The video of Mahomes running from the bees as if they were an opposition defense quickly went viral on Twitter, and even led to Mahomes responding by saying he doesn’t want to go against bees. Fans on Twitter noted the athleticism of the star quarterback in dodging while holding onto the ball.

The tweet was cleverly captioned, “With the bee fence closing in, Mahomes escapes the pocket.” The quarterback responded to the tweet by Ladd and said, “I don’t mess with bees.”
