On the Uncut with Jay Cutler podcast hosted by the former Chicago Bears quarterback, Steele took the opportunity to rage against her employers, who like many others in the US are making their staff receive their Covid vaccines.
“I work for a company that mandates it and I had until September 30th to get it done or I’m out,” Steele revealed.
Yesterday, Steele retweeted a statement regarding vaccines from NBA star Jonathan Isaac, who took offense to a Rolling Stone article that dubbed him anti-vax and wrote that: “Misrepresentation only allows for others to attack straw men, and not reason with the true ideas and heart of their fellow man. It helps no one!
“True journalism is dying! I believe it is your God given right to decide if taking the vaccine is right for you! Period!,” the Orlando Magic power forward concluded.
Issac, who has contracted Covid once already, has been outspoken regarding his reluctance to take the vaccine as vaccination rates in the NBA stand at 90%.
On Wednesday, the league’s executive vice president of communications Mike Bass announced that any player “who elects not to comply with local vaccination mandates will not be paid for games that he misses.”
