Carrie Underwood was caught shooting daggers at Luke Bryan at the 2021 CMA Awards on Thursday after making a joke about Aaron Rodgers’ misleading comments about the vaccine.
Bryan, 45, opened the show assuring viewers that CMAs “follow all health protocols to keep everyone safe” amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s so great to be here with all my fellow artists – tested and together. Or immune? Who is it? Just playing, “Bryan joked, referring to Rodgers, 37, describing himself as” immune “before finally admitting he was not vaccinated against the virus.
Cameras then moved to Underwood, 38, and showed her sitting in the audience, giving Bryan the side eye to end all side eyes.
The “Before He Cheats” singer apparently made it to Team Rodgers amid the controversy, as she “liked” the recent Instagram post of her husband Mike Fisher supporting the Green Bay Packers quarterback.
“I’m with @ aaronrodgers12,” the retired NHL player, 41, wrote on Saturday. “I believe in the freedom to choose what we put in our body and in the freedom of conscience. “
He went on to say, “The science clearly shows that the spread of the vaccinated virus is basically at the same rate as the unvaccinated. The @nhl @nfl and other leagues ignore the science and choose to coerce and punish unvaccinated players with these restrictions. “
The CDC said “a growing body of evidence” suggests vaccines dramatically reduce the risk of transmitting the novel coronavirus.
Fisher ended his post by urging his supporters to “fight for [their] medical freedom ”and“ get up now before it is too late ”.
Underwood, who married the Canadian athlete in July 2010 and shares two sons with him, has previously been criticized for “liking” a tweet condemning the “abusive” mask tenure in Nashville schools.
