December 19, 2015

Ellie Day is standing by her man.

After suffering a concussion and being carted off the court, Ellie was dismayed by the wave of criticism thrown at Jason for not doing more to protect his wife from the collision.

She took to Twitter to silence the haters, saying in part, “To the crazies that think Jason should have protected me — if he had had time to react, so would have I. Also, I would have not liked both dudes landing on me.”
