Rodgers' post followed scrutiny over a viral video that appeared to capture the NFL star seemingly ignoring the ex-president.

Rodgers appeared to glance at up at Trump as he paraded by, but offered no reaction to seeing the ex-president.

While Trump critics applauded the NFL star for not giving the convicted felon ex-president the time of day, others weren't as happy with him over the apparent slight.

"Best thing Rodgers has done in years," wrote one X user in response to the viral video. Another replied, "Aaron Rodgers doing what every person with integrity and morality would do."
