An Ohio woman posted a charming video of her husband joyously losing his mind over the Browns trading for Odell Beckham Jr. And the internet did what it seems to do best: ruin the moment.

On Tuesday, Twitter user Kelcie Lee ( @kelccc_01 ) posted the video, which shows her husband, in a Browns shirt, hooting and hollering as he learned that the Browns traded for the star wide receiver.

Shortly after, the candid reaction video was tweeted out by Sports Illustrated and ESPN , among others, then re-tweeted by OBJ himself.

"Online, at first…everything was real positive," Lee said in an interview with News 5. "There was a lot of encouragement, and a whole bunch of Browns fans were saying, you know, ‘We had the same reaction,’ and ‘This was our house,’ and stuff like that. It was very encouraging. But then once ESPN and SportsCenter and Sports Illustrated, once they shared it, that’s when all of the trolling began. "

Lee said the comments that hit her hardest were about her 2-year-old son.

On Thursday, Lee came out with a statement on Facebook that she also tweeted, clearly downtrodden by the internet trolls who chose to question, mock, insult, and deride her and her husband:

“We have been told that we are inbred, our child is inbred, my house would look better with different lighting, THOUSANDS of comments saying that it was staged, jokes about Eric’s receding hairline, my voice, the way I say words, have been called losers, fakes, liars, dumb, idiots, racists, etc.

“Comments about me divorcing him, him divorcing me.

“This was just a harmless video I took of eric. If ANYONE knows eric, they know this is pure

“And if you know US, you know we are constantly video taping eachother being crazy.

“INTERNET TROLLS ARE REAL AND I HOPE MY CHILD NEVER HAS TO DEAL WITH THIS IN HIS FUTURE!!”

While the majority of comments on the various tweets with the video appear positive and supportive, several of the comments are as Lee describes.

Lee has even pinned a tweet to her profile responding to various commenters accusing her of staging the reaction:

News 5 looks forward to your civilized, level-headed comments in response to this story.
