Aaron Rodgers brought up “cancel culture” on ESPN, addressing the fallout from his recent comments linking a Disney employee to Jeffrey Epstein.
The New York Jets quarterback appeared on The Pat McAfee Show, claiming “cancel culture” is targeting him despite his regular appearance on a mainstream sports network. Jemele Hill criticized Rodgers, highlighting the irony of him complaining about cancel culture while enjoying a prominent platform on a mainstream show.
“Aaron Rodgers complaining about cancel culture and mainstream media while being platformed every week on a mainstream sports network is the most Aaron Rodgers thing ever,” Hill wrote.
Hill, who faced consequences at ESPN for comments about Donald Trump, noted the differences between her situation and McAfee’s, emphasizing the challenges she and Michael Smith experienced during their time on SportsCenter.
Despite the controversy, Rodgers continues to thrive in the mainstream media landscape.
