Travis Kelce seemingly didn't have any issues with Aaron Rodgers calling him Mr. Pfizer, describing the New York Jets quarterback's comment as "pretty good." After the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Jets 23-20 at MetLife Stadium on Sunday Night Football but Kelce didn't score a touchdown or have a big night, Rodgers said the Jets were able to "limit Mr.
Pfizer." For the context, Rodgers' vaccine stance is well-documented while Kelce appeared in Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine ads. “Mr. Pfizer, we kinda shut him down a little bit. He didn’t have his crazy impact game, obviously, he didn’t have his yards and stuff," Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show after the Jets and Chiefs game.
Kelce responds to Rodgers' jab
“I thought it was pretty good. I mean, with the ‘stache right now, I look like a guy named Mr. Pfizer. Who knew I’d get into the vaxx war with Aaron Rodgers, man? Mr. Pfizer vs. the Johnson & Johnson family over there, man," Kelce said.
Prior to the start of the 2021 season, Rodgers misled the public and media when he said: "I have been immunized." After it was revealed that Rodgers wasn't vaccinated for COVID-19, he faced backlash and criticism.
Meanwhile, Kelce has no regrets over his own decision to get vaccinated. “I mean, I’ve always been, you know — once I got the vaccine, I mean — I got it before of keeping myself safe, keeping my family safe, the people in this building.
So, yeah, I stand by it. 1000 percent. And fully comfortable with him calling me Mr. Pfizer," Kelce said of his decision to take the vaccine. Before the Jets and Chiefs game, Kelce and Rodgers were spotted chatting a bit on the sideline. “I think some things need to be left on the field.
It’s a better story, probably, left up to the imagination. I saw some different things on speculation about what we were talking about. But I’ve known him for a long time, it was just a quick chat," Rodgers said when asked to reveal details about his conversation with Kelce.
