Former Green Bay Packers Cheerlead Posts ‘Silent’ Protest Over Chicago Bears Cyber-Bullying

One former Green Bay Packers cheerleader wasn’t going to make a lot noise about a recent post on the Chicago Bears Facebook page, but that didn’t stop her from making a statement louder than any sideline cheer.

Apparently, the administrators of the Chicago Bears Facebook page posted “Like If You Agree The Packers Have The Worst Cheerleaders In The NFL,” which was accompanied by a picture of Kaitlyn Collins, a former Packers cheerleader.

Considering the rivalrly between the Bears and Packers, the comments that accompanied the post were… ugly… to say the least.

Now, some may argue that this may not fit the true definition of cyber-bullying, since the post was not directed a particular person, but by including Collins photo it definitely comes close.

In response to the post, Collins decided to take a ‘silent’ stand against what she determined to be cyber-bullying. Her video is a great example of how people can make the most noise by saying nothing at all.

As Jay Busbee for Yahoo! Sports Shutdown Corner pointed out, the fans began to realize their boorish behavior and things changed.

Facebook apparently didn’t agree that the post met its definition of cyberbullying, and so did not take the post down. But as the comments on the post softened and even chastised the very idea of such a cheap shot, the Fan Page decided to take down the post on its own. “We did not see all the posts to take down the Cheerleader pic until today,” the administrators of the page wrote on Thursday afternoon. “We get hundreds of messages per day and are not always on here. The issue has been resolved. Please respect one another and do not bully on this page.”

What do you think of Collins video?
