The ongoing beef between Aaron Rodgers and Jimmy Kimmel continued after the Green Bay Packers quarterback appeared on “The Pat McAfee Show” without offering an apology. In response, Kimmel took multiple shots at Rodgers on his own show, refraining from using the Jets quarterback’s name.
Kimmel began his Tuesday monologue discussing the “tumultuous week” he had, alluding to the recent feud. He sarcastically mentioned watching the college national championship game between the University of Michigan and the University of Washington, humorously questioning the accuracy of the mainstream media’s reported score.
“Things have settled down. We had a tumultuous week butting heads with delusional people,” Kimmel said. “I was actually watching people actually play football last night. I was watching the college national championship game, the University of Michigan beat the University of Washington — 34 to 13 was the score — if you believe the mainstream media.”
The conflict started when Rodgers suggested on McAfee’s show that Kimmel’s name might appear on unsealed court documents related to Jeffrey Epstein. Kimmel responded with a threat of legal action, leading to a Monday monologue where he ranted about Rodgers. In his response on McAfee’s show, Rodgers expressed no apologies, specifically mentioning “that guy from ABC” and clarifying he did not believe Kimmel was connected to Epstein.
Kimmel, known for his previous jabs at Rodgers regarding COVID-19 vaccination status, continued to playfully mock the quarterback on Tuesday night. He made a joke about fears over a “tripledemic” in the United States, referencing the flu, COVID-19, and RSV as the “three amigos of phlegm” and humorously suggesting asking a medical professional or an NFL quarterback for preventative advice.
The feud between Rodgers and Kimmel shows no signs of ending, leaving observers curious about what will unfold next.
