Aaron Rodgers has sent the internet into a frenzy once again following his latest take on Covid-19 and the vaccine.
The reigning NFL MVP has had his fair share to say about the virus in the past, most recently admitting he "mislead" fans into thinking he was vaccinated when he was actually immunised using his own alternative treatments.
Now the Green Bay Packers quarterback has sent fans into meltdown after delving into his stance even deeper, in particular the various treatments which should be explored outside of the jab.
"I think one of my issues, and I've brought this up so many times, one, they don't talk about the fact that people are getting better using these things. That's fine, you don't want to talk about that," Rodgers told the Pat McAfee Show.
"But how come in a league where we're seeing with 51 guys on the list yesterday, there's still zero conversation, at least publicly, around treatment options for people that test positive.
"I do know, behind the scenes, that there are many teams recommending the same treatments I got for their players."
"I don't understand why we can't talk about treatments, not just with the NFL players but with the rest of the country.
"If you had Delta like I did then there's treatment option that actually help. And if you don't agree with the ones I use well then let's come up with some other ones instead of sticking a person in isolation for 10 days with no one to see and zero treatment options."
It was the comment he made after these statements, though, which really made the interview clip go viral.
"If science can't be questioned, it's not science anymore, it's propaganda," Rodgers added.
"When did science become this blind agreement and then not having any debate over what can actually cure people and work for people? That makes no sense to me."
The 38-year-old has reiterated that he's not an anti-vaxxer or even openly against the jab itself per se, nut instead encourages people to do their own research and follow what's right for their body
"At the core is I that I don't have a problem if somebody's vaccinated," Rodgers said.
"It's your body, your choice. You made a decision and you followed what was in your best interest. And I researched and I have other issues. Talking about my allergies... But I made a decision that was the best interest of my body. And that's what it should be. There should be the freedom to choose what's in your best interest. Not mandates sweeping that disregard that people have pre-existing conditions or compromised immune systems, auto-immune diseases, or allergies to ingredients in the vaccine. That puts you in a whole different category. And that should be okay.
"What I don't understand is vaccinated people blaming unvaccinated people because the vaccine that they took to avoid getting the virus didn't stop them from getting the virus.
"I'm just sharing my opinion. I'm not a doctor, I get it. That's what people hammer me most about. But I consulted with a number of doctors - MD's, naturopaths, homeopathic doctors - and figured out what's best for me. I'm not some uneducated person."
Since being posted on social media, the interview has racked up millions of views with some fans completely agreeing with Rodgers while others slammed him.
Either way, his remarks appear to have struck a cord with people online.
