Pete Davidson does an amazing Aaron Rodgers impersonation in the latest “Saturday Night Live” sketch, which takes a swing at the Green Bay Quarterback’s ongoing vaccinate controversy.
Although many fans thought that Rodgers was vaccinated against COVID-19, Rodgers later backtracked and insists he didn’t lie about being vaccinated because he claimed that he was “immunized.”
Claiming to be allergic to the COVID-19 vaccine, Rodgers raised even more eyebrows when he told “The Pat McAfee Show” that he didn’t want to “have to acquiesce to some woke culture of crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something.”
He additionally backed unsupported claims that the vaccine can make you sterile and revealed that he was taking ivermectin and received monoclonal antibodies under the guidance of “now good friend of mine” Joe Rogan, who also tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this year.
‘It’s My Body And My COVID’

In this skit, Pete Davidson dresses up as Aaron Rodgers on “Justice with Jeanine Pirro” with Cecily Strong reprising her role as Jeanine Pirro.
“Hey, it’s great to be here,” he says in the skit. “Remember when I hosted ‘Jeopardy!’?
Rodgers was recently the victim of savage tweets from “Jeopardy!” fans who were celebrating the fact that Rodgers was ultimately passed over for the job of permanent host.
“Now, Aaron, you’re not vaccinated,” Pirro replied before throwing her hands up in the air. “So what? Who the h— cares? It’s your body, your choice. And please never use that quote for any other issues.”
“Exactly,” he replied. “It’s my body and my COVID. You know, I can give it to whoever I want. But suddenly the ‘woke mob’ is coming after me. It’s gotten so bad that State Farm called and they’re not even offering me the Rodgers break.”
When Pirro asked if he had ever lied about being vaccinated, he replied, “Uh, I never lie. I took all of my teammates into a huddle, got all their faces three inches away from my wet mouth, and told them, ‘Trust me. I’m more or less immunized. Go team!’’
“And you said you didn’t get the vaccine because it might make you so sterile, which is so insane, I’m jealous I didn’t say it,” Pirro adds.
“Hey, look, people can talk all they want, but at the end of the day, my record is still 7-1,” he replied. “Meaning, of the 8 people I have infected, 7 are fine.”
“Wow,” Pirro replied. “Call this guy the bottom of the Snapple cap because he’s got facts!”

Many fans were hoping that host Kieran Culkin would actually take on the role of Rodgers in the highly-anticipated skit.
One fan took to Twitter before the show to share, “I can’t wait to see Kieran Culkin doing a sketch that drags the h— out of Aaron Rodgers on @snl tonight.”
“Ok, Kieran Culkin as Aaron Rodgers tonight or @nbcsnl made a mistake,” another wrote.
Others called Davidson’s portrayal of Rodgers “too fun.”
“Boy I did NOT have Pete Davidson as Aaron Rodgers to open @nbcsnl on my 2021 bingo card,” one fan tweeted. “But they understood the assignment.”
