Howard Stern unloaded on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers after it was revealed the football player lied at a press conference when asked if he was vaccinated against COVID-19.

Rodgers, who was benched on November 3rd after testing positive for COVID-19, told reporters on Aug. 26 he was "immunized" from the virus. Responding to the question "are you vaccinated?" Rodgers replied "yeah, I've been immunized."

Instead of getting vaccinated, Rodgers admitted to sports podcaster Pat McAfee on Friday that he actually received a homeopathic treatment from his personal doctor.

Speaking on "The Pat McAfee Show on YouTube and SiriusXM," Rodgers insisted he didn't lie about his vaccination status, claiming he's in the "crosshairs of the woke mob" who are orchestrating a "witch hunt" against him.

Rodgers also said he gathered "500 pages of research" about the efficacy of vaccines in an attempt to convince the league to grant him an exemption from its vaccine requirement.

On his Sirius XM radio program Monday, Stern wasn't buying Rodger's lies.

"I was so worked up over the weekend about this fucking Aaron Rodgers of the NFL," Stern said. "I don't even know where to begin with that story. I mean this fucking guy."

Noting that Rodgers is a great football player and "that's why they put up with his bullshit," Stern said if he "ran the NFL … I would throw this guy out of the football league so fast."

"What he did to his fellow teammates … this fucking guy, they should throw him out of the league so fast," Stern added.

Turning to Rodgers' "bullshit" claim that he received homeopathic treatment for COVID-19 and therefore has "the antibodies," Stern was equally incensed.

"C'mon dude, really?" the radio host asked.

"First of all, I don't know where these guys get their information from …" Stern continued. "At the press conference he said he got his information from Joe Rogan … you got doctors who study in medical school. I don't know what has happened to this country."
