Lions QB Matthew Stafford’s wife, Kelly, is the one going viral for her Instagram Stories rant about new COVID restrictions in Michigan.
Michigan announced a three week “pause” phase “which banned indoor dining at restaurants, shut down in-person classes for college and high school students and banned all attendance for sporting events.”
“So I’m going to be very blunt,” Stafford begins from her car.
“I’m so over it.”
“I’m over living in a dictatorship that we call Michigan.”
“I understand there’s a pandemic, and I understand it’s very scary. I’m scared too. If you are at-risk, do not leave your house until there’s a vaccine. But shutting down all these small businesses, things that people have worked their life for, shutting them down again is not the answer because they will not make it.”
“So once we are able to leave our house, once this dictatorship decides to let us have some freedom, there will be nothing left.”
If you look on Kelly’s Instagram, she’s been on a posting spree, shouting out small businesses from restaurants to retail to kids’ activities. In fact, her last 10 posts have been to promote small businesses in Michigan.
