Aaron Rogers condemns “cancel culture” and the “woke mob.”
- The star quarterback for the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers, finally broke his silence after it was revealed earlier this week that he tested positive for Covid and has not been vaccinated, according to InfoWars.
- Rodgers had previously told the media he’s “been immunized” against Covid but was criticized by mainstream media who claimed he “lied.”
- Rodgers clarified on The Pat McAfee Show on Friday that he is allergic to an ingredient in the mRNA Covid vaccines and was actually following federal guidelines by foregoing the jab.
“I have an allergy to an ingredient that is in the mRNA vaccines. So, on the CDC’s own website it says, ‘should you have an allergy to any of these ingredients you should not get one of the mRNA vaccines.’ So those two were out already,” Rodgers said. “My only other option was the Johnson & Johnson. At this time, in the early spring, I had heard of multiple people who had adverse side effects around getting the J&J. No deaths or anything, but just some really difficult times.”
“I realize I’m in the crosshairs of the woke mob right now, so before my final nail gets put in my cancel culture casket, I think I’d like to set the record straight on so many of the blatant lies that are out there about myself right now,” he said.
The Packers signal-caller continued, “I’m not an anti-vax, flat-earther. I have an allergy to an ingredient that’s in the mRNA vaccines. I found a long-term immunization protocol to protect myself and I’m very proud of the research that went into that.”
A-Rod even called out the pharmaceutical companies behind the vaccines, noting they’ve been involved in criminal activity as shown in previous fraud cases.
Several sports outlets wondered if Rodgers should be fined or suspended for violating league Covid protocols, but the future Hall of Famer said the NFL was fully aware of his vaccination status.
