Howard Stern Throws Brutal Shade At Aaron Rodgers For Seeking Treatment For His Broken Toe

Radio personality Howard Stern took aim at Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, who had recently sought treatment for his broken toe.

Rodgers said he "was in a lot of pain" during Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings after claiming to be stepped on during the first half.

Stern had no sympathy for the beleaguered NFL star, who faced much scrutiny for lying about getting vaccinated.



In August, Rodgers deceived the public by telling them he was "immunized", but the truth surfaced when he contracted COVID-19.

He was subsequently not eligible to return to the field for a few days, causing him to miss the Packers' loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

An additional criticism hurled at him was for his use of the livestock dewormer drug Ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

Though the drug is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the agency does not authorize Ivermectin for treating or preventing COVID-19, and they criticized widespread misinformation online that led to people injecting themselves with it.



"Now I hear he has a toe injury," said Stern, a vocal critic of anti-vaxxers.

He also had questions for Rodgers, which included asking if he sought help from comedian and podcaster Joe Rogan.

Rodgers was previously slammed for seeking counsel on combating the virus from Rogan, who has no medical background.

"He said he got his information from Joe Rogan," said Stern, adding, "You've got doctors who go to medical school — I don't know what's happened to this country."

Warning: explicit language.





He continued:

"When he had the toe injury – did he go to the doctor or did he go to Joe Rogan?
"Who fixed his toe? I bet you he went to a doctor, so he goes to doctors for everything else, but on the vaccine he's listening to Joe Rogan."






After going off on Rodgers, Stern additionally slammed the NFL for bringing back the controversial player onto the field.

"This f*cking Aaron Rodgers he's a scumbag! Because he lied! Forget about the part that he didn't take the vaccine, he lied to everybody."
"He put people in danger. People have families. He's a f*ckhead and the NFL should be ashamed of themselves."
"If there was decency in this world, I would throw this guy out of the football league so fast."







Stern also gave props to Fox sports analyst and former Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshow for calling out Rodgers on his deception to the public and saying he was "extremely disappointed" in his actions.

"What he did to his fellow teammates — and bravo Terry Bradshaw for what you said and everyone else whose got half a brain in this country — but this f*cking guy, they should throw him out of the league so fast," said Stern.
