Perhaps you saw Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce “Hit the Quan” after his touchdown catch Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.

One Chiefs fan did. In fact, Danny Woods wrote an open letter to Kelce.

OK, it appears his “complaint” was more sarcasm than anything else, perhaps making fun of the mother who wrote a letter to Panthers quarterback Cam Newton last month. She complained about Newton’s “chest puffs” and “pelvic thrusts.” It was all pretty ridiculous and you can read it here and see Newton’s response here.

Here is part of what Woods wrote on Monday:

“I don’t know about your family life Mr. Kelce, but I think I’m safe in saying that if I was in the NFL my mom would be watching me every week! Do you really want your mother seeing you hump the air? You have amazing talents, but you are wasting them on the gridiron. You need to audition at a Male Strip club immediately. That way your mother will never see you doing what you displayed on Sunday. You will only be in your prime for so long.”

If you care to read the whole thing, here is the entire letter:
