Former Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said this weekend that he was dropped from an upcoming Uber Eats commercial over his support of parents who are fed up with school mask mandates.
This was the super offensive tweet he made the week prior, which Cutler connected to his being dropped from the ad:
OH MY GOODNESS HE GENERICALLY QUESTIONED THE POLICY OF YOUNG KIDS BEING FORCED TO WEAR MASKS ALL DAY EVERY DAY???
Guy must be a science-denying psycho monster!
The Federalist reached out for comment and here's what Uber Eats said in response:
In a statement sent to The Federalist, a spokeswoman for Uber Eats claimed that Cutler, 38, is not the proper candidate for its ad campaign work.
"We are proud of all the work Uber has done over the last year to help get as many people vaccinated as possible," an Uber spokeswoman said. "As such, we prefer to partner with those who support that work."
When asked in a follow-up who will replace the former quarterback, Uber did not respond. Cutler did not respond to The Federalist's subsequent request for comment.
As this story broke, Cutler went on Twitter to share some more extremist views:
It's also worth noting that he doesn't think everyone in the world should get the vaccine and that he supported President Trump. You know, "fringe" views.
What a crazy guy!
