Prevea Health dropped their sponsorship of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers over his vaccination status, officially kicking off the coming cancel campaign against the star athlete.
“Prevea Health remains deeply committed to protecting its patients, staff, providers and communities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic,” Prevea said in a statement released Saturday. “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.”
Prevea’s cancelation of Aaron Rodgers comes after his refusal of the coronavirus vaccine became public knowledge, a decision that he did not regret and doubled down on during an interview on the Pat McAfee Show.
“They’re trying to shame and out and cancel all of us not vaccinated people, call us selfish. I mean, that’s the propaganda line, too, that you’re selfish for making a decision that’s in the best interest of your body,” he said.
“That this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated is a total lie,” he exclaimed.
Rodgers further blasted the media for lying about his personal health decisions.
“To just say that [the vaccines are] a blanket for all that ails you, in my opinion, is wrong and reckless. And for the media out there taking shots at me, if you don’t know my story, well, now you do” he exclaimed. “So, quit lying about me, and personal health decisions, in my opinion, should be private.”
