GREEN BAY – A woman who was a cheerleader this past season for the Green Bay Packers is fighting back against bullying by apparent Chicago Bears fans. Kaitlyn Collins says that on Feb. 4, someone uploaded a picture of her to the Chicago Bears Fan Facebook page. The photo had the caption “Like if You Agree The Packers Have The Worst Cheerleaders In The NFL!” As of 8:55 a.m. Thursday, the photo had nearly 3,500 likes and more than 640 comments.
One of the comments says “Doesn’t get uglier. Truly an eyesore.” Other comments had sexual connotations and vulgarity. Apparently, many Bears fans joined in with Packers fans to denounce the comments. Then, she posted her own video to fight the bullying. She says she asked Facebook to take down the post, but so far, they have not done so. Recently retired Packers wide receiver Donald Driver and current Packers guard T.J. Lang have tweeted their support for her as well.
Look, I’m not going to rate this chick’s attractiveness because I honestly don’t give a fuck. But what I don’t like about this whole story is how Kaitlyn is basically crying whoa is me and how she is some poor victim when she is the one who signed up to be a cheerleader. No one put a gun to her head. No one made her cheerlead. Did she complain when she got to stand on Lambeau field every Sunday in front of 60,000 people? Did she complain when she got all the benefits and perks of being associated with the Packers? I bet she didn’t. Did she love the fact that TJ Lang and Donald Driver gave her attention on twitter? Or that the Milwaukee newspaper ran her story? I bet she did.
So yeah, the internet can be a mean and ugly place sometimes, but guess what honey, you aren’t just some random person picked out of a crowd. You can’t enjoy the benefits of being a Packers cheerleader and be upset when things go south. Life doesn’t work that way.
Quick way to make me hate you as a person is to make a youtube video where you force me to read words instead of speaking like a normal human being.
