Chiefs’ star player Travis Kelce responded to New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers calling him Mr. Pfizer and joked, “Who knew I would get into the vax wars with Aaron Rodgers” after Kelce appeared in an ad for the pharmaceutical company.

During a press conference on Friday, the Kansas City tight end laughed about the nickname and told the press it was a “pretty good” one from the all-star QB and made it clear he was “fully comfortable” with being called that.

When pressed further by a reporter on why he decided to appear in a commercial for the company that manufactures the COVID vaccine, the professional football player said he got it to keep “my family safe.”

“I mean, I’ve always been, you know, once I got the vaccine … I got it because of, you know, keeping myself safe, keeping my family safe, the people in this building,” Kelce said.

“So yeah, I stand by it 1000% and fully comfortable with him calling me Mr. Pfizer,” he added.

Earlier this week, the superstar Jets QB labeled Taylor Swift’s rumored boyfriend “Mr. Pfizer” following New York’s loss to the Kansas City team on Sunday night.

During Rodgers’ weekly appearance on the “Pat McAfee Show,” the NFL MVP took a swipe at Kelce, noting that the Jets’ defense kept the team in the game, despite ultimately falling to the Patrick Mahomes-led squad 23 to 20 during “Sunday Night Football.”


“I think there’s some sentiment that there’s some sort of moral victory there,” Rodgers told the host. “That we hung with the champs.”

“And that our defense played well and Pat [Mahomes] didn’t have a crazy game,” he added. “And Mr. Pfizer, we kind of shut him down a little bit. He didn’t have any crazy impact on the game, other than some yards and stuff.”

The comments left the host busting up laughing, but he attempted to cover up his snickers from disrupting the Jets QB’s remarks.

“I felt like for the most part we played really tough on defense the last three quarters and that was important for us,” he added. Rodgers could hear the laughter coming from the other side of the microphone and was smiling.

The clip went viral with more than 28 million views and counting at the time of this publication. “Mr. Pfizer” also began trending on X on Tuesday.

Rodgers made headlines in 2021 when he was accused of misleading comments about his vaccination status, saying he was “immunized.” However, it was later revealed that he had not been vaccinated.
