Things are pretty rough for Aaron Rodgers these days. First, the Green Bay Packers star faced a devastating loss, courtesy of the San Francisco 49ers, on Sunday (Jan. 23rd). Then, the fans attacked him online.

Of course, Rodgers is no stranger to getting the flak on social media. He’s getting massively trolled ever since lying about getting COVID jabs months ago. His stance on corona mandates has brought widespread criticism.

“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,” the NFL quarterback said on the Pat McAfee Show.

“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.”


Rodgers is adamant that he is not going to get vaccinated. His anti-vaccine stance even got the attention of President Joe Biden who, during a visit to Kentucky, asked a Packers fan to “tell that quarterback he’s gotta get the vaccine.”
