Aaron Rodgers Offends Entire City of Chicago

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.

-Aaron Rodgers

People are starting to grow sick and tired of cancel culture, and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is no exception. After scoring a six-yard touchdown that secured the victory for the Packers, Rodgers could be hear saying, “All my fucking life, I own you. I still own you.” What he believed to be friendly trash talk that often results from competitive play turned out to be extremely offensive to residents of Chicago. A former player for the Bears, Olin Kreutz, even stated that he would like to “punch [Rodgers] in the face,” over the comments.


Rodgers explained that he remembered that he was welcomed into the end zone with a Chicago Bears fan flipping him the double bird from the stands. He never expected his response to be considered to be so controversial, especially given that trash talk between players and fans has occurred every week since he has played in the NFL.


While Rodgers is under no real threat of being cancelled, he used the opportunity to speak out against the absurdity currently occurring across the country. He recognizes cancel culture as a group of people who get their kicks from shrinking others and keeping them small through cancellation or demeaning comments. He said that he will not let woke cancel culture stop him from being who he is both on and off the field.


People are absolutely bored when we’re attacking a man for celebrating success in his craft. Aaron Rodgers did nothing more than respond to a fan’s trash talk with more trash talk. If fans are permitted to enter the stadium and say whatever they want to the players, players should be allotted the same opportunity to respond. Rodgers suggests that people have gotten soft, but I disagree; people have created business models off of being offended. The more offended someone is, the more virtuous they appear.


Being offended, especially over nothing, certainly does not signal you’re a better person than those who don’t get offended. Frequently getting offended suggests that you’re weak and maybe not cut out for the real world, which is filled with people who will disagree with you. Instead of adjusting, you expect the world to make changes to become a more comfortable place for you to live. The world is not a comfortable place, however, nor is it fair. The world does not revolve around any of us, yet we act as if it revolves around the majority. How can you expect others to respect your feelings, when you can’t respect our freedom?
