All-pro NFL wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins took to Twitter to share his concerns about the league’s newly-updated COVID-19 vaccination policy. The league recently announced that players who are not vaccinated will be subject to forfeitures and other penalties.
Many players have voiced dissatisfaction with the league’s edict, claiming vaccination was initially pitched as a choice. Now, the league is making it nearly impossible for a player — albeit an every-down superstar — to survive the season without experiencing COVID-19 related issues.
This has brought Hopkins, one of the very best players in the league, to the brink of retirement.
In his since-deleted tweet, the Arizona Cardinals receiver implied that he would rather stop playing the game he loves than be forced to take the COVID-19 vaccine:
“Never thought I would say this, but being put in a position to hurt my team because I don’t want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the NFL.” — Deandre Hopkins on Twitter. July 22nd, 2021.
There is a long history of vaccine hesitancy, for good reason. This is especially true for someone from the black community. Sickening government experimentation and sterilization on black people is long-documented, even in America, most notably the Deep South, which was a Democratic stronghold.
Hopkins’ comments came just a day ago, and today, Friday, Minnesota Vikings offensive line coach Rick Dennison was FIRED for refusing to take the COVID-19 jab.
Other NFL stars, including Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, have voiced their vax concerns on Twitter:
Some players had negative reactions, but there has been an overwhelming level of support for Hopkins from NFL players.
