GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – At least one company has decided to stand behind Aaron Rodgers after his statements last Friday on The Pat McAfee Show.

After losing his endorsement from Prevea, State Farm provided a statement on Monday about where it stands in regards to Rodgers.

In a statement to USA TODAY Sports, a State Farm spokeswoman reportedly said:

“We don’t support some of the statements that he has made, but we respect his right to have his own personal point of view. We recognize our customers, employees, agents and brand ambassadors come from all walks of life, with differing viewpoints on many issues. Our mission at State Farm is to support safer, stronger communities. To that end, we encourage vaccinations, but respect everyone’s right to make a choice based on their personal circumstances.”

The company also reportedly mentioned that Rodgers has been ‘a great ambassador’ for the company.
