Aaron Rodgers’ torn Achilles tendon wasn’t caused by his refusal to get vaccinated or experimenting with ayahuasca, and according to the injured New York Jets quarterback, anyone believes such nonsense is a “tramp”.
In his first interview since suffering a season-ending injury just four games into his career with the Jets, Rodgers discussed his criticism in the media with ESPN’s Pat McAfee: Conservative Greg Kelly and Liberal Keith Olbermann, both of whom he called “bums.”
Kelly, the son of former New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, theorized earlier this week that Rodgers’ injury was the result of drug use and a lack of Christian faith. the quarterback’s part.
Meanwhile, Olbermann playfully blamed Rodgers’ high-profile refusal to get a COVID-19 vaccine for the injury.
“Go get your fifth call-up, Keith,” Rodgers said of Olbermann before calling the former ESPN and MSNBC host a “bum.”

In his first interview since his injury, Rodgers discussed his criticisms in the media with ESPN’s Pat McAfee: conservative Greg Kelly (left) and liberal Keith Olbermann (right).
Rodgers’ debut with the New York Jets lasted about three minutes before he was sacked and knocked out of Monday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills.
The 39-year-old has since undergone season-ending surgery on his lower leg.
“Another #SuddenLisfranc due to vaccination failure,” Olbermann wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, accompanied by six syringe emojis.
Rodgers makes headlines two years ago, when he said he was “immune,” only to later confirm he was not vaccinated. Instead, Rodgers claimed to have participated in a “vaccination process through a holistic physician.”
The quarterback recently watched Novak Djokovic – another unvaccinated sports star – at the US Open, posting a photo with a Moderna logo crossed out. He also posted a goat emoji with the hashtag: “novaxdjokovic.”
Kelly, for her part, suggested that the real cause of Rodgers’ injury was his penchant for psychedelic drug use and the lack of God in his life.
After claiming he predicted disaster for Rodgers, Kelly also suggested it’s impossible to be an elite and happy quarterback at the same time.
“Did he rupture his Achilles tendon?” asked Kelly. ‘Something like that? I totally saw this coming. I said it out loud, I can prove it to you tomorrow night. I’ll find the tape, it’s somewhere.
Kelly seemed to suggest that the injury was due to Ayahuasca use and lack of church.
Rodgers has only been sacked four times in his career with the Jets and is now out for the season.

“It was going to be a disaster. He lost the eye of the tiger. A competitive quarterback can’t be happy and goofy all the time.
Kelly continued: “Something happened to this guy, and I think I know what it was – DRUGS. He got involved with psychedelics.
“That Ayahuasca tea – something like that that gives you that ‘oh, I love you bro’ kind of mentality. It’s uh… it’s not good.’
After airing part of a podcast in which Rodgers explains the benefits he experienced from taking Ayahuasca, Kelly went on to say that if he wanted to find self-healing and self-love, he should try going to church.
“No matter what he talks about, Ayahuasca tea is a poor substitute for God,” Kelly added.
