The video shows Ms Matthews celebrating after the conclusion of the game in Kansas’ Arrowhead Stadium. Soon after, she pops a bottle of champagne and proceeds to spray it directly onto the Chiefs fans below – many of whom then look up to the balcony she is standing from.
This isn't the first time her actions have been met with hostility online, either. Ms Matthews has fiercely defended the Chiefs throughout the 2021 season against detractors in the media and online.
Her champagne stunt fell flat with many who saw the video and responded online.

You probably should delete this video, there’s nothing cool about spraying champagne on people who don’t even know it’s coming and it’s cold..As a part owner of a major sports team, you should probably behave as such, not a good look. Especially kids getting sprayed with alcohol

Pretty sure Tom Brady’s wife or practically anyone else’s wife doesn’t act like this. Act like you’ve been there before.

However, while the video did anger many, especially due to the presence of children at the stadium, others lept to her defence for wishing to celebrate the dramatic win in style.
I’m so damn sick of the hate you get. They always have something to freaking say smh. People clearly didn’t see your Instagram where you said that fans literally requested it 😂 Keep being you, Britt!! Don’t listen to the haters. Love you, your energy, and your love for the game!

In response to the backlash, Ms Matthews put out another Tweet on Monday, where she bemoaned the attention the original video generated. “I just wish I could do what I want without getting attacked every week,” she wrote.
