Claudia Oshry may have started the “Great War.”

The “Toast” podcast co-host took part in a hilarious TikTok trend in which women tell their significant others that Taylor Swift made NFL star Travis Kelce a household name.

“Isn’t it, like, so crazy how Taylor Swift, like, invented Travis Kelce? Like, put him on the map,” Oshry said to husband Ben Soffer in a TikTok video posted Thursday.

“Everyone’s talking about him. Nobody knew who he was like a week ago,” she added with a sinister grin.

Soffer did not seem entertained by his wife’s remarks and hit back, “Everyone knew who he was a week ago. He’s, like, one of the best tight ends in football.”

However, Soffer, did admit that there was some truth to Oshry’s “preposterous” trolling.

Influencer Claudia Oshry jokingly claimed Taylor Swift put Travis Kelce “on the map” while participating in a new TikTok trend.
“Nobody knew who he was like a week ago,” the podcaster quipped to her husband, Ben Soffer.
Soffer was not having it and fired back, “Everyone knew who he was a week ago.”

“Taylor Swift definitely made him a little bit more famous, though. I’m not gonna lie,” he said.

Oshry, 29, previously confessed on her podcast that she believed Swift and Kelce’s relationship was fabricated and that they had “never spoken in their lives.”

However, after the 33-year-old “Anti-Hero” singer was spotted cheering for the tight end at the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Chicago Bears game last Sunday, she changed her tune.

“I was wrong, I really believed in my heart that he was being thirsty,” Oshry admitted on Tuesday’s podcast episode.

The GirlWithNoJob Instagram creator then went as far as to dub Swift and Kelce, also 33, “America’s sweethearts.”

“I’m on board 100 percent,” she assured listeners.

Kelce and Swift were seen leaving Arrowhead Stadium together.

Swift and Kelce further proved that their blossoming romance is a thing when they were not only seen leaving Arrowhead Stadium together, but also getting cosy at a private afterparty hosted by the NFL star last Sunday.

Additionally, the Grammy-winning songstress was spotted hanging out with the Super Bowl champion’s family at his $1 million mansion in Kansas City before they all headed to the game together.

It’s rumored that the “Karma” hitmaker will also watch Kelce and the Chiefs take on the New York Jets at MetLife stadium in New Jersey on Sunday.
