Jason Kelce has clarified some of the details surrounding the moment he shared with a McDonald’s employee that went viral last week.

Initial reports suggested the Philadelphia Eagles center stopped by a McDonald’s in Broomall, Penn., specifically to deliver a signed jersey to Danielle Bonham, one of the fast food restaurant’s employees and someone Jason knew from previous encounters was an Eagles fan. But according to Jason, the story of his drive-thru stop “got miscommunicated.”

“I just went to McDonald’s like I usually do, and Danielle had a jersey and I was like, ‘Of course I’ll sign your jersey, Danielle,’” Jason told his brother, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, during an episode of their New Heights podcast that dropped on Wednesday.

Like many fans of the NFL brothers, Travis said he’d also heard a version of the story that deviated from Jason’s recounting. “I thought this was you, like, bringing a jersey to your local McDonald’s?” Travis asked.

“Yeah, that’s not what happened,” Jason, 36, told him. "I got to clear that up.”

Jason doesn’t typically carry signed Eagles jerseys in his car, though he said he might start doing so "after seeing the joy on Danielle’s face.”

Jason also clarified that though Bonham is “awesome” and “one of my favorite fans,” he doesn’t want to identify any one McDonald’s employee as his “favorite.”

“I can’t do that to any of the other wonderful workers,” Jason said, a comment that Travis quickly teased him for.

“Can’t pick any favorites over here. Spoken like a good political man,” Travis, 34, joked.

Later in the episode, Jason returned to the idea of keeping jerseys in his car just in case he runs into fans while out and about.

“I might just start stocking jerseys in the back of my truck, just hand them to my favorite fans,” he said. “I think it’s a great idea.”
