Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford made some bad passes on Monday night against the 49ers, but it’s his wife who’s apologizing for a throw she shouldn’t have made.

After a fan called her out in an Instagram comment, Kelly Stafford acknowledged that she was in the wrong when she threw a pretzel at a 49ers fan and was escorted from her seat by security.

I’m an idiot,” Kelly Stafford wrote, via TMZ.com. “He was saying a bunch of things that were aggressive towards our crew but zero excuse. I tried to apologize, but in the end knew I was wrong. Will always stand up for my guy and everyone I love, but obviously needed to do it completely different! I’m embarrassed too! Sorry you had to witness me in my weak moment!”

Neither Levi’s Stadium security nor the Santa Clara police have commented on the matter.

  1. Cringe. Stay home w the kids if you can’t handle the heat. It’s only going to get worse.

  2. Thank you for apologizing. It’s no big deal. Except grace is so rare these days because it would require someone to forego showing their virtue by harping on how bad someone else is.

  3. I can accept her apology, especially if she actually apologized to the person the threw it at. Not her proudest moment I’m sure, but I’ve acted rashly before when someone has been rude to my significant other or my Mom. After all, it was just a pretzel.

  4. Good for her as she wasn’t the instigator. If her family wasn’t disrespected we have no issue here.

  5. What a coincidence. Matt got in some trouble too for throwing a couple of footballs at some guy wearing a Niner jersey.

  6. Apology sounds sincere and she took responsibility for her actions. Increasingly rare these days unfortunately.

  7. She’s ride or die for her man! My wife probably woulda joined in talking trash about me 🙂
