There have been a lot of shots fired back and forth between players from the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens following their heated AFC Championship game. Now, it isn’t just the players who are getting involved in the trash-talk, but the wives as well.
Taking a note from Gisele Bundchen, who ripped Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker just a season ago, Welker’s wife wanted to remind us all about Ray Lewis’ trouble past, which included being indicted on murder charges. Lewis has been the focal point of the media because of this being his final season in the NFL, but Welker’s wife, Anna, wanted to focus on something different.
“Proud of my husband and the Pats,” Anna wrote on Facebook, per Big Lead Sports. “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!”
This won’t be the last time that we hear about Ray Lewis’ murder trial in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl and it shouldn’t be either.
Lewis is no doubt an incredible football player, but for us to idolize him and praise him for his career on the field while ignoring the past murder charges is doing the lost lives of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar an injustice.
