Jim Thome's wife Andrea is officially done as a Cleveland Browns fan.

She's asked the Browns to cancel the season tickets that she has with Jim following the Deshaun Watson sign-and-trade. She made the announcement on her Twitter following Watson's press conference last week.

"Very sad after 40 years as a fan, but this is my line in the sand," Andrea tweeted. "I believe women. Especially when there are 22 of them. That press conference did nothing to change my mind."

She later added that she has every right to make the decision after more than 20 female massage therapists said that Watson touched them inappropriately over the last couple of years. "A final word. I never called anyone guilty. 22 accusers. That’s enough for me to make a decision that I have every right to make without being incessantly bullied by keyboard warriors," Andrea tweeted. "I’m stepping away for a week, but I wish you all peace. Grateful for all of the support."

The NFL world is applauding Thome's wife on social media.

Watson is still facing civil lawsuits from the accusers as an NFL investigation is still ongoing.
