Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins isn’t a believer in facemasks, and he’s continuing on with that hot take.
Other NFL players such as Aaron Rodgers have even went on to say that having been sheltered in place earlier in the year was “fascist,” which is ridiculous, as well over five million people have contracted the coronavirus.
And while Cousins may not feel as strongly as Rodgers does, he continues to lobby against wearing facemasks, saying that he doesn’t believe they help preven the spread of the virus.
The Vikings signal-caller appeared on the “10 Questions With Kyle Brandt” podcast, and he shared his thoughts about it all on there, even going as far as to say he doesn’t fear dying from Covid-19.
“If I die, I die,” Cousins said, as transcribed by ESPN.com. “I kind of have peace about that.”
“I want to respect what other people’s concerns are. For me personally, just talking no one else can get the virus, what is your concern if you could get it, I would say I’m gonna go about my daily life. If I get it, I’m gonna ride it out. I’m gonna let nature do its course. Survival-of-the-fittest kind of approach. And just say, if it knocks me out, it knocks me out. I’m going to be OK. You know, even if I die. If I die, I die. I kind of have peace about that.”
An interesting take, given that Cousins does have a wife and two children, but he’s entitled to his opinion, and at least he was respectful in sharing it.
