The tables have turned for the NFL photographer who fell off a stage and fractured her back during the LA Rams Super Bowl rally.
Kelly Smiley was taking photos of Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford and his wife, Kelly, when she stepped back and plummeted off the 8-foot platform.

Smiley later took to social media to say she fractured her back, but she was “feeling okay”.
Outraged Twitter users dragged Stafford for turning his back and walking away when Smiley fell.
But the tables have turned and now Smiley is being criticized for her old racist, homophobic tweets from nearly a decade ago.
Smiley quickly deleted her account, but not before Twitter users took screenshots.
Everyone was on Matthew Stafford needs to apologize. Kelly Smiley is a full blown racist person out here. pic.twitter.com/lCHYKUcBeg

It turns out that @ kellysmiley23 (she deleted her account) the female photographer that fell at the #Rams Championship Rally is a racist and a homophobe. But #MatthewStafford is the “bad guy”? ????? #KellySmiley #Racist pic.twitter.com/nClvqtrZ5Q

The edge of that stage was doing God’s work. Matthew Stafford shouldn’t pay for Kelly Smiley’s racist ass medical bills like he said he would.

Damn! After seeing her old tweets, I’m convinced Kelly Smiley falling off the stage was karma. She held no punches. ?

Huh? It’s her Twitter account. There’s a reason she just deleted Twitter after people dug these up.
