Aaron Rodgers has broken his silence on his vaccination status.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback is out Sunday against the Chiefs after testing positive for coronavirus, and it was also revealed that he’s unvaccinated, despite claiming he was “immunized.”
During a Friday interview with Pat McAfee, Rodgers said he’s in “the crosshairs of the woke mob” and people looking to put the “final nail” in his “cancel culture casket.”
He also called out the “witch hunt” that unfolded in the NFL to find out who was vaccinated and who wasn’t.
Furthermore, he explained he’s allergic to an ingredient in the mRNA vaccines, which are the Moderna and Pfizer options. He’s also listening to Joe Rogan’s advice and taking Ivermectin.

Honestly, good for Aaron Rodgers, and I say that as someone who is vaccinated and believes in the vaccine. Rodgers doesn’t owe anyone answers, and he damn sure doesn’t owe reporters answers on his vaccination status.
While the outrage machine is spinning up, he laid it all out for McAfee and his fans as to why he did what he did.

French President Emmanuel Macron Says Someone Who Refuses COVID Vaccine Is ‘Not a Citizen’
French president Macron’s desire to ‘piss off’ unvaccinated individuals triggers outrage
Macron spoke candidly during an interview with French newspaper Le Parisien, during which he said that he wanted to make life difficult for individuals who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine. The French “sanitary pass” has prompted a number of protests and stiff opposition while the country nears 75% full vaccination.
“I really want to piss them off, and we’ll carry on doing this – to the end,” Macron said three months ahead of a presidential election. “I won’t send [unvaccinated people] to prison, so we need to tell them, from 15 January, you will no longer be able to go to the restaurant. You will no longer be able to go for a coffee, you will no longer be able to go to the theatre. You will no longer be able to go to the cinema.”
The French Parliament heard Macron’s comments during a debate over his proposed bill to tighten restrictions for unvaccinated individuals, leading to a swift and strong uproar in response.
His opponents have labeled the comments “unworthy” of a president.
“Even if one doesn’t share their choice, they have broken none of our country’s laws,” Marine Le Pen, Macron’s chief opponent in the upcoming election, told reporters late Tuesday. “He is continuing his policy of division, of pitting the French against one another.”
She later tweeted “A president shouldn’t say that…Emmanuel Macron is unworthy of his office.”
Leftist politician Jean-Luc Melanchon described the remarks as an “astonishing confession,” according to the BBC.
But Macron’s allies have defended the comments, with Stéphane Séjourné, a member of the European Parliament, arguing on Twitter that unvaccinated individuals have “bothered” the French by “forcing the rest of the population to endure restrictions.”
Debate over Macron’s bill continue into Wednesday as opponents still seek to delay its passage. Some of his supporters claimed to have received death threats because they are backing the legislation, The New York Times reported.
