Anna Burns Welker, the wife of Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker went on Facebook and gave her opinion of Ravens’ linebacker Ray Lewis.
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!
Of course Mrs. Welker deleted the message, but The Big Lead got a blurry screen shot of it (below).
According to Larry Brown Sports, Welker’s wife issued an apology.
“I’m deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook,” Burns told Larry Brown Sports in a statement. “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.
“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.”
I’m glad we know what Welker’s wife thinks of Lewis.
