Rodgers remarked during his weekly McAfee appearance on January 2, “There’s a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, that are really hoping that doesn’t come out.” The comedian responded by threatening legal action in an X/Twitter post. Stating in his recent live that his name never appeared in any of the documents, and he has no prior connection to the deceased paedophile, Jeffery Epstein.

He said, “When you hear a guy who won a Super Bowl and did all the State Farm commercials say something like this...” ‘Something’ in question being, “a lot of people believe it.

Comedian Kimmel further into the monologue shared his conclusion over why would retired NFL player would put him on blast. And unsurprisingly a dive into the case did reveal a motive. The accused host started with “he doesn’t actually believe it, and that he just said it because he’s mad at me for making fun of his top knot and his lies about being vaccinated.”
Additionally, the late-night host surmised that Rodgers’ largest grudge stemmed from the time he made fun of him. Rodgers was advocating a conspiracy theory stating that UFO news was being provided as a diversion from the Epstein list and that Rodgers’ comment was a kind of reprisal.
“Aaron got two A’s on his report card and they were both in the word ‘Aaron’,” Kimmel said throwing punchlines on darts. During the brutal clapback with a coating of humour, Jimmy also dismissed McAfee’s apology saying “Saying someone is a pedophile is not an opinion, nor is it trash talk. Sorry, Pat McAfee.”
However, Kimmel did say “When I do get something wrong, which happens on rare occasions, you know what I do? I apologize.” Adding about the footballer “But I bet he won’t. If he does, you know what I’ll do? I’ll accept his apology and move on. But he probably won’t do that. My guess is he won’t apologize.”
