Aaron Rodgers faces major backlash after his decision not to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and his comments about the situation have left many people wondering how his fiancée, Divergent actress Shailene Woodley, feels about the scandal. Known for her interesting take on modern medicine, Woodley shares a few “cryptic” posts on her Instagram story after Rodgers’ controversial interview, one that read, “Calm seas can bring you peace, but storms are where you put your mind to.” power” and another about the expectations different zodiac signs place on their partner. Both posts have been deleted, leading some sources to believe there could be trouble for the engaged couple.
However, Woodley went straight into the rumors on her Instagram story on Saturday. “I just read somewhere that the media is claiming that I deleted an insta story amid the ‘chaos’,” she wrote. (An astrological post of all things) (not cryptic at all you dummies). Do you know how stories work, brah?? They delete themselves after 24 hours. Literally lol’d here at your determination to make it a story nothing Grabbing at straws my love…”
Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Green Bay Packers quarterback has been reported to be unvaccinated, but he was given some sort of alternative treatment. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Rodgers has petitioned the NFL for the alternative treatment so that he can be considered as having received one of the approved vaccines. After a back-and-forth fight, the NFL has determined that Rodgers has not been vaccinated.
Demovsky also said Rodgers follows masking protocols while talking to players and coaching at the teams headquarters. However, when Rodgers speaks to the media at weekly and post-game news conferences, he doesn’t wear a mask. When speaking to the media about being vaccinated, Rodgers said he had been “immunized.”
“You know, there’s a lot of talk about it, in the league, and a lot of guys who have made statements and not made statements, owners who have made statements,” Rodgers said at the time. “There are guys on the team who haven’t been vaccinated. I think it’s a personal decision. I’m not going to judge those guys. There are guys who have been vaccinated and got COVID. It’s an interesting problem I think we’re going to played out all season.”
“I think I like learning about everything I do, and there’s even a lot of research into it,” Rodgers continued. “But like I said, there are people who have tested positive, and I think it’s only vaccinated people here. It’s going to be interesting to see how things go. Obviously, there can be problems with vaccinated people who testing only every few weeks and then unvaccinated testing every day.”
