Earlier this week, this photo of a Green Bay Packers Cheerleader was uploaded to a Chicago Bears Fan page on Facebook.
It was posted with the status: Like if You Agree The Packers Have The Worst Cheerleaders In The NFL!
What followed were numerous offensive and sadly predictable comments.
The woman in the photo though decided to fight back and uploaded this video to YouTube.
On a personal note:
As a female sports fan, I am hyper sensitive to issues like this. I love hating the Chicago Bears, and enjoy mocking their players. But I find it distasteful, classless and against the heart of being a fan, to go out of your way to insult a single fan (or cheerleader) of a rival team. In turn, I find this video touching and the true spirit of being a fan. It's not Chicago Bears fans that are evil, its not Packer fans that are the victims. It's about passionate fan bases, that should be able to treat other fans with respect. Therefore, I will be supporting this Packer fan in her quest to get the picture and comments removed, and I hope, after watching this video, you will do the same.
