WORLD NEWS – CALIFORNIA – Kelly Stafford, wife of Detroit Lions Quarterback, describes Michigan as « dictatorship » due to Covid restrictions


. .

Kelly Stafford used to get her husband all the attention in the family – he is, after all, Matthew Stafford, the start of the NFL quarterback for the Detroit Lions. But today it is making headlines for controversial comments about putting parts of Michigan under strict restrictions due to the rise in COVID-19 cases..

On Instagram this morning, Stafford recorded a live story about the so-called « hiatus » at the reopening of the state after previous closures. She said in the video, « I finished living in a dictatorship that we call Michigan » and « I don’t like living in a place where they tell me what I can do and what I cannot do. ».

Her comments come on the second day of a three-week « pause » of COVID-19 in Michigan, which banned indoor dining in restaurants, closed personal classrooms for college and high school students, and banned all attending sporting events.

She had already made it clear that she felt bad about people who were sick or hospitalized with the virus, before saying that her heart also went to small businesses with economic losses.. Basically, she was personally upset by what she considered her freedoms to be taken away.

The Instagram user has removed this part of her story that contains her shouting about restrictions:

Michigan has seen a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in the past week. On Friday, the state reported 8,516 cases of COVID-19, a record high for one day for Michigan.

The Stafford issue has been previously stoked by Instagram comments related to COVID-19. Her husband was placed on the NFL COVID-19 / Backup List twice in 2020. The first time before the season came in August for what turned out to be a false positive test result. He was put on the list again in November after he had been in close contact with someone who had tested positive for the virus, even though he himself had received no positive test result..

“I’m about to lose my account,” Kelly wrote in an Instagram post shortly after Matthew was put on the COVID-19 / backup list the first time.. I followed up with a lengthy post that said in part: “The past four days have been kind of a nightmare. . . We all tested negative the next day and we were all negative, including Matthew. . . Then test negative again, and then over and over again.

“I lost my mind because of the way my family has been treated since my husband was put on the COVID-IR list,” she went on to note.. (The couple have four children. Even after we learned it was a false positive, I was called at a grocery store to tell me that I was ‘putting others at risk’, my children were harassed and kicked out of the playground, and I was told I had to wait in my car when trying to pick up the food, and the people closest to us had to submit For testing only so they can get back to work. . . This is for example, but not limited to.

However, this time she seemed to regret her choice of words. After her video this morning went viral, Stafford issued an apology on Instagram. She acknowledged that she “should not have used the word“ dictatorship ”and claimed that she“ was caught in the heat of the moment. She went on to announce once more her mourning for those who had been lost or sick. Stating again that the emotions got their best, she said her words were not what she really felt and that « I love Michigan and the people here. ».
