Old man Keith Olbermann is back at it again, this time taking aim at New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers following his Monday night injury.

Olbermann mocked Rodgers, who suffered a season-ending injury in the Jets home opener, tweeting that his ruptured Achilles was due to “a failure to vaccinate.”

Immediately following Rodger’s departure, Olbermann tweeted “Another #SuddenLisfranc due to failure to vaccinate” with several vaccine emojis.

The thrice-fired former ESPN and MSNBC host was likely referring to Rodgers’ “immunized” saga where, following a positive Covid-19 test, he disclosed to the public his decision not to take the vaccine.

Rodgers said he has an allergy to an ingredient in the mRNA shot and opted to get a holistic treatment when he was infected with the virus, The New York Post reported.

Truthfully, Keith Olbermann disgusts me in general, but celebrating a potentially career-ending injury because you disagree with somebody’s political beliefs? It doesn’t get much lower than that.

He didn’t stop dancing on Rodgers’ grave after the first tweet either. Olbermann, the man who shouts at cloud meme personified, continued to pile on, sarcastically calling a post celebrating Rodgers’ patriotic MetLife entrance “The. Tweet. Of. The. Night.”

His original attack on Rodgers was heavily ratioed, receiving 4,743 replies to only 1,959 likes at the time of publication. The vast majority of the replies were critical, calling into question Olbermann’s ethics, sanity, general likability and ability to do his job well.

“Wow. What a piece of shit you are. I bet you are a very VERY lonely man,” replied political commentator Niko House.

Olbermann’s long list of career accomplishments includes the time he was suspended for calling Penn State students raising money for cancer “pitiful.” There’s also the time he was fired from ESPN. Oh and the other time he was fired from ESPN. Even MSNBC, the bastion of liberal politics, couldn’t justify keeping on the old windbag.

Add to that list now the miserable celebration of a sporting icon that makes millions of people happy likely losing his passion and his career. Great job Keith, you really stuck it to him!
