L.A. Chargers roast Harrison Butker in NFL schedule release video on social media

The Los Angeles Chargers host threw Kansas City Chiefs star Harrison Butker into the kitchen Wednesday night, creatively poking fun at his belief that women should give up their careers for life at home.

Moments after the NFL released its 2024 schedule, the Chargers dropped a 3 1/2 minutes, Sims style video which spared no one and presented its opponents as clowns or criminals.

At the 2:55 mark, the Chargers’ post showed a Chiefs player No. 7 (Butker’s number) hard at work in an old-fashioned kitchen — cooking, cleaning and wrestling with a flower arrangement.

ESPN’s Mina Kimes, one of the most respected football analysts on television, used laughing tears emoji to summarize Chargers Butker content.

Butker recently delivered her powerful kick in the mouth with a keynote speech pleading for women to abandon their careers and focus on their duties as spouses and mothers.

The speech at Benedictine College, a Catholic liberal arts school in Atchison, Kansas, was widely decried as sexist and misogynistic. He told the graduates that their career aspirations are actually “evil lies” and that their only true happiness will come in the service of their husbands and offspring.

“How many of you are sitting here now, about to take this step, and thinking about all the promotions and titles you are going to get during your career? Some of you could have successful careers in the world,” said Butker, the NFL’s fourth-leading scorer last season. “But I would venture to guess that the majority of you are very excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into the world.”

The Chargers’ social media team is widely considered one of the most creative and incisive in the league, not afraid to poke fun at opponents.

Podcaster Mike Golic Jr. said he was impressed with the Chargers’ quick work to address the controversy surrounding Butker.

“The Chargers have been the gold standard for a while now because their team allows them to take shots at their opponent,” Golic Jr. said.

“And being able to quickly put Harrison Butker in the kitchen after all his comments was an A+ lag within the division and the kind of thing that years ago, I don’t know if teams in the NFL would have necessarily accepted.”

Butker wasn’t the only person or team targeted by the Chargers’ mockery.

  • The Chargers recalled Travis Kelce’s amazement that squirrels could eat bread and how he’s now at the disposal of jet-setting Taylor Swift.
  • The Chargers, with first-year coach Jim Harbaugh, will host the Baltimore Ravens and longtime coach John Harbaugh on November 25. The brothers are depicted as children jumping on their childhood beds.
  • Chiefs superfan Xaviar Michael Bubuda, once known for wearing a wolf costume in his role as “ChiefsAholic,” pleaded guilty earlier this year to a series of bank robberies. The Chargers happily took note of this transgression.
  • Although the New York Jets aren’t on the Chargers’ schedule, that hasn’t stopped the Bolts from reminding fans of Green gang QB Aaron Rodgers’ penchant for conspiracy theories.

The NFL regular season begins Sept. 5 with the Ravens visiting the defending champion Chiefs in a game televised Thursday night by NBC.

The season ends on February 9 with Super Bowl LIX in New Orleans.
