Kansas City mayor confirms social media staffer was FIRED for revealing where Harrison Butker lives

 

Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas confirmed a social media staffer was let go for firing off a tweet that revealed the suburb where embattled Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker resides.

Lucas said the city had ‘separated’ from the employee who penned the since-deleted social media post, which followed Butker’s ‘sexist’ commencement speech at Benedictine College last week.

‘There’s been accountability from the city of Kansas City,’ he said on KCMO Talk Radio Thursday morning.

‘We all look forward to moving on, letting the Chiefs play, [and] letting the city do what it’s supposed to do in delivering basic services,’ he went on.

Harrison Butker Speech

Lucas also said the action ‘resolves the back and forth in the political world,’ referencing Attorney General Andrew Bailey’s vow to take action against the city if the employee at fault wasn’t terminated.

The member of Kansas City’s social media team, who has not been identified, originally tweeted, ‘Just a reminder that Harrison Butker lives in [redacted],’ naming the nearby Missouri suburb.

The post angered many people who believed it put Butker at risk, including the Missouri AG, who claimed the Super Bowl champ had been ‘doxxed’ because of his ‘religious beliefs.’

‘Let’s paint this with the proper brush – that is government retaliating against an individual for the expression of their sincerely held religious beliefs,’ Bailey said on the podcast Outkick the Morning earlier this week.

‘That could not be more of a clear case of a violation of his constitutional freedoms and the Missouri Human Rights Act.’

28-year-old Butker has faced widespread backlash for suggesting women should embrace their ‘vocation’ as a ‘homemaker,’ before taking aim at the LGBTQ+ community and President Biden’s stance on abortion during the graduation address.

‘At the end of the day, I support his right to free expression of religion,’ Bailey added.

‘If you listen to what he said and you actually drill down on the words he used – this is a man of Catholic faith, speaking to a Catholic audience at a Catholic university.’

He continued, ‘I’m always going to stand up and fight for athletes or anyone else who wants to express their religious beliefs and are protected by the constitutional law to do so.’

Lucas previously called the tweet ‘clearly inappropriate’ after issuing a public apology.

‘A message appeared earlier this evening from a City public account. The message was clearly inappropriate for a public account. The City has correctly apologized for the error, will review account access, and ensure nothing like it is shared in the future from public channels,’ he said last week.
