Aaron Rodgers has spoken out after The Packers’ shock defeat to The 49ers, and he’s made a pretty bold claim.
The star quarterback claimed that people tuned in to the play-off game purely to root against him because he’s not vaccinated.
Rodgers said on “The Pat McAfee Show”:
“There were a ton of people tuning in rooting against us for one reason and one reason only: It’s because of my vaccination status and them wanting to see us lose so they could pile on and enjoy and revel in the fact that my vaccination status was some sort of reason why we haven’t had success in the playoffs,”
"There were a ton of people tuning in, rooting against us … because of my vaccination status.”

Rodgers famously tested positive for COVID-19 in November avoiding questions about his vaccination status.
