Kelly Stafford, wife of Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford, came under fire on Thursday for comparing living in Michigan under COVID restrictions to "living in a dictatorship."

"All right y’all, here’s what I do best -- coming back to apologize. After I read some of your things and I get grounded a little bit, I’m really sorry. I was in the heat of the moment. I have a friend losing her business, and it’s just getting to me a little bit," she wrote. "So I apologize for calling it a dictatorship. Probably the not so smart use of words. But yeah, I just want it to work for everybody, and I know it’s not going to work for everybody. It just kills me to see people suffer some financial burden for losing their business. And also from getting sick. But I don’t know, I apologize.”
