Tattoo Artist Sparks Homophobic Firestorm with Aaron Rodgers Jock Strap Masterpiece

A tattoo artist has sparked an intense reaction on Instagram after posting a photo of her latest work of art: Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers posing in a jock strap and a half shirt.

The fetching tattoo apparently possesses the power to threaten anyone whose masculinity is too fragile to behold it.

Wrote tyler.tt: “What I’m 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.”

And the tattoo artist, Alisha Rice, fired back: “@tyler.tt Your hate is unwelcome here. Being heterosexual doesn’t give the right to name call people that are different from you. #meninshoulderpadsandtightNotsogay?”

Added sayme_ole_b: “Aaron should confiscate this gay guys arm. Not cool.”

largendonald came in with a witty retort: “That’s what a gay bay packer looks like lol”

And  polarisgalaxy chimed in: “This is hilarious 😀 Good to see this NFL fan supports Aaron Rodgers and she knows he is a gay man. Aaron is gay and dating Nick Jonas

A few of the other remarks:

iso400000000 “Not cool! By trying to say Aaron rodgers gay! Not cool!”

tha7sins “The gayest tattoo ever. I’m sure A rod don’t want this shit on anyone🤔🙄”

thinktanktattoo wrote: @tyronetheking if images of gay men give you nightmares, maybe you need to take a look at what’s really going on with you.

polarisgalaxy: I am not sure why people are upset at the fan? Aaron Rodgers is gay everyone knows this! His ex boyfriend Kevin Lanflisi still writes poetry about Aaron on Instagram. His relationship with Olivia Munn was fake they hardly were seen in public together she was his beard 😁

The comments go on and on.

Finally, Alisha Rice, the artist, had this to say in a follow-up post: “I’d like to to thank the Internet and the bloggers that brought homophobic football fans and armchair tattoo critiques to my door. I am happy with the results and so is the client. You may not understand why someone would want a hunky football player tattoo, but tattooing is personal. This tattoo is a celebration of identity, home, and team. That’s it! Hate and bigotry are not welcome here.”
