‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ Star Patricia Heaton Defends Harrison Butker’s Controversial Commencement Speech

Patricia Heaton urges people to ‘calm down’ after the Kansas City Chiefs kicker’s comments about homemakers went viral.

Everybody Loves Raymond star Patricia Heaton is coming to Harrison Butker’s defense. The 66-year-old actress is issuing her take on the Kansas City Chiefs kicker’s controversial comments after his recent commencement address at Benedictine College went viral last week. ​​​​​​

“I don’t understand why everybody’s knickers are in a twist,” she said in a video on Instagram. “He gave a commencement speech, the audience applauded twice during his speech and gave him a standing ovation at the end so clearly they enjoyed what he was saying.

The guy is espousing his own opinions and Catholic doctrine, so what? It’s his opinion. He can have one. He’s allowed. He’s not a monster for stating what he believes.”

She continued, “He went after bishops much more than he went after women or what women’s choices are, or what he thinks they should be. So I don’t understand.”

In his speech, Butker, 28, criticized President Joe Biden and various other politicized topics, saying, “The bad policies and poor leadership have negatively impacted major life issues. Things like abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia, as well as a growing support for the degenerate cultural values and media all stem from pervasiveness of disorder.”
