In the article, Carron Phillips claimed that a Kansas City Chiefs fan found a way to express disdain for both Black people and Native Americans simultaneously. The focus of the article was a photograph capturing a young fan with one side of his face painted black, wearing a Native American headdress.

While accusations of blackface circulated, a closer look at additional images revealed the fan had adorned team colors across his entire face, accompanied by the Native American headdress.
