Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford’s wife Kelly aired all of her coronavirus grievances on her Instagram story Thursday.

The football wife has previously publicly ranted about the NFL putting Matt on the coronavirus reserve list and the atmosphere at the Lions’ stadium, according to Outkick.

“I’m over living in the dictatorship that we call Michigan,” Kelly said. “I understand there’s a pandemic and I understand it’s very scary. I’m scared of it too. If you’re at risk, do not leave your house until there’s a vaccine. But shutting down all these small businesses, things that people have worked their life for, shutting them down again is not the answer. Because they will not make it.” (RELATED: Gov.

Kelly claimed “there will be nothing left” after the coronavirus lockdown has been lifted.

“So once we are able to leave our house, once this dictatorship allows us to have some freedom, there will be nothing left,” Kelly continued. “I’m just over it. I see all these people and it brings me to tears.”

Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced new coronavirus restrictions Sunday as coronavirus cases continue to rise in the state.

The restrictions, which began Wednesday and extend through the end of November, include closing high schools, colleges, indoor dining, casinos and movie theaters, as previously reported.
