From the 2021 CMA Awards, Luke Bryan poked fun at the comment made by Aaron on COVID-19 vaccine. Luke Bryan opened up with a monologue that referenced Aaron Rodgers recent comments about the COVID-19 vaccine. “We’re following all the health protocols to keep everyone safe and it’s so great to be here with all my fellow artists, tested and together,” Luke said. “Or immunized? Who is it? Just playin’!” The joke was in reference to Aaron saying that he was “immunized” against COVID-19 earlier this year, only for it to be revealed in November that he had not gotten the COVID vaccine.
Reaction After Luke Joke
As soon as Luke made this joke, the cameras panned to Carrie Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher. Mike was in the crowd at the CMAs. Mike openly supported Aaron’s stance about the COVID vaccine on social media, and Carrie didn’t look too happy that Luke had made a joke at her husband’s expense. However, fans immediately took notice of the reaction, and called Carrie out for her “side eye” in the audience.
The COVID-19 controversy by Aaron gained him headlines at the beginning of November. It then revealed that he had tested positive for the virus and had not been vaccinated. He called out for not following the protocols for non-vaccinated NFL players.Therefore putting his teammates at risk. However, Aaron vehemently defended his decision to make his own choices about his body.
Wife of Mike, Carrie did not share any public statement or comment on the situation. However, earlier this year, she came under fire for ‘liking’ a tweet that stood against mask mandates for children in schools. Country music fans were very divided over Carrie’s stance on the situation.
