This was truly a heartwarming display of true sportsmanship and kindness…

After the intense Bills-Chiefs game that left the Bills with a crushing defeat when Tyler Bass missed a 44-yard field goal in the final minutes, the Bills kicker decided to deactivate his social media accounts due to the overwhelming negativity and hate he received.

Amidst all the chaos from fans at the stadium and backlash towards Bass, there is a silver lining. According to Ten Lives Club, a charitable organization for which Bass serves as an ambassador, over $260k in donations were made in his honor. Super wholesome NFL news. ❤️


A spokesperson for the charity shared with the Today Show that many groups of swifties banded together to show their support and donate on behalf of Bass. This isn’t surprising considering that Taylor Swift loves cats, so naturally, her most loyal fans would also be cat lovers.

“There are a lot of swiftie groups out there that are rallying and donating on behalf of Tyler Bass,” Kimberly LaRussa said in an interview with the Today Show.

Classy move, swifties. Classy move.

But it wasn’t just fans of Taylor Swift who stepped up. LaRussa revealed in her interview that fans of various NFL teams also came together to show their support by donating $22 in honor of Bass’ jersey number–including a large number of KC Chiefs fans and even some loyal members of the Bills Mafia who chose kindness over anger.

“He’s human, he’s a person, we all have feelings. I know people are very passionate about football in Western New York, but you also have to think about him as a person and the human that he is,” LaRussa told WKBW. “He happens to be an excellent football player and is an excellent human as well.”


In the end, this was truly a heartwarming display of true sportsmanship and kindness, as donation-makers came together after one of the most crushing losses of the season.
