Matthew Stafford's wife apologizes for hurling pretzel at 49ers fan Monday night

Matthew Stafford's wife Kelly reportedly apologized in an Instagram comment for throwing a pretzel at a fan during the Rams' 31-10 loss to the 49ers on Monday night.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — It was a rough night for the Stafford's Monday night in Santa Clara during the Los Angeles Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers game.

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford threw two interceptions on their way to a blowout loss against the Niners. Meanwhile, Stafford's wife Kelly apparently had her own issues at Levi's Stadium.

Kelly Stafford apologized in an Instagram comment for throwing a pretzel at a 49ers fan during the game, according to TMZ.

"Girl I knowwwww I'm an idiot. He was saying a bunch of things that were aggressive towards our crew but zero excuse,"  Kelly Stafford reportedly wrote in response to someone who confronted her about it in a comment. "I tried to apologize, but in the end knew I was wrong. Will always stand up for my guy and everyone I love, but obviously I needed to do it completely different! I'm embarrassed too! Sorry you had to witness me in my weak moment!" 

"WHY DID YOU THROW A PRETZEL AT A NINER FAN sitting behind me," a person wrote in the comment, according to TMZ. "Show some class and support your husband and his new team with grace please. I am a Rams fan and am embarrassed by your actions last night."

The Santa Clara Police Department reportedly told TMZ they did not receive a report about the incident and Stafford's agent declined to comment.
