Anna Burns Welker, the wife of Patriots receiver Wes Welker, was a little disappointed after her husband’s team lost to the Baltimore Ravens last night. Anna took to Facebook to vent about her frustration and ended up writing a few highly critical messages about Ray Lewis.
Lewis, who will be retiring at the end of this year, has been highly praised by the media this season as he lead the Ravens toward a Super Bowl.
Anna, however, doesn’t believe that the future hall of famer deserves any of that praise.
Anna wrote on Facebook:
“Proud of my husband and the Pats. 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!”
The comment was deleted but the Big Lead was able to grab a (blurry) screen grab of the post.
A scroll down Ray Lewis’ wikipedia page shows that the linebacker was arrested and charged for the murder of Richard Lollar on January 31, 2000. The charges were eventually dropped as Lewis reached a plea deal that gave him a year probation for a misdemeanor obstruction of justice charge.
It’s been more than a decade since the Ray Lewis murder trial but Anna Burns Welker, as well as several other Patriot fans, haven’t quite forgotten about the stain on Lewis’ legacy.
To all the people that think Ray Lewis is a role model. He has six children by four women and he was involved in a murder #justsomefacts

I haven’t seen Ray Lewis this happy since he got away with murder.

What do you think of Anna Burns Welker’s criticism of Ray Lewis?
sore losers aren't great role models either barbie.
shut up cry girl.
awww jealous much?
The fact is Ray Lewis was involved in the murder of 2 people back in 2000 and "somehow" lost his blood-stained white suit. How could that happen? I guess you Ray "White Suit" Lewis fans can't figure it out? He also did a plea bargain and got off pretty lucky with his obstruction of justice. Maybe the fact that he was a big sports star got him a pass? Ya think? He acts like a Thug…..did you ever notice that? Do I like the Pats? NOPE I hate them, but all this phoney (blind) adulation of a criminal is a bit over the top.
BRAVO…..THE TRUTH NEEDS TO BE PUT OUT ABOUT THIS PIECE CRAP LEWIS. NEXT THING YOU KNOW, HE WILL BE AN ALL STAR ANALYST ON CBS OR FOX WITH THE REST OF THE LESS THAN DESIRABLES.
EVEN THOUGH SHE IS A FEMALE, AT LEAST SOMEONE HAS THE BALLS TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT RAY LEWIS AND NOT SUCK HIS ASS LIKE ALL OF THE COMMENTATORS ON THE NFL SHOWS.
