Aaron Rodgers has responded to backlash he received after remarks he made about the COVID-19 vaccine.
“There were a ton of people rooting against us because of my vaccination status & them wanting to see us lose so they could pile on.. we knew this was coming down the pipe at some point,” Rodgers said.
“I realize that I’ve been divisive this season by my vaccination status & my willingness to talk about it. I take accountability for that & I never wanted to be a divisive polarizing figure on this.”
In November, Rodgers said one of the side effects of him testing positive for Covid-19 weeks back is “covid toe.”
The Green Bay Packers Quarterback said:
“I’m glad you asked just so I could show you the lesions of my foot here, so if I have enough room on this camera, let me see if I can,” Rodgers per ESPN. “Oh, oh there’s no lesions whatsoever. Oh, what a surprise. No, that’s actually called disinformation when you perpetuate false information about an individual. I have a fractured toe.”
He refuses to be vaccinated.
