Packers QB, Aaron Rodgers, who has so much reactions due to his COVID-19 vaccination status, recently shut down an insensitive joke about the vaccines and death associated with the deadly Virus.
Rodgers featured on Monday’s episode of Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take,”. Although, he was having a good time with the hosts, Big Cat and PFT Commenter, things took a different turn when the jokes moved to coronavirus-related deaths.
PFT quipped as Rodgers was discussing about the blowback he faced for going public with his vaccination position last year “How many people do you believe you killed? What’s your count?”. Big Cat added on, “How many grandmothers? Let’s just do grandmothers.”
Rodgers, who had been in a cheerful mood during the interview, stated sharply, “I mean, I know you guys are f***ing around, but I don’t find that part funny”. “I really don’t,” he continued.
The three quickly shifted topics, and the guys continued to laugh and joke with each other for the next half hour on the broadcast. There didn’t seem to be any more uncomfortable moments amongst the boys, and they all snapped a photo together after the interview.
Throughout last year, the 38-year-old has been open to discussing his ideas on COVID and vaccinations, and has stated that while he is not anti-vax, he does not believe that anybody should be compelled to receive the shots.
