If you’ve never heard of Jackson Mahomes, he’s the far less talented brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and has made his fame being a disrespectful TikTok star.
To give you an idea as to the kind of person Mahomes the younger is, he poured water on a Ravens fan that taunted him and did a TikTok where he danced on the late Sean Taylor’s logo (which was roped off) during a memorial game in Washington.

Mahomes apparently carries a sense of entitlement with him wherever he goes, likely as a result of his brother’s success. He took that entitlement mentality with him into a local Kansas City bar called “ToS,” where Mahomes apparently demanded they seat him and a large group he was with. Due to lack of available space, the bar couldn’t accommodate him, so the entitled Mr. Mahomes went to social media to blow them up.
In an Instagram post, Mahomes warned his followers away from SoT, claiming the service is terrible and the bartenders are rude.
The bar didn’t take it laying down and responded with a superb “apology” on their Facebook page that befits the younger Mahomes:
We are sorry that we set boundaries that you tried to ignore. Often times people with un-earned status and a sense of entitlement think they are above the rules and will lash out at the employee enforcing them.
We are sorry we could not seat your very large group. As you probably saw, our bar is very small.
We are sorry that you have the reach that you do, or at least that you think you do and that instead of using it for something positive you decided to use it to try and crush a small business.
We survived a global pandemic, we’ll survive your ego.
We are sorry you didn’t reach out to us first before taking to social media, but then again that is an expectation we would have from a mature and rational person, not someone who pours water on fans and dances on the memorials of tragically lost people for TikTok clout.
We have not been fortunate enough to be born into a much more talented and much more famous family but we would like to think that if we did have that much luck- we would use our influence in more responsible ways.
We hope our apology finds you well
Somebody get this boy some ice.
Sadly, the bar has already had an attack of conscience (or a phone call from someone more important) and took the post down, replacing it with an apology for their post.
To be honest, they shouldn’t have. The bar was in its right to post this and to be honest, it’s a well-deserved smack across Mahomes’ face, a face that hasn’t had to suffer too much in the way of blowback for his actions.
Anybody with that much influence and reach should act responsibly with the power they wield, and anybody who abuses it to the extent Jackson does should suffer consequences. Apologizing for putting someone like that in their place should be celebrated. They should never feel ashamed about it.
ToS did the right thing, and Jackson should have a change of conscience.
