Zach Wilson’s mom, Lisa, decried the dangers of social media on Sunday in a lengthy Instagram clip.
In the video that spans nearly 30 minutes, Lisa is seen in a kitchen elaborating on the threat of online predators, detailing how an apparent incident hit close to home.
“I had reached a point in my life that I thought I had mastered parenting,” Lisa captioned the video, later adding, “I thought I had done all the things to teach her to recognize danger. I thought I had blocked her from outside influences and I mean she was my kid, so even if someone got in, she knew what to do. I was wrong. I completely underestimated the degree of evil that was possible, in a little electronic device, I personally placed in my baby girls hand.”
Lisa then expressed gratitude regarding “a mothers intuition,” noting “the outcome could have been much worse.”
“Believe me, I know life is much easier to just look the other way and pretend that you raised them so damn good, you have nothing to worry about. But unfortunately, Satan is smarter than you are,” she continued. “Who’s going to take back the power of your title? You are the parent. You make the rules.”
The video shared on Lisa’s page arrived the same day dating rumors surfaced online allegedly involving her son.
Wilson’s apparent ex, Abbey Gile, was recently linked to Washington Commanders wide receiver Dax Milne, according to the sports site uStadium. Milne is said to have been the BYU product’s college roommate.
Over the weekend, Milne posted a pair of photos on Instagram with a gal pal, whose face was shielded in the photos. He captioned the post, “Word on the street.”
Elsewhere, an Instagram account that featured Gile’s name in the handle accused Wilson of allegedly being involved with a friend of his mother’s, who was never identified. Gile’s Instagram account appears to have been scrubbed as of Monday.
Wilson, who attended a Yankees game in June with influencer Nicolette Dellanno, appeared to purge Gile from his Instagram page earlier this year.
Wilson, the Jets’ second overall pick in 2021, is gearing up for his sophomore season in the league.
As of Monday, Wilson does not appear to have addressed the controversy.
