Matthew Stafford’s wife Kelly apologizes for Michigan COVID-19 restriction comments

Kelly Stafford was not happy with the restrictions made in her state 

During a crazy 2020 year filled with restrictions, it’s clear some will be frustrated adjusting to life in the COVID-19 protocols. That being said, sometimes it better to say nothing at all instead of perhaps a thing that could become controversial.

Matthew Stafford’s wife, Kelly, certainly is regretting her recent comments made on social media.

Stafford took to Instagram Thursday morning, stating she was “over living in a dictatorship we call Michigan” after a series of restrictions were made by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Later that day, she apologized for her comments on the situation at hand.

Not the first time Stafford has been in trouble surrounding COVID-19

Stafford has made her feelings clear about the COVID-19 protocols surrounding the NFL this season multiple times. Earlier this offseason, the Detroit Lions placed their quarterback on the COVID-19/reserve list, However, the test was later proved to be a false positive, but Kelly received harassment towards her family and friends even though her husband had been cleared.

Earlier this month, Matthew was again placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list again after he was deemed to have been a high-risk close contact of someone who did test positive. Once again, Kelly defended her husband and criticized the league on the reasoning to make names public.

Stafford and his family have battled a tough two years altogether medically. Last year, the 32-year-old would undergo back surgery and miss the final eight games of the season. Meanwhile, Kelly also went under the knife in a 12-hour surgery to remove a brain tumor.

Everyone is feeling the stress due to COVID concerns, but sometimes it’s easier to turn the other cheek. Although Kelly’s thoughts for small business does bring a legitimate message, there are better ways to handle frustration than words that could rub others the wrong way.
