Urban Meyer’s Wife Leaves Twitter After Receiving Hateful Messages

The Urban Meyer saga has taken another turn, as his wife, Shelley, announced today that she will no longer use Twitter amid the viral video of her husband receiving a lap dance at a bar over the weekend.

In her last tweet, Shelley thanked all of her followers for the love over the years but said that she would be deactivating her account.

Shelley cited all the “hate, vitriol, slander, trash” that came her way in the past week for why she is leaving Twitter. She also commented directly on what her husband did, saying that everyone makes mistakes.

“We all make mistakes-we are all sinners,” she wrote. “If you think you aren’t? Then cast the first stone.”

Meyer’s actions immediately caused a stir among fans and even his own team. Players were reported to have not respected the way that Meyer handled it, as NFL insider Michael Silver reported that Jaguars players said that Meyer lost most of the credibility in the stadium that he had.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan was not too pleased with Meyer as well, issuing a statement on Tuesday, saying that Meyer had to “regain our trust and respect.” Not exactly something you want to hear after just four games at the helm in Jacksonville.

Meyer addressed the media on Monday with an apology after he canceled Monday’s practice after the video came to light. Meyer has insisted he will not resign, despite many urging him to do so.

  1. Not that people should have been abusive to her on twitter, but leaving twitter is going to be a net positive for her (as it would be for everyone).

    Besides, she’s only doing what they all do any time a rich and famous athlete/coach/whatever gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar – it’s more fun to spend all the money than half of it (unless you’re the former Mrs. Bezos, whose half of the money was big enough).

    • Actually, I’m on Twitter because it’s the only way I would know WTF is going on in this country (besides Outkick and the NY Post). I follow people who skew to the right (Matt Walsh, Jesse Kelly, Dan Bongino) and of course the Babylon Bee, a satire site that ridicules the Left – way way funnier than crap like SNL.

  2. Whoopty Damn Doo!!!!!! She has stuck by a man that has enabled a murderer and promoted a man who he knew abused his wife all in the name of winning. I am sure that this is not the first time that she has questioned Urbans fidelity. I can say with confidence that having to come off of Twitter is the least of this woman’s problems.

  3. No respect for a woman whose husband shits on her, especially publicly, and acts like everything is cool and she forgives him. Reminds me of Hilary Clinton. Wild Bill fucked around on her constantly over many years and she stays with him. That ugly, disgusting woman has absolutely no pride or self respect. And she has the balls to go around criticizing Trump.
