New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had lots to say about the COVID-19 vaccine. In fact, Rodgers called Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce “Mr. Pfizer” for making commercials promoting the new vaccines.

While Kelce took the comment from Rodgers in stride, one prominent person clapped back at the four-time NFL MVP.

Former U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams called out Rodgers on his snide remark. In a now-deleted post, Adams wrote: “Player A: Takes unregulated psychedelics, out for season,”“Player B: Takes FDA approves vaccine, dominant on field, team winning, dating T Swift [sic] I’m no football expert any more than Aaron Rodgers is a doctor, but seems player B is ‘winning’,’ no?”

Adams, who served as surgeon general under Donald Trump, made another post about Rodgers, and this time, he didn’t delete it.

“If you’re out for the season after making a number of well-publicized and questionable choices about your own health, seems prudent not to criticize another player who is faring quite well with his health choices (including being vaccinated), no?”

Rodgers, who has yet to respond, is no fan of either current president Joe Biden or Trump and in fact supports another anti-vaxxer for president, Robert Kennedy Jr.
