Kirk Cousins' Hometown Hospital Cuts Ties With QB For Refusing COVID Vaccine
Kirk Cousins is getting cut — not by the Minnesota Vikings, but his hometown hospital … and it’s all thanks to his stance against taking the COVID-19 vaccine.
Cousins is one of the most famous celebs out of Holland, Michigan … becoming a high school superstar before taking his talents to Michigan State.
The 32-year-old signal-caller has served as a spokesperson for the Holland Hospital in the past … but a spokesperson says they will be distancing themselves from Cousins for the time being.
“While we acknowledge that each person is entitled to their own viewpoints, those who speak on our behalf must support the messages that align with the hospital’s position on matters of vital importance to individual and community health,” the statement said.
Remember, Cousins said he’ll do everything in his power to stay healthy and safe during the NFL season … that is, except getting the vaccination.
As a hospital, they saw no choice but to move on from Cousins, who is actively and openly refuting recommendations from leading medical experts and the CDC.
Holland Hospital was nice during the breakup, however, … adding, “We are proud of our association with Kirk. He embodies many values we respect and share as a part of our work culture.”
Worth noting — while the NFL is implementing rules that push their players towards the vaccine, Cousin’s Vikings have among the lowest vaccination rate of any team in the league.
Pretty easy choice by the hospital.
