Tattoo Of Packers QB Aaron Rodgers In Jockstrap Infuriates Homophobes
Homophobes came out of the woodwork to troll a Denver tattoo artist after she shared an image of a recent piece of work to Instagram.
The new tattoo featured a man in a jockstrap, wearing Aaron Rodgers' Green Bay Packers jersey.
Commented one troll:
“What in tarnation is this gay ass sh*t? This is what y’all do up in Wisconsin? Don’t even look like his face and that helmet is severely f**ked. This some homo ass sh*t.”
“The gayest tattoo ever. I’m sure A rod don’t want this shit on anyone.”
Tattoo artist Alisha Rice told The Huffington Post:
“The idea for the tattoo was a combination of the client wanting a traditional American style male pinup and a packers tattoo."
Rice explained the tattoo was, “just meant to be a fun, tongue in cheek ode to the team," and not a comment on Rodgers' sexuality.
“If anyone has an issue with the tattoo I’d challenge them to ask themselves why and reflect on the apparent double standard regarding the sexualization of the male and female forms.”
