A former Green Bay Packers cheerleader is fighting back after being taunted by a group of Chicago Bears fans on Facebook.Kaitlyn Collins, who cheered for the Packers in 2009 while attending classes at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, was the subject of cyberbulling when the Bears fan page posted a photo of Collins on Monday with the caption: "Like If You Agree the Packers Have The Worst Cheerleaders In The NFL!"The caption itself wasn't the worst part, but some of the comments made by users were clearly insensitive.Once Collins got word of the post, she replied: "Wow. Being bullied via Facebook. I may not look like a super model, but to call me ugly..."Collins even created a YouTube video in which she asked for support in helping remove the photo from the popular social media site. She also urged viewers to assist in her right against cyberbullying.On Thursday afternoon, her request was finally granted. The fan page removed the photo with the following note that read: “The picture of the Green Bay Cheerleader has been removed. For everyone on this page. We do not condone or encourage bullying. We would like to ask that you keep it classy. We understand you are hard core fans, but there's no need for bullying. We apologize for any hard feelings and encourage everyone to keep this page as a fun experience.”The Bears and Packers are known to have one of the most intense rivalries in the NFL, but this incident serves as another example as to how some fans can take their rooting interest a little too far.Via Green Bay Press Gazette
