Following the Patriots’ Super Bowl loss last season, Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen ripped Wes Welker for dropping a key pass and letting her husband and the rest of the team down. Following the Pats’ loss yesterday, Welker’s wife went on the offensive too, though her target was actually an opposing player.
According to TMZ, Anna took to Facebook to pop off on future Hall of Famer Ray Lewis for some items in his past she read about on Wikipedia. Take a look at a copy of her statement below…
"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!"
Not surprisingly, Mrs. Welker’s comments quickly raced around the Internet, and as soon as she found out, she deleted her little backhanded slap and issued an apology for what happened. Here’s a look at her second statement…
"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!"
It’s obviously good for the wife of a professional athlete to emotionally invest in her husband’s games, but it really doesn’t do anyone any favors to be criticizing players from the other team. Making those comments in private is one thing, but airing them in public only makes everyone involved look petty, mean-spirited and overly emotional.
