The mother of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has called out Super Bowl officials in a tweet mentioning supermodel Gisele Bündchen.
It comes as the Buccaneers won their second NFL title and first in 18 years while becoming the first team to play the big game at home, capping an unusual and challenging season played through the novel coronavirus.
Bündchen’s husband Tom Brady recorded his seventh Super Bowl yesterday evening, guiding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to their second league crown with a 31-9 win over the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes in Super Bowl LV.
Following the game, Mahomes’ mother Randi Mahomes tweeted: ‘If you have to have the ref on your team is that really winning!!! @giseleofficial lol.’

The tweet mentioned Tom Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen
The tweet appeared to reference a number of decisions by the referee during the game.
Tom Brady and Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Tyrann Mathieu were involved in an incident which saw Brady appear to chase down Mathieu after connecting with Antonio Brown for his third touchdown of the first half.
Following a series of mental mistakes and costly penalties by the Kansas City defense before halftime, Chiefs defensive back Tyrann Mathieu began taunting Brady, only to find that the future Hall of Famer was happy to reciprocate.
The pair needed to be separated after Brady ran over to confront Mathieu, who was the only one flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Mathieu received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, while Brady continued without being penalized.
Mother Randi Mahomes also appeared unimpressed with ESPN’s coverage of her son. She took to social media to write: ‘Love our chiefs!! Heartbroken to see how @ESPN @SportsCenter tried making fun of my son. But i know his heart and love for his team and chiefs nation! Thank you chiefs fans.. don’t forget these are someone’s sons tv.’
Mathieu was visibly frustrated after penalties and a scoring pass from Brady to Antonio Brown

Celebrating his victory in Tampa on Sunday night, Brady was pictured sharking a kiss with wife Bundchen while leading children Vivian, Jack and Benjamin on a victory lap around the field.
Tampa’s victory prevented Mahomes and the Chiefs from becoming the first repeat champions since Brady’s Patriots did it in 2003-04.
The NFL completed its 269-game season on time without any cancellations, a remarkable accomplishment that required nearly 1 million COVID-19 tests for players and team personnel.
Due to the virus, only 25,000 mask-wearing fans were allowed in, including approximately 7,500 vaccinated health care workers who were given free tickets by the NFL. About 30,000 cardboard cutouts made the stadium look full.
