Tammy Wynette would be proud of Kelly Hall for standing by her man, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. However, Hall may have realized defending her boyfriend on Twitter, especially during a disappointing season, is a losing battle.

Detroit was defeated by the New York Giants, 23-20 in overtime, at Ford Field on Sunday. With the game seemingly locked up late in the fourth quarter, Stafford missed tight end Joseph Fauria and Giants cornerback Will Hill intercepted the pass and returned it 38 yards for a touchdown. The loss ended Detroit’s playoff hopes and cemented a disastrous season.

Stafford’s team has lost five of their past six games, and he has thrown nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions during that time span. Detroit could not lock up a playoff spot despite injuries to Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Chicago’s Jay Cutler. Lions coach Jim Schwartz could lose his job after this season.

As a result, some Lions fans voiced their displeasure and booed the team during overtime and after the game, a reaction Hall did not like. That prompted her to question those fans on Twitter.

She quickly learned why that was the wrong move when @DetroitKoolAid responded.

Drop the mic. Walk off stage.

It is hard not to respect Hall’s loyalty, but sometimes you have to know your audience.
