Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, a former Cincinnati Bearcats standout, interrupted reporter Tracy Wolfson's on-field postgame interview with Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes on CBS – moments after the Cincinnati Bengals' 23-20 loss in the AFC championship game at Arrowhead Stadium – to yell, "Burrowhead my ass! Woooo! It's Mahomes' house!"

"This team stepped up against a great football team. And we showed this place is Arrowhead, it's not Burrowhead out here," Mahomes added during the interview. "I don't think we have any cigars, but we'll be ready to go in the Super Bowl."

But Kelce was far from finished.

"Hey, I've got some wise words for that Cincinnati mayor," Kelce said during the trophy presentation. "Know your role and shut your mouth, you jabroni!"

Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval took shots at the Chiefs in advance of the game, tweeting a video that even made Bengals fans cringe. He later apologized for his remarks.

Pureval returned to twitter Sunday night to respond to Kelce:

"Yeah. Deserved that," he tweeted. "Congrats to KC on a well-fought win, and good luck in Arizona."

The Chiefs will meet the Philadelphia Eagles in two weeks in Super Bowl 57.
