Last week, we reported that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was being targeted by cancel culture over his vaccine status after he tested positive for COVID-19. While most celebrities quickly turned their backs on Aaron Rodgers, former NHL star Mike Fisher, who is married to country music icon Carrie Underwood, came to his defense.

Carrie Underwood doesn’t get political often but the ‘Before He Cheats’ singer was targeted by cancel culture before they set their sights on Aaron Rodgers. That might explain why her doting NHL husband was one of the first to stand by Rodgers.

Carrie Underwood’s Husband Mike Fisher: ‘I Stand With Aaron Rodgers’

“I stand with Aaron Rodgers,” Carrie Underwood’s husband wrote in an Instagram post.

“I believe in the freedom to choose what we put in our bodies and the freedom of conscience. I agree with him in that the science clearly shows the vaccinated spread covid at basically the same rate as the unvaccinated,” added Fisher, who played for the Ottawa Senators and Nashville Predators from 1999 until 2018. 

“The @nhl @nfl and other leagues are ignoring the science and choosing to coerce and punish unvaccinated players with these restrictions,” he continued. “If they really cared about people’s health they would have daily testing for all. But these past 2 years has clearly shown us that this is not about our health, it’s about control over our lives. I won’t stand for that.”

“It’s time to fight for our medical freedom and I feel for those that have been fired for choosing medical freedom. People losing their jobs over a medical choice is un-American and unacceptable,” Fisher concluded. “We need to stand up now before it’s too late!!”

This comes after, much like Aaron Rodgers, Carrie Underwood herself was targeted by cancel culture for “liking” a tweet opposing school mask mandates.

His Side Of The Story

Amid the resounding backlash, Rodgers went public with his reason for not being vaccinated. 

“Some of the rules, to me, are not based in science at all. They’re purely trying to out and shame people, like needing to wear a mask at a podium when every person in the room is vaccinated and wearing a mask — makes no sense to me,” Rodgers said last week, according to Fox News. “If you got vaccinated to protect yourself from a virus I don’t have as an unvaccinated individual, then why are you worried about anything I could give you?

“I have followed every single protocol to a tee, minus the one I just mentioned because it actually makes no sense to me,” he added. “My daily routine is the routine of an unvaccinated person.”

The NFL MVP claims he took great time and care in researching and making his vaccine decision under the direct supervision of his medical team.

But the medical advice of Rodgers’ doctors is unpersuasive in the court of public opinion.

State Farm Stands By Aaron Rodgers

State Farm, a company that Packer quarterback is a spokesperson for, has also refused to abandon him.

“Aaron Rodgers has been a great ambassador for our company for much of the past decade,” a State Farm spokeswoman told USA Today yesterday. 

“We don’t support some of the statements that he has made, but we respect his right to have his own personal point of view,” she added. “We recognize our customers, employees, agents and brand ambassadors come from all walks of life, with differing viewpoints on many issues. Our mission at State Farm is to support safer, stronger communities. To that end, we encourage vaccinations, but respect everyone’s right to make a choice based on their personal circumstances.”

Once upon a time, it was acceptable to form your own opinion here in America, ‘The Land Of The Free’. These days, however, personal freedom is not in vogue.

The Green Bay quarterback says he has a vaccine allergy. He also says the NFL accepted his immunization protocol. So who are the media and public to play judge and jury?

Athletes turned talking heads like Terry Bradshaw and Kareem Abdul Jabar rushed to attack him. They no longer play yet they think they know better than Rodgers and his doctors.

Retired NHL star Mike Fisher and State Farm are certainly in the minority for sticking their necks out to stand by Aaron Rodgers.
