Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, has recently expressed support for controversial environmental lawyer and anti-vaccine advocate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as he launches his presidential campaign. Rodgers retweeted Kennedy’s call for support for his campaign, which included a plea for an army that includes Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.
This is not the first time Rodgers has delved into political discourse and culture wars. In the past, he has been criticized for his decision to forgo the coronavirus vaccine, claiming that he was allergic to an ingredient in the vaccine. He also cited Martin Luther King Jr. in his decision to stand up against rules that didn’t make sense to him.
Recently, Rodgers reposted Kennedy’s interview with Aubrey Marcus on his Instagram story, using the hashtags “muscle” and “heart” and adding the phrase “kennedy2024.” These actions suggest that Rodgers is a supporter of Kennedy and his views.
While it is important for individuals to have the freedom to express their political beliefs, it is also important to consider the impact of those beliefs. Kennedy’s anti-vaccine stance goes against the recommendations of public health experts, and his views on environmental policy have been criticized by many. It remains to be seen how Rodgers’ support for Kennedy will affect his reputation and the public’s perception of him.
