If you thought Sunday's game was exciting, this development should really wet your whistle!
An alleged ex-boyfriend of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers recently tried to out the NFL superstar as being gay!
Today the former MVP addressed those rumors in a radio interview, and what he said might shock you!
“I’m not gay. I really, really like women."
Well, there you have it!
While we respect that Aaron is willing to address any rumors publicly, we think it's very sad that we still live in a culture where outing someone else is a thing!
If he's gay, he's gay; if he's not, he's not!
Having more openly gay prominent athletes would hopefully make our culture more accepting of the LGBT community, but going public about one's sexuality is a very personal decision! It's not one anyone should ever make for someone else!
Aaron's dad, meanwhile, is apparently more upset with the allegations!
On one message board he allegedly recently wrote:
"I’m Aaron’s dad and this is a disgusting post. Aaron is actually engaged to a beautiful Christian woman. You are a slime ball for spreading this bullshit. How would you like your sorry ass sued!!!"
We can understand a father's urge to try and protect his children from rumors, but we hope he didn't mean to paint homosexuality in a bad light!
Everyone should be free to love whomever they want, why should it matter?!
Either way, the Packers are in the playoffs now and fans are far more concerned with how Aaron performs ON the field!
