On Sunday, the FOX Sports broadcasting crew went completely off on Aaron Rodgers.
Strahan was entirely upset over Rodgers invoking the name of Martin Luther King Jr in an interview with Pat McAfee.
“Another thing I would said, there is a time to quote MLK and this was not one of them as well,” Strahan said. He went on to suggest people aren’t unhappy with Aaron Rodgers because he’s unvaccinated. Rather, they don’t like the way he addressed a question about the vaccine.
“It’s kind of the workaround is what I think bothered people. We understand that you can get COVID even if you’re vaccinated. But when you answer a question and say, ‘Yeah, I’m immunized,’ it’s the workaround.”
As a result of his actions and comments, Prevea Health announced Saturday it is ending its partnership with the Green Bay Packers quarterback. Rodgers, who tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week, had been a spokesman for the health company since 2012.
“Prevea Health remains deeply committed to protecting its patients, staff, providers and communities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic,” the company wrote in a statement. “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.”
