Chiefs Heiress Gracie Hunt Is ‘Still Processing’ Super Bowl Parade Shooting: ‘The World Is Broken’

Gracie Hunt, the daughter of Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, is speaking out after the Super Bowl parade shooting on Wednesday, February 14.

“The most beautiful, perfect day of love, laughter, & celebration at the Chiefs Super Bowl parade turned upside down in an instant,” she wrote via X on Wednesday, sharing a handful of photos from the day’s events. “I’m still processing today’s tragedy. 💔 I love this city and I’m angry at what took place and heartbroken for the victims, their families, & the KC community.”

The 25-year-old continued: “This world is broken and thank God it is not our home. I’m thankful for the hope of Heaven. Life is precious and each day is a gift. I’m grateful for a Savior whose sacrifice on the cross gives us the assurance of a perfect eternity in Heaven—with no death, no fear, no grief, and no pain. If you don’t have that—I promise you, you want it when you’re facing that moment.”

Gracie acknowledged the “swift actions” of the first responders in Kansas City, thanking them for saving “more lives from being lost” in the chaos. “Thank you to KCPD, Chiefs security, brave citizens, and everyone at Union Station who worked to manage the chaos and pandemonium,” she wrote.
