Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Calls Out ‘Woke Cancel Culture’: ‘I Like To Speak The Truth’

By Movieguide® Staff

Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers said that he disagrees with “woke cancel culture.”

The veteran NFL quarterback and Super Bowl champion expressed his view on the current “cancel culture” on THE PAT MCAFEE SHOW.

“There’s a PC woke culture that exists, and there’s a cancel culture at the same time,” Rodgers said. “And it’s based on people’s own feelings of maybe personal miserability or distaste for their own situations or life, or maybe just enjoyment of holding other people down underneath their thumb.”

The QB came under fire after a recent win against the Chicago Bears.

“Look, I think that’s to say … Are we getting that soft in society where we can’t have words now?” Rodgers questioned after people called out his “trash talk” directed at Bears fans.

“Somebody can pay for a ticket and say whatever the h*ll they want — which I think they should be able to, that’s fine — but the one time you say something back to them and it gets caught on a hot mic … now I’ve disrespected an entire city and organization and my own organization?” he added. “I also exist outside of that in a different realm where I do feel confident in things I say and I do stand by what I do. I like to speak the truth and I’m not part of this woke cancel culture that gets off on trying to silence people all the time.”

Green Bay is currently sitting atop the NFC North rankings with a record of 6-1.
