While some NFL fans are raving about Taylor Swift's recent interest in the game (more specifically one player), it seems like that sentiment doesn't apply to everyone.
The pop star appeared at the Chiefs vs Jets game on Sunday night and there was a lot of attention on her.
Fast forward just 24 hours and the mood was a little different.
An advert for her Eras Tour flashed on the screen at MetLife Stadium and fans quickly booed the 33-year-old.
This was the same stadium that Swift watched her rumored boyfriend Travis Kelce play in just the day before.
It appears this feeling was felt by fans on social media as well.

One person responding to the video said: "Good. I think I speak for all football fans we are TIRED of hearing about Taylor Swift."
Another added: "Hopefully the NFL wakes up and realizes no one cares about Taylor Swift."
A third wrote: "Yeah we’re all over it - and that’s coming from a Swiftie."
It's only been two weeks since Swift made her debut at one of Kelce's games.
She was seen in a private box with Travis' mom, Donna, and went viral online for her reaction to his touchdown.
Videos of her screaming 'let's f**king go' ripped across social media and the NFL really leant into their new supporter.
Following the Chiefs vs Jets game, the official Twitter/X account for the NFL changed its profile banner picture to three images of Swift cheering along.
The official broadcast camera also cut to the pop star 17 times during the match.
While some people are bemoaning the game's current obsession with Swift attending games, it seems like it's having a real impact on viewership numbers.
The Kansas City Chiefs game against the New York Jets ended up being the most watched Sunday night NFL match since the Super Bowl.
Variety has reported that preliminary data from NBC, Peacock, NBC Sports Digital, and NFL Digital platforms indicates a whopping 27 million tuned into the match.
That's 22 per cent higher than last year's Week 4 game.
Viewership from girls aged 12 to 17 skyrocketed by 53 per cent 'from the season-to-date average of the first three weeks of Sunday Night Football', according to Variety.
There was a similar trend in other age brackets, with 24 per cent more women aged 18 to 24 tuning in, along with 34 per cent of women 35 and older.
