Baker Mayfield’s wife Emily has been feeling the wrath of Twitter following the Browns’ loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday and it has nothing to do with her husband’s play on the field.

Emily is catching heat on social media for her hot take, putting veteran NFL reporter Mary Kay Cabot on blast for daring to ask players if their head coach Freddie Kitchens wearing a “Pittsburgh Started It” shirt had any effect on the outcome of the game.

“I thought it was pretty stupid,” Steelers guard David DeCastro told Cabot, adding, “That’s a lot of bulletin board material. I don’t know why you do that as a coach.”

Browns defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson said, “Win, lose or draw, you’ve got to have fun with it. I mean, it is what it is.”

Baker Mayfield probably had the best take when he told Cabot, “It’s just a t-shirt. I’ve done much worse.”

Emily Mayfield, however, was not in the mood for Cabot’s line of questioning. The special correspondent for Cleveland TV station WKYC tweeted at Cabot, “Why is this the focus of your questions? 🤔 MUCH more to focus on than that….”

Emily, as you may recall, called a segment of Browns fans “idiots” just three weeks ago, so she is very familiar with the firestorm that comes with criticizing all things Browns.

Cabot wasted no time responding to Emily, tweeting, “I asked exactly one t-shirt question after the game. I asked Baker what he thought of it, and he defended Kitchens, which I thought was pretty cool. He gave a great answer, saying “I’ve done much worse.” Funny, and struck the right note.”

Emily fired right back, replying, “Football, in general, would be a good start.”

Needless to say, Browns fans were also quick to chime in with their two cents on this very odd beef.

Tis true.
