Hmm, tell ‘em why you’re mad, girl.
If you’re a diehard football fan and care anything about the New England Patriots or the Baltimore Ravens, I’m sure you were probably really invested in the AFC Championship game against the two NFL titans on Sunday. We know that in the end, the Ravens, led by popular linebacker Ray Lewis, bested the Patriots and are headed to the Super Bowl. And while Patriots fans were probably heated about all that, nobody was more irate than a random woman named Anna Burns Welker, the wife of Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker. She took to her Facebook to show love to her husband’s team and their effort, but to throw an immense amount of shade at Lewis and his personal life. This of course has nothing to do with why her husband’s team couldn’t pull out a win, but in a moment of rage, it’s clear she couldn’t have cared less. The rant went a little something like this, according to the Daily Mail:
‘Proud of my husband and the Pats…By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay! What a hall of fame player! A true role model!’
“I’m deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook. I let the competitiveness of the game and the comments people were making about a team I dearly love get the best of me. My actions were emotional and irrational and I sincerely apologize to Ray Lewis and anyone affected by my comment after yesterday’s game,” she continued. “It is such an accomplishment for any team to make it to the NFL playoffs, and the momentary frustration I felt should not overshadow the accomplishments of both of these amazing teams.”
Though I understand wanting to defend yourself and the team you care about from Internet trolls and haters, the ugliness towards one particular person who hadn’t said anything to you or about you definitely wasn’t necessary. Because no matter what she had to say, Welker and her husband will be at home watching Lewis play on Super Bowl Sunday. Now that’s the gotcha gotcha!
