‘I Didn’t Bow Down’: Aaron Rodgers Slams Journalists Who He Says Are Still Upset He Didn’t Take COVID Jab

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers hit back at journalists who he said are still upset he didn’t take the COVID-19 vaccine.

During Rodgers’ latest appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show,” the host asked Rodgers about sports journalists calling him out for taking up a roster spot on the team rather than being placed on the injured reserve list [IR] after he tore his Achilles tendon in the first game of the season.

“The same people who are criticizing me or coming up with these conspiracies about my injury, before they talk, let’s go back to 2021 and let’s make people say their vax status to start,” Rodgers said, adding that it “would frame all these comments in the right window.”

“Let’s have them say, ‘Hey, I’m so-and-so, double vaxxed with Pfizer and triple boosted. And my opinion about this is this guy’s a bad guy because he just wanted to practice and took money away,'” he added. “Then at least you’d know, and everybody could know at that point that they have their puppet masters who are puppeteering them to say this certain thing about this guy and that they’re still upset about the fact that I believe in medical freedom.”

Rodgers said these journalists are “still mad I’m COVID MVP. Not just the two MVPs that I won because I didn’t bow down to the medical industrial complex and the mass formation psychosis and I decided to make a decision that was in the best interest of my health.”

“They’re still trying to get their jabs in,” he added. “They’re still trying to take a victory lap you know that somehow I couldn’t beat science this time. Take it easy on the victory laps and have another jab while you’re at it.”

Rodgers ended up returning to the practice field in December. He previously talked about the “newer, innovative” surgery he had undergone in hopes of returning faster and his hopes of coming back to play this season, but in the end, he didn’t make it.

Rodgers made headlines in 2021 when he was accused of misleading comments about his vaccination status, saying he was “immunized.” However, it was later revealed that he had not been vaccinated.
