Aaron Rodgers Apologizes To Ex-Fiancee Shailene Woodley For COVID Vaccine Scandal

NFL star Aaron Rodgers apologized on Pat McAfee's SiriusXM Radio show to his ex-fiancé, Shailene Woodley, for his comments about COVID-19.

"One thing that I am sad about and definitely apologetic is I didn't realize in the midst of the COVID conversations how much my situation was affecting my loved ones and my people," Rodgers said. "I didn't realize the kind of shrapnel that was being flaked off of what I felt like were the bullets coming at me because I was too locked in on me and defending myself and trying to get a message out."

"I never wanted to be divisive in this whole thing, I really didn't," he continued. "The issue is polarizing, I get that and I know there's a lot of fear involved around that, but my intention was never to be divisive."

Rodgers claimed that he was allergic to the vaccines but said that he was immune to the virus.

"I am very sorry to those people, Shai and my loved ones. I didn't realize the kind of shrapnel they'd be taking…Understanding kind of the entire gravity of the situation I was thrust into and decided to speak on multiple times had an effect on a lot of people. To those people, I just say I'm sorry."

Recent reports say the actress has left the Green Bay Packers quarterback.
