Opening the annual gala, Bryan -- who was hosting the event -- seemingly referenced the Aaron Rodgers coronavirus controversy, which involved the quarterback testing positive for Covid-19 after announcing he had been "immunized."
"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," Bryan said on the Nashville stage. "Or immunized? Who is it? Just playin'!"
we’re only ten minutes into the #CMAawards and my favourite part of the show will be Luke Bryan talking about being immunized and then panning to Carrie Underwood after Mike Fisher’s vaccine comments this week 😂
"Great @carrieunderwood side eye," wrote one follower, as another asked, "Was it just me or…did you also catch @carrieunderwood's side-eye after @lukebryan said everyone was 'immunized.'"
And one fan posted, "We're only ten minutes into the #CMAawards and my favourite part of the show will be Luke Bryan talking about being immunized and then panning to Carrie Underwood after Mike Fisher’s vaccine comments this week."
"I stand with @aaronrodgers12," Fisher wrote on Instagram over the weekend. "I believe in the freedom to choose what we put in our bodies and the freedom of conscience. I agree with him in that the science clearly shows the vaccinated spread covid at basically the same rate as the unvaccinated."
Did anyone catch @carrieunderwood reaction to @lukebryan opening comment on the @cmaawards_ about the audience being health compliant with a negative test? Or immunized and then cracked a comment with ‘or not immunized?’ Yeah. . . Her facial reaction said it all. 😔
So Like Bryan called out Aaron Rodgers in his opening monologue for being unvaccinated &stated he was happy everyone there was then Carrie Underwood gave him the side eye because her husband Mike Fisher agrees with Rodgers about being unvaccinated & advocates against the vaccine
