Green Bay Packers’ cheerleader fights back against bullying online Bears fans (video)

Kaitlyn Collins is a former cheerleader for the Green Bay Packers, and also for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, where she attended school. That was in 2009. But on Monday evening on the Chicago Bears Facebook fan page, a Bears fan posted her cheerleading picture and made some unflattering remarks about her looks: “Like If You Agree The Packers Have The Worst Cheerleaders In The NFL!” Other Bears fans joined in on the abuse.

Online sports message boards: you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy, as Obi Wan once said.

But when Collins found out about it, she posted this YouTube video urging viewers to fight back against “cyber bullying”:

On Thursday the Bears Facebook page had taken down her picture, offering this statement:

“The picture of the Green Bay Cheerleader has been removed. For everyone on this page. We do not condone or encourage bullying. We would like to ask that you keep it classy. We understand you are hard core fans, but there’s no need for bullying. We apologize for any hard feelings and encourage everyone to keep this page as a fun experience.”

Collins, on Facebook on Wednesday:

“So blessed to have such wonderful friends and family standing behind me and backing me up. No matter how strong and confident a person can appear, we are still human and negativity does affect us. We can stay strong and stand tall or we can crumble. I am choosing to stand against these bullies.”

I guess you’ve been put on notice, cyber jerks. Do not mess with Wisconsin girls.

    Good for you, young lady. You are a beautiful person. Hang in there, some people are just mean, and there’s not much you can do about it, but good for you for fighting back the best way you could.

    It is highly likely that the idiot who mocked this attractive young woman is probably dating a 185 pound divorcee who has three kids, two chins and no job.
