Travis Kelce put on the spot for past tweets during New Heights Live show



Last Thursday night in Ohio, NFL star Travis Kelce and his brother Jason Kelce hosted an amusing segment during their live show “New Heights,” which featured a unique spelling bee centered around Travis’s own social media missteps. The event, part of “The Great Lombaby Games,” pitted an athletic team against an academic team in a battle of wits and sport.

In a critical moment of the competition, Jizzle James, the son of former NFL great Edgerrin James, stepped up to the challenge. Tasked with spelling “squirrel”-a word famously misspelled by Travis himself in a past tweet-James aced the test, securing a win for the athletic team. His success was met with enthusiastic applause and a warm hug from co-host Jason Kelce, who jumped off the stage to congratulate him.

The spelling bee drew inspiration from a series of Travis Kelce’s tweets from 2009 to 2011, which resurfaced last November. Among these was an endearing yet incorrectly spelled tweet about feeding a squirrel, which Travis commented on during the show: “I’m just using Twitter as like a diary. There’s no… I’m just out here saying nonsense. ‘I just gave a squirrel a piece of bread’ and spelled ‘squirrel’ like a jackass.”

Travis Kelce reflects on viral tweets

Reflecting on the viral attention his old posts received, Travis expressed amusement and a bit of chagrin, particularly about his spelling. “I think the only reason this one gets crushed is because of the spelling. But I’d be pretty… if I’m throwing bread around and a squirrel is eating it, I’d be pretty pumped up,” he said.

Now 34, Travis Kelce revealed he has attempted to delete these old tweets since entering the NFL, highlighting the enduring nature of social media footprints. His experiences have led him to step back from tweeting, emphasizing the impact of seemingly innocent posts.

Thursday’s event wasn’t just a showcase of spelling skills but also a humorous reflection on how athletes navigate the spotlight, with Travis’s past tweets providing plenty of material for light-hearted fun. This episode of “New Heights” once again proved that sports stars can bridge entertainment and athleticism in the most unexpected and delightful ways.
