CELEBRITY Covid-19

As the world weathers this crisis together and people are reaching out to comfort, inform, and support each other, many celebrities are failing to strike an empathic chord with their followers. Plenty of publications are even claiming that their responses to coronavirus will be the demise of celebrity culture, as many of the rich and famous are making it difficult to idolize them.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers just can't seem to stay out of trouble recently. The football star has continuously made headlines in recent months for his comments about covid-19, the vaccine, and the NFL's pandemic mandates for their players. He tested positive for the virus early in November and appeared on 'The Pat McAfee Show' on November 23. Rodgers said that he had no lingering symptoms except for "covid toe." Viewers were divided on whether this was a joke or a real symptom that Rodgers claimed to have. There are no toe-related ailments listed as officially recognized side effects of covid-19, but the American Academy of Dermatology noted the possibility of "blisters, itch or pain" in that area. 

Rodgers was quick to clarify that he was not suffering from any condition called "covid toe." He addressed the confusion at a press conference and decided to put his bare foot on the table in front of the cameras so everyone could clearly see that his toes were just fine!
