Ray And Anna

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 PatsBy 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!’

Ouch. What Welker, who was Miss Hooters 2005, is referring to is of course the murder charges Lewis was caught up with in 2000 after a brawl at a party in Atlanta that Lewis and friends attended. Two men lost their lives in that melee, which was between people in Lewis’ camp and another group of men, and the end result was Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar being stabbed to death. Though reports claimed that Lewis was never seen with a knife (and because he was a first-time offender), he was able to get a plea deal where he testified against two friends who were charged with him. He received 12 months of probation, and a huge fine from the NFL ($250,000). Because it was ruled that they were defending themselves, the two men Lewis testified against were acquitted of their charges. From there, Lewis reached a settlement with the families of both Baker and Lollar, got his life together and had some stand out NFL seasons ever since, including getting Super Bowl MVP the year after the tragic brawl–so he’s tried to move forward.  Lewis hopes to retire from the NFL after his last hurrah this season, which will include one more chance to get a Super Bowl ring in February.
While Lewis never commented about Welker’s rant, someone must have spoken to her, because she deleted the post and went forward and apologized for her behavior, not only on Facebook (“‘I apologize to Ray Lewis and his family for my comments. In no way did I mean for them to be mean or hurtful. I’m embarrassed for being a sore loser. I wish Ray and the Ravens good luck. Lesson learned!’) but via a statement to Larry Brown Sports, according to CBS News.

“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!

    She’s telling the truth. It’s not racist to state a fact. SMH

  • Kenedy

    Yell it again Sistah!

  • Candacey Doris

    Let’s all do what’s best in this situation and ignore this attention seeking sore loser.

  • Miyako

    I am a Ravens fan. This woman may be right, but she is coming off as a sore loser because the Patriots aren’t going to the Super Bowl and the Ravens are.

  • Nikki

    Ok Miss Hooters. How about you just sit there and look pretty?

  • Danielle

    Is what she said a reflection of poor sportsmanship and tacky,yes. Was she telling the truth, yes. Just because he is a great football player does not make him a role model.

  • maggie

    but, but, but . . isn’t it true?

    • Nikki

      No. He didn’t have 4 wives.

  • roberto

    was she lying

    • Nikki

      Yes. He didn’t have 4 wives.

  • Sagittarius81

    I hate it when people say something reckless and then they apologized when they get caught saying it. You know what you said and you meant that, too late! This broad need to go have a seat.

  • diamond gibson

    I truly don’t believe her apology. I believe she apologized to save face for herself & her husband. she doesn’t want any problems 2 come up for husband all because she doesn’t no what to say out of her mouth. I never knew about that situation with Ray Lewis & even if I did, it still wouldn’t change my mind that he’s a good man & a great model. I love & will always support my ravens players

    • Miyako

      She knows what to ‘say out of her mouth’, just not when it is appropriate to express her thoughts.

  • GQ

    I think its quite sad when people are quick to point fingers at players who make mistakes. What is even more unsettling is the amount of hate geared toward players of color. Ben Roethlisberger the quaterback of the famed Pittsburgh Steelers has been accused MULTIPLE times of sexual assault against different women. However, whenever he is spoken about in the media none of the sexual assaults are mentioned. Ray Lewis as we know is always reminded of his past legal troubles. Honestly, it says a lot about our society. We must do better.

    Lol. Just like Brady’s wife last year. Always making excuses for why their husbands and team fall short. Stuff like this only makes people hate the Patriots more. GO AWAY MS HOOTER!

  • Shay

    Until these wives start throwing or catching footballs, I don’t want to hear anything they have to say about what goes on on the field.

  • http://twitter.com/missbay Stephanie

    Last year it was Brady’s wife (although she went off on HIS teammates for not playing up-to-par), now it’s Welker’s trophy wife. The coach wouldn’t talk to the press after the game, etc. the Patriots are sore losers in every sense … he (Ray) is a prime example of how you learn from your mistake(s), don’t be held prisoner of your past & go on to live a good life … here’s hoping he get his 2nd Superbowl win & retire a champ. Ray should dedicate Alicia Key’s song “Brand New Me” … #don’tbemad :-)

  • mac

    Classlessness from Boston fans/wives? Shocker only if you don’t watch sports.

    There’s also a report that Pats fans taunted another player about his dead brother, but I digress.

    Anyway, get yo wives, Patriots. Seriously

  • JH

    Sorry Mrs. Bitter because despite all that he’s still going to the SuperBowl and you’re not…HA HA!! #stophating #earlyvacay

    Entitlement and privilege at it’s finest, no? SMH

  • Charla

    The day I learn morals from a Hooters girl who poses practically naked will be the day pigs fly!

  • ladylove22

    She needs to have a seat. But where was her voice when giselle talked trash about her husband dropping the ball she had nothing to say then .. hooter girl have a seat and adjust your push up bra .

    • Miyako

      Maybe she did have something to say then, but we just didn’t hear about it.

  • NeaJ

    I’m not buying her apology. She meant what she said. And once something has been said it can’t be taken back. If you have the balls to say some slick sh*t like that, then use those same balls to stick by it! Back-pedalling? Aint nobody got time for dat!!

    • Faith

      I am not buying her apology as well. She did meant every word she said. Once you put stuff on the internet, it out there. She need to take losing like a man. People trip me out as stuff they say (especially whites) and then try to claim they didn’t mean to say when they know they did. Suppose somebody said something about her husband that was disrepectful, I am sure she wouldn’t even like.

    • JaneDoe

      She was told to apologize and thats the only reason she did.. Just like another blogger stated she only repeated what she prob heard her husband say.. All of that personal ish was totally irrelevent to the game.. She wouldn’t have dared say that ish to a white player

      • NeaJ

        True!!!

    • Kenedy

      I found this bish on facebook, & sent her a nice little message, basically telling her to sit her a** down…then i blocked her.

      • NeaJ

        Lmao!! Niiice
