Shailene Woodley’s Aaron Rodgers Defense Is Pure Clownery

Shailene Woodley is down bad. Her husband-to-be, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, has been exposed as a certifiable loon, and it seems the actress has no recourse but to defend him—as opposed to, I don’t know, sitting there and eating her clay. Yesterday, in response to a Daily Mail report about Rodgers grabbing a coffee in Los Angeles unmasked, Woodley wrote that news outlets need to “calm the fuck down” from “grasping at straws” when it comes to her fiancé’s choices.
