Matthew Stafford’s wife Kelly has been active on social media for long enough to know that you should never take anything you read at face value. Unfortunately, she let her guard down this week when she happened upon a supposed quote from Aaron Rodgers.

A parody Twitter account called NFC North News posted a fake quote from Rodgers this week in which the Green Bay Packers quarterback praised Kirk Cousins. In the quote, which again was admittedly fake, Rodgers says he or Cousins would be the best quarterback in franchise history if you put either of them on the Detroit Lions or Chicago Bears.

Kelly, whose husband played 12 seasons for the Lions, did not appreciate the quote. She called out Rodgers in her Instagram story.

Mrs. Stafford quickly realized she had been duped. NFC North News made that more obvious by posting a fake follow-up of Rodgers telling Kelly to “sit this one out.” Kelly was a good sport about the whole thing.

This is certainly not the first time we have seen someone duped by a fake Twitter account. Many of the content the accounts create is designed to look very real. Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young also fell victim to one a few weeks back.

Kelly has always been quick to defend Matthew. In this instance, she was just a little too quick.
