#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is unvaccinated, per me and @MikeGarafolo. That’s why he’s out for Sunday vs. the #Chiefs.

During an incredible interview with Pat McAfee, the NFL star revealed his reasons for being unvaccinated, ripped the league’s protocols, talked about taking advice from Joe Rogan, taking Ivermectin and much more.
Well, it appears that his interview with McAfee has now cost him a major endorsement deal. Prevea Health announced the mutual split Saturday and said in part, “Prevea Health remains deeply committed to protecting its patients, staff, providers and communities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes encouraging and helping all eligible populations to become vaccinated against COVID-19 to prevent the virus from further significantly impacting lives and livelihoods.”

It was only a matter of time before Rodgers lost himself sponsorships and endorsement deals after his interview with McAfee.
Aaron Rodgers says he’s listening to Joe Rogan’s advice on how to battle COVID-19 and he’s also taking Ivermectin.

Mike Florio over at ProFootballTalk literally tweeted after the McAfee interview what “State Farm thinks” of the situation.
So, let’s not pretend like people aren’t hunting for Rodgers money after he declared himself unvaccinated and expressed skepticism to the situation as a whole.
I wonder what State Farm thinks of the Aaron Rodgers interview?

We’ll see if any other companies pull the plug on having a relationship with Rodgers, but something tells me this situation is far from over. Rodgers is dug in and he is taking a firm stand for his believes.
