Shailene Woodley Continues Tirade Against Media In Defense Of Fiancé Aaron Rodgers: ‘Calm the F–k Down’
Shailene Woodley is stepping up for her fiancé Aaron Rodgers after the football player’s statements regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). The Green Bay Packers star tested positive for the test and was revealed to not have been vaccinated despite him revealing he had been “immunized.” Rodgers has blasted criticism against him and claimed the alleged “woke mob” was out to cancel him. Amid all of the controversy, Woodley took to Instagram to slam those trying to “disparage” her significant other.
Shailene Woodley defends her fiancé Aaron Rodgers
The Divergent star is spiraling on social media for the second day in a row. After blasting reports that she had deleted an Instagram Stories post “amid the chaos,” Woodley returned to the digital platform.
“Literally ya’ll need to calm the f— down. This is straight up HILARIOUS,” she posted on Instagram Stories. “News outlets STILL grasping at straws to disparage Aaron. Finding random f—ing men on the streets of LA and saying its him.”
Woodley attached the photos from a Daily Mail article that alleged it was Rodgers. The man was wearing all black, including a mask and shades — making it difficult to see the identity of the person.
“I know Aaron’s body VERY well. First off his feet, ahem and no offense to this rando dude, are a LOT bigger,” she added in the same post.
In a second post, Woodley noted that Rodgers “has the hairiest hands on the f—ing plant” and pointed out that the “home” in the photo “clearly, does not.” The actor also suggested fans “zoom in” on the picture.
Lastly, Woodley said that the main in the photos had a “cute car,” but “Aaron would never drive” something like that.
Shailene Woodley had blasted the media a day before
Woodley had already called out the media in the way they were covering her fiancé Rodgers. Amid the backlash the quarterback was receiving, Woodley made a post on Instagram that many assumed was about her fiancé.
“Venus enters Capricon today; time to raise your standards,” the post’s caption read, with Woodley adding a “yep” at the top.
It wasn’t long before the media picked it up. As that happened, Woodley would later return to blast everyone for “grasping at straws.”
“just read somewhere that the media is claiming I deleted an insta story amid the ‘chaos’. (an astrology post of all things) (not cryptic at all you dummies),” she posted. “do you even know how stories work brah ?? they self delete after 24 hrs. literally lol’ing over here at your determination to make a story out of nothing. grasping at straws my dears.”
Aaron Rodgers defended his comments
After his positive COVID-19 test, Rodgers gave an interview on The Pat McAfee Show where he explained why he hadn’t been vaccinated.
“I’m not an anti-vax, flat-earther. I have an allergy to an ingredient that’s in the mRNA vaccines. I found a long-term immunization protocol to protect myself and I’m very proud of the research that went into that,” he said.
Rodgers also said that he had consulted with podcast host Joe Rogan and had been following his advice. The football player cited ivermectin, which is not approved for COVID-19 treatment.
