Anna Burns Welker, the wife of Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker decided to use Facebook as a tool to bash Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis after the Ravens big win over the Patriots on Sunday night.
Burns Welker wrote on her Facebook page, “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!”
After receiving backlash for the post, Burns Welker quickly deleted the comment and has since released an apology for her comment.
She released her statement to the sports blog Larry Brown Sports, it reads:
“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.”
Ray Lewis has not commented on the Burns Welker comment.
