Pat McAfee seems to be harboring lingering frustration after accusing an ESPN executive of attempting to “sabotage” his show on Friday.
Ending the week with a rant on ‘The Pat McAfee Show,’ McAfee targeted Norby Williamson, ESPN’s head of NFL programming, accusing him of leaking inaccurate information. McAfee went further, expressing “zero respect” for Williamson and emphasizing a mutual dislike between them.
Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter) on Saturday, McAfee posted a classic scene from ‘Scarface,’ where Al Pacino’s iconic character, Tony Montana, accuses a restaurant full of people of cowardice and dishonesty, asserting that he always tells the truth, and they need individuals like him to feel better about themselves.
These developments follow Aaron Rodgers’ suggestion on Tuesday’s show that Jimmy Kimmel might be on the “Epstein list.” While McAfee has issued an apology, it is evident that Rodgers’ comments stirred some controversy at ESPN.
McAfee appears to understand the dynamics that drive his show’s popularity, with drama and controversy attracting more viewers. The more he creates, the more eyeballs are drawn to his show.
