Shailene Woodley drew the ire of football fans after she appeared to drop hints that beau Aaron Rodgers' rift with the Packers was about him feeling disrespected.

The Golden Globe-nominated actress, 29, raised eyebrows as she retweeted a video suggesting Rodgers's resentment toward Green Bay was about them mistreating and disrespecting the quarterback. The video retweeted by Woodley was originally shared by 'First Take' host and ESPN personality Stephen A Smith, the New York Post reported.

The clip, which aired on ESPN Tuesday, saw Smith chime into the news that Rodgers had turned down a two-year extension with Green Bay, albeit the deal would have potentially made him the highest-paid player in the NFL.

“This is proof of what I’ve been talking about for months. It’s not about football. It’s not just about the money,” Smith said. “This is about the way the Green Bay Packers have treated their star player. They have disregarded him, they have dismissed him, they have minimized him, they’ve disrespected him. And he said, ‘Bump y’all, enough is enough.'”



 

Smith said he was disgusted with "all of these NFL aficionados” that “don’t understand” Rodgers’ frustrations, including “people we have here working at [ESPN].” And while Woodley did not add personal commentary to Smith's take, fans believe it's a direct hint that she and Rodgers felt the same way as the sports radio host. What's more? Woodley's mother Lori also appeared to confirm their frustrations as she retweeted the same video with the caption, "Spoken truth."



 

However, Woodley was blasted on social media for trying to be her fiance's "mouthpiece." "Lmao when @shailenewoodley has to be your mouthpiece that’s a bad sign. Come back or don’t, Rodgers, but whatever it’s gonna be say it with your chest," one Twitter user wrote.

"Wow!!! Never thought Rodgers or any of his girlfriends, much less his fiancé, would ever stoop to this level on social media, regardless of the situation. I’ve been such big fans of both of you...but with this, no more. Really sad & not cool you did this," another added.

"Shailene Woodley, Aaron Rodgers' fiance, retweeted this Stephen A Smith video, where he says Rodgers doesn't want to be a part of the Green Bay #Packers. Something tells us Wisconsin doesn't care right now #FearTheDeer," a third chimed in.

"Um…. The first affirmation of his desire to leave Green Bay should probably have come from Rodgers and not his latest lady friend," another wrote.



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

It's unclear whether Rodgers will show up for training in Green Bay, where veteran players are expected to gather for a camp on July 27. The celebrated NFL great broke the news of his engagement with Woodley in February, with Woodley recently revealing how the couple had waited "months and months" before going public.

At the time, E! News reported that Woodley had begun a long-distance romance with Rodgers. "They have kept things private and low key," a source had said. The couple started dating during the Covid-19 pandemic last year. She revealed in her Shape cover story for July/August that being in lockdown with the football star helped them become closer.

However, speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Woodley said she and Rodgers are in no hurry about their wedding plans. “There's no wedding planning happening. There's no rush. We've got no rush,” the 'Big Little Lies' actor said, adding that the couple is just "enjoying" their time together and being engaged.
