’s offense impresses him.
