This is the awkward moment Patrick Mahomes confronts an irate father after he refused to sign an autograph for his son.
Footage showed the father circling the double Super Bowl-winning quarterback while golfing at the American Century Championship in Nevada.
The couple got into an angry argument about why the NFL star only handed out his signatures to some kids in the crowd and not others.
The athlete claimed that he had been told to speed up the game by not signing as many autographs for the fans.
Two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Patrick Mahomes refused to sign an autograph for a young fan while participating in a celebrity golf tournament.
‘Mister. Mahomes, will you sign my jersey when you’re done? The young fan was heard asking politely.
Mahomes refused: “I can’t sign for everyone… I can’t make everyone happy,” he replied.
The boy’s father intervened, defending his son: ‘Yes, you can… you can make one child out of a hundred happy.’
Mahomes was quick to reply, “I’ll make 99 sad.” ‘Okay…one out of 99, at least it’s not zero percent,’ the father replied.
The plea fell on deaf ears and Mahomes seemed to quickly brush off the interaction and set about getting back to his game.
Mahome’s response drew a decidedly mixed reaction online.

A young fan approached him and asked for an autograph on his jersey, but Mahomes refused saying he couldn’t sign for everyone and make everyone happy.
Although Mahomes had previously signed many autographs during the event, he stated that he was asked to limit them to avoid disrupting the game.
“I get the answers here and I generally agree, but I’m going to defend the father, who, if he’s really trying to get a car for his son, is trying to do right by his son.” I am in favor of parents trying to help their children,” wrote one user.
‘No problem. There is always the possibility that a famous person will say no. If not, be understanding. There is a time and a place for everything,” added another.
‘If you want an autograph, come to the training ground on family day. The man is trying to win a tournament. That would be like asking for an autograph in the fourth quarter with 4 minutes to go down by 5 and sitting in the front row,” another tweeted.
Is not wrong. He autographs that kid, and then all the other kids will come running. Let the man play golf in peace’, agreed a fellow respondent.
There was a mixed response on social media about the way Mahomes treated the couple.
Mahomes led the Chiefs to Super Bowl glory last season, completing a fantastic campaign.

The two-time Super Bowl winner was approached by the young man while participating in the American Century Championship, a celebrity golf tournament that takes place in Nevada.
Mahomes, who signed a $450 million contract with the Chiefs in July 2020, has played in the event several times before but claims he was asked to stop signing as many autographs during one of his rounds because he was delaying the game.
Mahomes won MVP honors last season and captured his second Lombardi Trophy.
Mahomes arrived at training camp earlier this week with the understanding that he and his Kansas City Chiefs teammates must be better in 2023 if they are to repeat their Super Bowl victory.
“I think the theme this year is how can we continue to build,” said Mahomes, who reported for camp at Missouri Western State University on Tuesday.
“Obviously we won the Super Bowl last year and it was amazing, but we still have a lot of young guys. We want to keep improving more and more. You look around AFC everyone has improved.
