Kelly Smiley had the country at her fingertips after footage showed the NFL photographer falling off a stage at the Rams Super Bowl parade and fractured her spne in the process. Kelly Smiley’s fall at the Super Bowl champions’ victory celebration was caught on video and some people have criticized quarterback Matthew Stafford for his response.
Smiley fell as she tried to photograph Stafford and his wife. The Rams’ quarterback turned and walked away while Kelly Stafford went over to check on Smiley. Smiley wrote on Instagram she was “Feeling ok” and added, “Thank you everyone for reaching out.”
That criticism that Stafford felt has now returned to her after social media dug up racist tweets from Smiley that prompted her to delete her Twitter account.
These are pretty damn bad:
A GoFundMe page has been set up on Smiley’s behalf with a goal of $30K, but the Stafford’s have since announced they would cover all her expenses.
One wonders what happens from here.
