GREEN BAY, Wis. -- One Green Bay Packers cheerleader has decided to take a stand against online bullying.
Kaitlyn Collins noticed that a picture of her was posted to a Chicago Bears Fan page on Facebook earlier this week with a caption of: "Like if You Agree The Packers Have the Worst Cheerleaders in the NFL!"
It got plenty of reaction, reaching 3,500 likes and 600-plus comments.
According to 620WTMJ.com in Milwaukee, comments included, "Doesn't get uglier" and "Truly an eyesore," along with other vulgarity.
That's when Collins posted a video about it and asked Facebook to take down the post.
Though it took a while, the photo was removed Thursday afternoon with the following message:
"We understand that 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. Go Bears!"
Newly retired Packers receiver and offensive lineman T.J. Lang both posted re-tweets on their personal Twitter pages in support of Collins.
Unlike most NFL teams, the Packers don't have their own cheerleading squad, but they do allow cheerleaders from two area colleges to wear Packers gear and play the role during the game.

It’s been a tough year for Bears fans. Their team failed to make the playoffs AND they lost their coach. So in typical, classy Bears fan fashion, they took their aggression out on the person who REALLY deserved it. A former cheerleader for the Green Bay Packers.
Someone put up a picture of Kaitlyn Collins on a Bears Facebook fan page and decided to diss her looks. And of course...
Since free agency became the norm in the NFL there has been one thing that has been slowly dying out--team longevity. Fewer and fewer players are staying with one team opting to head for greener pastures (more money), but not necessarily a better team.
