Aaron Rodgers Mocked On ‘Saturday Night Live’ For COVID-19 Comments
After testing positive for COVID-19, lying about being immunized and making strange statements regarding his views on the virus, NFL star Aaron Rodgers has now been made a laughing stock by Saturday Night Live.
Rodgers’s controversial appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Friday was the subject of the show’s famous cold open, where Pete Davidson played the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback on a Fox News show hosted by Cecily Strong‘s Jeanine Pirro. “Our first guest is brave enough to say, ‘Screw you, science. I know Joe Rogan,'” Strong said. “Please welcome NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers.”
Then, Davidson, dressed in a blue beanie and a “Say When” t-shirt from the movie Tombstone, immediately segued into a rant on the “woke mob.” “It’s my body and my COVID,” Davidson’s Rodgers said. “I can give it to whoever I want. But suddenly, the woke mob is coming after me.”
In reference to Rodgers’ falsely saying he was “immunized” earlier this season during a press conference, Davidson made a joke regarding Rodger’s way of breaking the news. “I never lied,” Davidson’s Rodgers said. “I took all my teammates into a huddle. Got all their faces three inches away from my wet mouth, and told them, ‘Trust me, I’m more or less immunized.’ Go, team!”
Strong followed up by saying Rodgers’ claim that he avoided the vaccine because it might make him sterile “is so insane, I’m jealous I didn’t say it.” “Hey look, people could talk all they want, but at the end of the day, my record is 7-1,” Davidson’s Rodgers said. “Meaning, of the eight people I infected, seven of them are fine.”
