Longtime Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has not received the COVID-19 vaccine, and the former MVP has been pretty open about it since it was revealed that he mischaracterized his COVID-19 vaccination status last year. But during a recent interview, Rodgers got a little uncomfortable when questioned about the ramifications of his vaccination decision.
Rodgers appeared on the Barstool Sports Podcast “Pardon My Take” this week, hosted by Dan Katz and Eric Sollenberger, who go by the pseudonyms Big Cat and PFT Commenter, respectively. During the interview, the two hosts asked Rodgers a very blunt question about his decision not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Packers quarterback quickly shut down the question with a response that is not safe for work.

“How many people do you think you killed?” Sollenberger asked Rodgers. “What’s your count?”
“How many grandmothers?” Katz added. “Let’s just do grandmothers.”
“I mean, I know you guys are f***ing around, but I don’t find that part funny,” Rodgers said. “I really don’t.”
Rodgers did not receive the COVID-19 vaccine, instead electing for an “alternative treatment” for the virus in Canada before training camp last season. Rodgers then petitioned the NFL to allow the treatment to count as an approved vaccine, but the league denied his request.
After news broke in November that Rodgers was unvaccinated, the Packers quarterback was reportedly “furious.” Now, he’s still having to answer for that decision.
