As the world knows by now, Anna Burns was caught onFacebook talking about Ray Lewis’ baby mamas and murder trial after her husband Wes Welker and Patriots lost to the Ravens. She implied Ray Lewis was a bad role model because of his multiple baby mamas and the fact he made a plea deal in his murder trial which led him to pay off some of the victims’ families.
It was in poor taste even if it was rooted in some truth.
Welker’s wife exclusively spoke to Pepper on Sports and apologized for her actions.
“I’m deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook, including comments about Ray Lewis. 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 NFL team to even make it to the playoffs, and the momentary frustration I felt should not overshadow the achievement of these amazing teams.”
She probably isn’t sorry for what she said, but because she got caught. A good rule of thumb is if you are a wife or girlfriend of a high profile player, just keep your comments off Social Media.
Anna wasn’t on the field dropping passes with Wes Welker. Know your role.
