    Holland Hospital drops Vikings QB, ex-MSU star Kirk Cousins over anti-vax stance


    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins will earn a $21-million salary in 2021.

    But the Michigan State alum is taking a slight hit to the pocket book, after his hometown Holland Hospital dropped him as a spokesman this week.

    Holland Hospital made the announcement Friday, after Cousins made anti-vaccine comments after returning from quarantine following close contact with someone who was exposed COVID-19.

    Holland Hospital, in west Michigan, didn’t rule out partnering with Cousins in the future. The hospital did not say how long Cousins has been a spokesman, nor the finances of the relationship.

    “As the trusted health care leader along the lakeshore, we are committed to providing accurate, timely health information and guidance based on guidelines from the CDC and medical experts. While we acknowledge that each person is entitled to their own viewpoints, those who speak on our behalf must support messages that align with the hospital’s position on matters of vital importance to individual and community health. For this reason, Holland Hospital will discontinue using Kirk Cousins as our spokesperson for now,” Holland Hospital said in its statement Friday. “We are proud of our association with Kirk. He embodies many values we respect and share as part of our work culture. However, we must be certain that our communications about COVID vaccination are consistent and unequivocal.
