·2 min read

Brittany Matthews is using her recent controversy to give back.

On Thursday, the fiancée of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, 26, revealed in a series of Instagram Story posts that she is selling shirts to benefit an anti-bullying charity.

The move comes shortly after Matthews received criticism for a video she posted on Instagram after the Chiefs won their divisional-round game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. In the clip. Matthews is seen celebrating the NFL team's win by popping a bottle of champagne inside her suite at Arrowhead Stadium, before spraying it all over fans seated down below the box.

Matthews received some flak for spraying the attendees, which she previously addressed on Twitter, writing Monday, "I just wish I could do what I want without getting attacked every week."

Part of the proceeds from the apparel, which Matthews describes as "pretty hilarious," will benefit Red Card KC — a Kansas City charity that works to prevent bullying within the community.

"I'm proud to partner with this company and get behind this cause, and hopefully push everything in the right direction and start spreading more positivity on all of these platforms," Matthews says in her videos.

"Here in Kansas City, we lift others up rather than putting them down," Charlie Hustle said in an Instagram post announcing the collaboration.

"But seriously … leave Brittany alone," the local clothing and apparel line added.

In a social media statement, Matthews later revealed that she "will be personally matching the donation made to Red Card KC. I appreciate the KC Community!"

As of Friday morning, only the extra small sizes of the $36 shirt were available to purchase online. All other sizes ranging from small to XXXL had sold out.
