  • Aaron Rodgers said people tuned into the Packers-49ers game Saturday to root against him.

  • He said many people rooted against his team "because of my vaccination status."

  • Rodgers caught COVID-19 in November after months of not saying whether he had been vaccinated.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on "The Pat McAfee Show" Tuesday that "tons of people" tuned into the Packers-49ers game on Saturday to root against him and his team because he was not vaccinated against COVID-19.

"There were a ton of people tuning in rooting against us for one reason and one reason only: It's because of my vaccination status and them wanting to see us lose so they could pile on and enjoy and revel in the fact that my vaccination status was some sort of reason why we haven't had success in the playoffs," Rodgers said.

The Green Bay Packers lost in the game against the San Francisco 49ers and were knocked out of the playoffs.

Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 in November after months of dodging the question of whether he had been vaccinated.

The quarterback had previously said he was "immunized" against the virus, and before his diagnosis, Rodgers had petitioned the NFL to allow an alternative treatment to count as being vaccinated.
