Some people can be quite cruel.
Just two weeks ago, Patrick Mahomes and wife Brittany Matthews announced that they’re expecting their second child together, two months after tying the knot. In a photo shared on Instagram, Mahomes is seen sitting beside Matthews and their one-year-old daughter, Sterling Skye, who’s holding a sign that reads, “Big sister duties coming soon.”
Despite the happy news, there are some fans who remain nasty towards Brittany online.
One heartless troll in particular made an incredibly troubling comment on the post. It was so bad, in fact, that the wife of the Kansas City Chiefs’ star quarterback just couldn’t ignore it.
“If I was stuck [with] this woman for life I’d kill myself,” the comment reads.
Matthews saw the comment so she reposted it on her Instagram story and fired back at the fan.
“Making comments like this are very very concerning but also highly inappropriate,” she said. “‘Killing yourself’ is not a term to just be throwing around like this.
“It’s actually a very serious matter.
“People deal with these thoughts often. And it can be VERY TRIGGERING to some people.
“The culture and society in todays world can be extremely hurtful…please be aware when you say stuff like this and know it can affect a lot of people if they even read or see these words.
“Let’s be better.”
As someone who’s constantly in the spotlight, Brittany is always going to be the target of insults from internet trolls. But quite often these insults are taken way too far. This was clearly one of those instances.
Be better, people!
