Aftab backtracks on viral video dragging Kansas City, Chiefs

UPDATE: After some criticism from fans, Mayor Aftab tweeted the following Friday night in response to his own video:

“Nation of Bengal, Lol. I hear you. My competitive juices and my love for Cincy got the best of me. My mistake. Stay hungry and humble. See you on Sunday. Who Dey baby!

CINCINNATI (WXIX) – Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval issued a proclamation Friday intended to anger Kansas City Chiefs fans.

The proclamation declares Sunday, January 29, 2023, the day of the AFC Championship, as “Get Played On Us Day,” a nod to the defiant mantra of this year’s Cincinnati Bengals team.

But that is not even the half.

Pureval, perhaps believing that the pot has not been stirred enough, and perhaps not knowing what karma is, included in the proclamation a few nuggets that it would be charitable to describe as incendiary.

Suffice it to say that the Chiefs locker room will have seen the following video before kickoff.
