Wes Welker's wife apologizes for tirade at Ray Lewis
By QMI Agency
It wouldn’t be the end of an NFL season if a New England Patriots’ wife didn’t have some constructive criticism for opponents.
Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker’s wife, Anna Burns — a former Hooters model — sounded off Monday in a Facebook post, taking direct aim at soon-to-be-retired Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.
“Proud of my husband and the Pats,” she wrote. “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!”
Burns later apologized for the rant, according to TMZ.com.
"I apologize to Ray Lewis and his family for my comments," Burns wrote. "In no way did I mean for them to be mean or hurtful. I'm embarrassed for being a sore loser. I wish Ray and the Ravens good luck. Lesson learned!"
Last year Tom Brady’s supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, let New York Giants fans have it after they taunted her husband’s Super Bowl loss.
"You (need) to catch the ball when you're supposed to catch the ball," she said. "My husband cannot (f******) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time."
The Patriots lost the AFC Championship game to the Ravens on Sunday. Welker had eight receptions for 117 yards. However, he dropped a pass during a crucial part of the game.
