Matthew Stafford’s wife, Kelly, blasts MI as ‘dictatorship’ over COVID-19 restrictions

Kelly Stafford wife of the Detroit Lions QB apologizes after calling Michigan a 'dictatorship' on Instagram about the Govt-19 restrictions

Kelly Stafford, wife of Lions' Matthew Stafford, calls Michigan a 'dictatorship' in Instagram rant

Stafford's post came just hours after his initial outrage, in which he exploded state repression amid an increase in lawsuits. But yes, I want it to work for everyone, I know it's not going to work for everyone, and it's killing me to see people suffering a financial burden from losing their business and getting sick. I'm over living in a dictatorship that we call MI.

I'm going to be blunt: I'm so over it. I am scared of it, too. If you're at risk, do not live your house until there's a vaccine. Shutting them down again is not the answer because they will not make it. Because they will not make it.

Stafford continued, "So once we are able to leave our house, once this dictatorship decides to let us have some freedom, there will be nothing left". I'm just over it. I see all these people and it brings me to tears.

On an Instagram post, Stafford wrote, "should never have used the word 'dictatorship.' "i got caught up in the heat of the moment, that is my fault. i don't know the answer and i won't pretend to". Listen, I know not everybody's gonna agree with me. That's life, OK? We state our opinions, we move on. This is my opinion.

She showed concern over small businesses noting, "They will not make it".

Kelly Stafford apologizes after saying 'I’m over living in a dictatorship that we call Michigan'

"I'm over living in a dictatorship that we call MI", the 31-year-old from Georgia said in an Instagram video Thursday morning. But this is my opinion. "I do not like living in a place where they tell me what I can and can't do". You have yours. Everyone has their own. Starting this past Wednesday, Michigan placed limitations on indoor gatherings - including shuttering schools and indoor dining in restaurants and bars - for the next three weeks.

MI has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases over the past couple days.

MI reported 7,592 new cases and 134 new deaths Thursday, bringing the total to 285,398 and 8,324, respectively, according to state public health agency data. Matthew Stafford was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list twice this year.

Some critics went a step further, suggesting that hospitals ought to deny healthcare for "her or her family" if they happen to contract the illness, while others proposed murder charges in the event Stafford passes the virus to anyone else. He was quickly removed from the list and allowed to re-join the Lions.

The NFL has stated that being on the list does not mean that a player has Covit-19, and being on the list means that they may have tested positive or had close contact with someone who has been in contact with the victim.
