Shailene Woodley's fiancé, Aaron Rodgers, is facing a ton of backlash for refusing to receive the COVID vaccine.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week, appearing on a talk show on Friday to cite a number of false statements against getting the vaccine — and complaining about the "woke mob" coming for the unvaccinated.

Although he did not mention her, Shailene's name started to come into the conversation — as the pair have been engaged since late 2020. Some blamed her for Aaron's decision not to get vaccinated, a take which others criticized for being misogynistic — as Aaron is responsible for his own actions.

For context, Shailene previously said in 2013, "I make my own medicines; I don't get those from doctors." It's not clear whether she is currently vaccinated.

Amidst the online discussion, Shailene reportedly shared a quote to her Instagram story that read, “Calm Seas May Bring You Peace, But Storms Are Where You’ll Find Your Power.”

Shailene then shared a post about expectations from partners from an astrology account with the word "yep." The caption of the post itself reads, "Venus enters Capricorn today; time to raise your standards."

Shailene is a Scorpio, so she wants her partner to "be able to spend extensive periods of time apart while remaining obsessed with them." Aaron is a Sag, so he wants his partner to "let them roam." 

After media reports, Shailene then posted a story that stated, “Just read somewhere that the media is claiming I deleted an Insta story amid the ‘chaos.’ (An astrology post of all things) (not cryptic at all you dummies). Do you even know how stories work brah? They self-delete after 24 hours. Literally lol’ing over here over your determination to make a story out of nothing. Grasping at straws my dears.”

For what it's worth, the post reports are saying was deleted was the one with the quote "Calm Seas May Bring You Peace, But Storms Are Where You’ll Find Your Power" — not the astrology post. 

As well as a post from writer Nikita Gill about liking "people a bit damaged."

The two may very well not be physically together right now, as Aaron previously said that the two would be spending some time apart during the NFL season. Also, Shailene is working on other projects.

Either way, please just get vaccinated, people.
