According to Jay Cutler himself, the former Chicago Bears quarterback lost out on an opportunity to appear in an Uber Eats commercial made possible by a partnership with the NFL. Cutler tweeted that Uber Eats chose not to feature him in the advertisement, which was set to be filmed in Los Angeles, because his views do not align with the company's views.

It can be reasonably assumed that the views in question pertain to Cutler's recent tweets and retweets expressing disapproval with mask mandates in schools. Cutler is considering running for a school board position in the future, which he has tweeted about, and has criticized certain school-related COVID-19 protocols.

When reached for comment over the Cutler fallout, an Uber Eats spokesperson told the Daily Mail that the company is "only looking to work with those who are pro-vaccination" and added that the food delivery service is "proud of all the work Uber has done over the last year to help get as many people vaccinated as possible" and prefers "to partner with those who support that work."
