Shailene Woodley’s fiancé, Aaron Rodgers — an NFL participant I first realized about when he thanked Jodie Foster in a speech — might be not showing on a soccer discipline anytime quickly as a result of he has COVID-19 and, it seems, can be unvaccinated. Rodgers has discovered himself mired in controversy after his prognosis revealed that, although he informed reporters he was “immunized,” NFL officers (and scientists) don’t take into account the homeopathic therapy he acquired legitimate vaccination. Plenty of followers and fellow athletes are, to place it briefly, pissed, with some even arguing he ought to be kicked out of the NFL for what they see as mendacity about having been vaccinated.
Nicely, Woodley has some phrases for these critics. On Tuesday, she put aside a while to defend her fiancé not towards accusations he lied about being vaccinated however towards … being misidentified by the Daily Mail. In a since-deleted put up, the outlet picked up photographs of a person they thought was Rodgers strolling round in L.A., breaking the quarantine he’s speculated to be beneath. Woodley took this chance to talk publicly for the primary time since Rodgers’s PR fiasco started. As an alternative of addressing the problem head on, she opted to completely demolish the Each day Mail and anybody who believes this man might be her fiancé. She additionally inadvertently managed to demolish … the person himself?
In a particularly thorough collection of Instagram Stories, Woodley wrote, “actually ya’ll must calm the fuck down. that is straight up HILARIOUS. information retailers STILL greedy at straws to disparage aaron. discovering random fucking males on the streets of los angeles and saying it’s him.”
Woodley went on to elucidate intimately precisely why her fiancé is so clearly not this random Angeleno, specifically as a result of he has a nicer (?) automobile, is hairier, and has greater feet, wink wink. She wrote, “i do know aaron’s physique. VERY properly. first off, his ft, ahem and no offense to this random dude, are a LOT greater. ;).”
Okay, however … offense taken??? As if insulting his dick measurement from the leap weren’t brutal sufficient, Woodley addressed this poor man instantly, writing, “cute automobile dude, however aaron would by no means drive this.” She took subject along with his bare fingers too, writing of Rodgers: “it’s no secret he has the hairiest fingers on the fucking planet. this oblivious homie, clearly, doesn’t. (go forward, zoom in.)” “Oblivious homie” is barely nicer than “random dude,” however nonetheless seems like quite a bit for a man whose solely offense is perhaps resembling an NFL participant.
Did Woodley say anything, you ask? Perhaps about, , the entire refusing a scientifically sound vaccine factor? She didn’t. For his half, Rodgers, after briefly flirting with going full-fledged conservative bro in response to all this, mentioned Tuesday he takes “full accountability” for his feedback however didn’t point out whether or not he had determined to get the vaccine. Woodley has not acknowledged whether or not she is vaccinated, so … do with that what you’ll, if you happen to should.
The nameless man, in the meantime, has not made himself identified, and admittedly I don’t blame him. I hope he finds solace in the truth that I’m considering of him, and in addition that he (perhaps) (vaguely) (in a masks) appears like Aaron Rodgers.
