Kelly Stafford, the wife of Detroit Lion’s quarterback Matthew Stafford has stirred controversy with a viral rant, calling her state of Michigan a “dictatorship” over new Covid restrictions.
“So I’m going to be blunt, I’m so over it. I’m so over living in a dictatorship we call Michigan,” Stafford says “I understand there’s a pandemic, and I understand it’s very scary. I’m scared of it 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. I’m just over it. I see all these people and it brings me to tears,” she adds.
