Tony Romo was criticized on social media Sunday after seemingly defending Aaron Rodgers over the fallout from his vaccine status during CBS’ broadcast of the Green Bay PackersSeattle Seahawks game. 

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback applauded Rodgers for taking “responsibility” over “misleading” fans about his vaccine status when he told reporters in August that he had been “immunized” against COVID-19.

Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month and would miss 10 days as a result of not being vaccinated. During an initial appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” he said he “didn’t lie in the initial press conference” and had been researching homeopathic alternatives to the vaccine. In a subsequent interview, he apologized for “misleading” people. 

“I just wanted to start out the show by acknowledging that I made some comments that people might have felt were misleading. To anybody that felt misled by those comments, I take full responsibility for those comments.”

But viewers weren’t pleased with Romo’s comments and took to social media to express that.

Rodgers returned in Week 10 for a 17-0 win over the Seahawks. After the game, he said he was thankful for the support he received during his absence.
