Urban Meyer’s wife, Shelley, released a statement on Thursday in response to the video of her husband grinding on a woman at his restaurant in Ohio saying, “We all make mistakes-we are all sinners” and “If you think you’re aren’t? Then cast the first stone.” From NBC News:
In a statement shared on Twitter, Shelley Meyer thanked her followers who supported her, but added the post would be her last on the social media platform because of the “hate, vitriol, slander, trash” that was directed toward her.
“We all make mistakes-we are all sinners,” she wrote. “If you think you aren’t? Then cast the first stone.”
And then she nuked her account with this last tweet:

The woman in the video, identified as 24-year-old Cayman Nebraska, now faces an investigation by her employer regarding what went down:

From USA Today:
“(She) can’t even go anywhere,” the mother told USA TODAY Sports. “It’s ruining her life is what it’s doing. I’m worried for her emotional status right now.”
USA TODAY Sports is not identifying the woman or her mother because they have been the subject of backlash despite not having made any public statements yet.
New Horizon Media Group, a marketing company where the woman works, said Thursday it is conducting an internal investigation into the incident that took place Friday.
There are also unconfirmed reports on Twitter suggesting the two might have met before:
