Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder Publicly Shames Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker During Live Show In Vegas

Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder is aware of Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker’s now-viral commencement speech that’s recently made waves in the sports world.

Over the weekend, he took a moment to comment on the rhetoric while performing live in Las Vegas.

Vedder shamed the Kansas City special teamer in front of a sold-out crowd, criticizing Butker’s beliefs and logic behind the line of thinking.

Butker’s speech began trending on social media this graduation season, landing a negative reaction for comments made about women’s place as homemakers.

After seeing the kicker’s words make headlines, many immediately began to distance themselves from the situation. That included both the NFL and star quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Others around the sports and entertainment world have provided their ‘two cents’ on the topic, with Eddie Vedder being the most recent.

The Pearl Jam singer blasted Harrison Butker’s speech during a live show.

The thoughts were unloaded when Vedder thanked opening band, Deep Sea Diver, for kicking the show off. The Seattle-based indie rock group boasts a pair of female performers, including lead singer Jessica Dobson.

“While I have your attention,” the Pearl Jam rocker began. “Can we please raise our voices, clap our hands, and show our appreciation for the first group to be on the stage tonight… Deep Sea Diver?

“That’s some good men and good women making up a great band. The singer, Jessica, and the keyboard player, Patti, they must not have believed that ‘diabolical lie’ that women should take pride in taking a back seat to their man.”

Eddie Vedder continued on to say that pride should be taken in homemaking, for both men and women, but that women shouldn’t have to give up on their dreams in order to tend to household chores.

“You’re going to benefit by giving up your dreams? I couldn’t understand the logic, so I’m questioning it in public right now… It’s not a graduation speech.”

He then went scorched earth on Harrison Butker.

“The irony was that the football player – well, kicker… You see the kicker doesn’t have the pads because he doesn’t tackle anybody or get tackled – but he started telling men, ‘Don’t forget to puff up your chest and be more masculine. Don’t lose your masculinity.’

“The irony was that when he was saying that, he looked like such a f—ing p—y.”

It’s a stance that many have taken following Harrison Butker’s controversial speech. We now know how Vedder feels, and he likely won’t be the last to voice displeasure.
