Fear not coronabros, theres’s still plenty of content floating around to enable you to keep your Karen status for at least a bit longer. Following Green Bay’s win over Cleveland on Saturday evening, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and FOX sideline reporter Erin Andrews broke the social distance barrier and engaged in a…hug!
The nerve of those two! And they did all this without wearing a mask or presenting one another with a negative COVID test. Is there a punishment worthy of such disrespect towards a virus that’s causing some of those affected to sniff, cough and sneeze? Maybe jail time, a hefty fine, lose of job, beheading?!?!

In a scene that would have Dr. Fauci reaching for a glass of scotch (alone in his home, of course), Andrews conducted a socially distanced outdoor interview with Rodgers on the Lambeau Field turf. Upon ending the interview, Rodgers and Andrews slapped hands, then hugged, before going their separate ways.
The QB-reporter embrace lasted less than two seconds. Just enough time to, predictably, spark anger amongst the COVID-crazies.
Aaron Rodgers hugging Erin Andrews in these times lmao?

Aaron Rodgers’ non-vaccinated ass went to hug Erin Andrews after the game and she was NOT about it. Half hug, head way to the side. Doing everything she can to avoid getting COVID right before Christmas. The world is scary right now and it’s all too familiar

Rodgers and Andrews aren’t the first, they’re just the latest examples of players and media members around the league who aren’t buying into the NFL’s cosmetic theatre that surrounds the league’s post-game interview protocols.
