Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has commented on the controversial commencement speech his teammate Harrison Butker delivered at Benedictine College, a Catholic college, on May 11.

The speech by Butker, 28, decried various “diabolical lies told to women” about topics including abortion, in vitro fertilization (IVF) and surrogacy, as well as President Joe Biden.

On May 22, The Athletic reported that Mahomes, 28, confirmed he had seen “clips” of his teammate’s speech. “I’ve seen the clips… That’s his views,” Mahomes told the outlet, noting that he’s “known” Butker “for seven years.”

The quarterback said, “I judge him by the character he shows every day and that’s a good person,” adding, “We’re not always going to agree. He said certain things I don’t agree with.”

Breaking Down Harrison Butker’s Speech: Read the Chiefs Player’s Most Controversial Comments
Following the backlash to Butker’s speech on social media, the NFL said the league does not agree with the kicker’s views in a statement issued to PEOPLE.

“Harrison Butker gave a speech in his personal capacity. His views are not those of the NFL as an organization. The NFL is steadfast in our commitment to inclusion, which only makes our league stronger,” Jonathan Beane, the NFL’s senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer, told PEOPLE in a written statement.

A statement from the nuns of Benedictine College condemned Butker’s speech, claiming it “fostered division” in the community. “The sisters of Mount St. Scholastica do not believe that Harrison Butker’s comments in his 2024 Benedictine College commencement address represent the Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts college that our founders envisioned and in which we have been so invested.” the statement read.
