Howard Stern has been an advocate for the COVID-19 vaccines since they were approved. Today on his SiriuxXM show, the radio legend let loose a tirade about Aaron Rodgers and his anti-vaccination beliefs. Stern lambasted Rodgers for his anti-vaccine stance.

Howard also ripped the quarterback for taking medical advice from Joe Rogan. He said that if Rodgers wanted to ignore actual medical experts in lieu of a podcaster, he should have to live up to his belief system. Stern thinks Rodgers’ attitude reflects a larger problem in the United States.

“Aaron Rodgers? Come on, dude, really. That whole bullsh*t game… ‘Yeah, I have the antibodies,’ at the press conference. He got his information from Joe Rogan… You got doctors who study in medical school. I don’t know what has happened to this country.”

Stern said that if Rodgers believes in Joe Rogan over doctors, he should go to Rogan for treatment when he’s injured on the field. Of course, that would never happen, because it doesn’t make any sense. Just like Rodgers taking medical advice from a UFC announcer instead of medical professionals in the first place.

“Next time Aaron Rogers gets injured on the field he should call in Joe Rogan to treat him.”

Many fans on Twitter supported that proposition. Others responded with the sentiment that Stern is just jealous of Rogan’s success. Sterns words sparked a lot of extremely heated discussion. Howard also recently blasted Kyrie Irving for his anti-vaccine beliefs.
