Some NFL fans thought there was a conspiracy on Tuesday to silence Aaron Rodgers during The Pat McAfee Show. Rodgers was a guest on the show and was answered a jestful question by McAfee.
McAfee asked the New York Jets quarterback what his Halloween costume was this year and made a reference to wearing a vaccine costume. The politically outspoken quarterback made a joke that he wore a “spike protein” costume. (The famous spike protein that allowed COVID-19 to enter cells.)
However, some viewers watching the broadcast saw the feed go down after Rodgers’ comment. And a rumor spread around social media that ESPN cut the comments due to the vaccine controversy. (Rodgers has made comments that ally with anti-vaxxers in the past.)
NFL fans react to the feed going out on Rodgers
The broadcast issue had nothing to do with ESPN. Many viewers said they were able to see the interview just fine. However, some fans thought there was a conspiracy about why the broadcast cut out when the vaccine talk was on.
Here are the best takes on X about Rodgers’ feed being lost when he talked about Vaccines.
This didn't happen lol just was a bad feed someone recorded. It aired as normal on other feeds / services.

Why Pat Mcafee shouldn’t have sold out to ESPN and should’ve done his own thing
