Aaron Rodgers endured massive trolling on the Internet by angry fans who were shocked after the NFL revealed the Green Bay Packers star quarterback was unvaccinated. A couple of months ago Rodgers had claimed he was 'immunized' when reporters asked about his vaccination status. He revealed his choice to not get the shot was because he was allergic to an ingredient in the mRNA vaccines, he didn't specify which ingredient. Along with netizens, Hollywood stars too have expressed their thoughts about Rodgers contracting Covid-19 after claiming he was immunized against the virus.

Terry Bradshaw, Mike Fisher, Stephen King, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar expressed their views and so did outspoken late-night TV show host Jimmy Kimmel who called Rodgers a 'Karen'. Howard Stern too spoke about this on his morning radio show saying "if there was any decency in the world," Rodgers would be shown the door. "I was so worked up over the weekend about this f**king Aaron Rodgers of the NFL," he began. "If there was decency in this world, you know, I would throw this guy out of the football league so fast. What he did to his fellow teammates… this f***ing guy, they should throw him out of the league so fast," Stern fumed and a certain section on the Internet share the same thoughts regarding Rodgers' ouster.

Will the NFL fire Aaron Rodgers?

While the NFL and its franchises require all employees who come in contact with players to be fully vaccinated, a USA Today Sports report said that players and coaches are not subject to any mandates because of labor concerns. However, all players and staff both vaccinated and unvaccinated are regularly tested as per NFL's Covid-19 health and safety protocols. Unvaccinated players are required to be tested daily as opposed to weekly tests required for vaccinated players who could ask for increased testing if they wish to. 

When it comes to Rodgers, he is likely to face fines but he won't be fired over his vaccination status. However, the Internet wants him out for putting others at risk. Rodgers was also spotted outside on a coffee run in San Francisco on November 8 instead of self-isolating for 10 days, further inciting anger amongst netizens. "It's all there in black and white I'm f-ing sick of it! Fire lying Aaron Rodgers yesterday!" a user tweeted. "Aaron Rodgers’ LIED & should be treated as a LIAR. He is no different or better than anyone else bc he plays football. He put EVERY. SINGLE. PERSON. he came in contact w in danger. FIRE. HIM. NOW." tweeted another. "After what aaron Rodgers did he shouldn't even be on the team anymore they should fire him. What a dangerous thing to have someone on the packers team with covid and lie about it. Disgusting," a third tweeted. "I'm thinking the Green Bay Packers should fire Aaron Rodgers and hire Big Bird as their QB Big Bird is obviously the better "critical thinker" #GetVaccinated #BigBirdForSenate" quipped another. "@AaronRodgers12 should’ve been said IN THEE BEGINNING!But you skipped protocols THAT PROTECT OTHERS & THEIR SMALL CHILDREN!This is COMPLETELY UNFORGIVABLE! #CHILDREN! #CancerPatients #CancerSurvivors@NFL, he ENDANGERED people that live check 2 check! @NFL, fire him!" read another tweet.
