Aaron Rodgers Wants 'Full Apology' From Wall Street Journal for Reporting on 'COVID Toe'

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Wednesday he wants a “full apology” from the Wall Street Journal for reporting that he has COVID toe.

“I felt good in just a few days and didn’t have any lingering effects, other than the Covid toe,” Rodgers told Pat McAfee during a Tuesday interview on SiriusXM, where he discussed his recent COVID-19 diagnosis. The statement was met with laughter and it was unclear if he was joking, but as the Wall Street Journal pointed out in a piece that outlined his comments, COVID toe is a real condition that can impact those who contract the virus. It can involve swollen, discolored toes.

On Wednesday, Rodgers — who has been in the news lately due to his unvaccinated status — reacted to the report during a press conference, saying, “That’s actually called disinformation, when you perpetuate false information about an individual. I have a fractured toe so I expect a full apology.”

Notably, while demanding the “full apology,” he mentioned journalist Molly Knight by name. She does not work for the Journal and did not write the piece in question. On Wednesday, she issued a statement making those points and thanking Rodgers for directing people to her Twitter feed, where she is in the process of raising money to provide blankets to unhoused individuals in her community.

3. Yet another example why we should never take sports stars seriously when they start talking shit

about stuff other than throwing a football, making a three-pointer or hitting a fastball.

5. Looks like he's the one who brought up covid toe and

now he’s upset the press picked up on it. Really, this guy is a clown and he’s dead to me.

6. Normally I root for the Packers over the Vikings, but after Rodgers' recent Covid garbage, I found

myself cheering when they lost 34-31 last Sunday.

10. He might have meant it as a joke (COVID so funny ya know)

but from his dry emotionless demeanor no one could tell.

12. So for DEFENDING him against the laughing dudes on SiriusXM by saying that COVID toe exists .....

He is going after Wall Street Journal for "believing what he said was true" instead of the dorks who laughed at him.

“I felt good in just a few days and didn’t have any lingering effects, other than the Covid toe,” Rodgers told Pat McAfee during a Tuesday interview on SiriusXM, where he discussed his recent COVID-19 diagnosis. The statement was met with laughter and it was unclear if he was joking, but as the Wall Street Journal pointed out in a piece that outlined his comments, COVID toe is a real condition that can impact those who contract the virus. It can involve swollen, discolored toes.



“That’s actually called disinformation, when you perpetuate false information about an individual. I have a fractured toe so I expect a full apology.”




SO DUMB AS** You DIS-informationed on YOURSELF.

If you BROKE your TOE, then don't call it COVID TOE.

13. Aaron, you are making my fandom harder and harder.

Save yourself....

PS Demanding apologies never works.
What the heck is a “full apology” any way?

15. Aaron Rodgers is showing signs of Covid fog

Not that I ever gave his rambling insights much thought. He is now
a danger to himself, his teammates and anyone who listens to him.

If he wants to get sick fine. Spreading fake news and a real virus is selfish and dangerous.
