Former Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long said the woman who antagonized former teammate Jason Kelce's wife, Kylie, in a viral video was "barking up the wrong tree."

Long, 39, the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer turned longtime FOX Sports analyst Howie Long and a member of the Eagles' Super Bowl LII during his first of two seasons with the franchise, responded to the clip on his X account Wednesday (May 28).

"Barking up the wrong tree lady lol," Long wrote.

The Philadelphia-based Word To The Wise Podcast shared the clip and said it was told that the woman attempted to get a photo with the Kelces while they were in their vehicle and went off after Kylie politely declined.

"Story we're getting is crumb bum was trying to get a photo with Kylie & Jason Kelce while they were in traffic or in their car. Kylie politely said no and that's when the lady went off. Hun you just embarrassed yourself," the account wrote.

Kylie is heard pointing out that the woman asked for the photo "in the middle of the street" and points out that she can "smell the alcohol on your breath" and that the woman is "embarrassing yourself."

The incident reportedly took place in Margate City, New Jersey, as Kylie and Jason were on a date Monday (May 27) night. Margate City Mayor Michael Collins issued a formal apology to the couple during an appearance on Mike and Diane Morning Show on 95.1 WAYV Wednesday (May 29) morning.

"On behalf of the City of Margate, I’d like to formally apologize to Jason and Kylie Kelce for the experience they had in Margate over the holiday weekend," Mayor Collins said. "As a father with young children, I know, as well as anyone, the importance of a date night with your wife and would like to offer Jason and Kylie an opportunity for a redo date night dinner in Margate on me."

Kylie, an Eastern Pennsylvania native and former field hockey player, married Jason, a six-time All-Pro, former Super Bowl champion and one of the most beloved players in Eagles history, in April 2018 and shares three daughters, Wyatt, 4, Elliotte, 2, and Bennett, 1, with the recently hired ESPN analyst.
