Michel Sproles, wife of Darren and no stranger to stirring it up on The ‘Gram, posted the above image a couple of days ago. Upon seeing it, Eagles fans everywhere went “ohhh shit,” and Eagles haters everywhere went “ohhh shit,” because no one seemed to agree who she was making fun of.
Was Michel defending Darren and the Eagles against Eagles haters? Was Michel defending Darren and the Eagles against salty fans? No one could really agree:
Technically, NJ.com got it right by calling it down the middle. Michel is definitely defending the team, and she’s defending it against their “critics.” But do those critics consist of Eagles fans or haters? It looks like it’s probably the latter, since Michel had to go ahead and post an explanation of sorts on Instagram as well. Alongside of a headline screengrab that says “Darren Sproles Wife: Most Eagles Haters Have Single Moms,” Michel said:
I have much love & respect for all single mothers, my grandmother was a single mom and so is my sister, so for the individuals that insist on making me a trending topic off some foolish “Repost” shame on you… There are so many other important things going on in the world that deserve our attention. Taking the time to twist up the words of a joke I Reposted is just way to much waisted energy. Do you honestly think I give a damn about who wins or loses in a game… This is a means of entertainment and is not a matter of life and death! As long as my husband is healthy I truly can care less.
So … good? I guess? It’s nice Michel was (seemingly) sticking up for Eagles fans, but “Yeah? Well you don’t have a dad” is just terrible. Now, about that it’s only a game thing…
