Pat McAfee Tries To Squash Feud Between Aaron Rodgers And Jimmy Kimmel

Pat McAfee has tried to prevent any legal action from occurring as a result of comments made by Aaron Rodgers on this show yesterday. While discussing Rodgers’ claims about Jimmy Kimmel, McAfee said that Rodgers’ comments were “certainly probably just a sh-t talk joke” and that everyone involved should just move on. However, McAfee did note that he understood why Kimmel had reacted so heatedly.

Comments made on The Pat McAfee Show have previously led to actual lawsuits being filed. Pat McAfee himself was sued for defamation by Brett Favre. That suit came after comments that McAfee made about Favre’s involvement in a Mississippi welfare fund scandal. Kimmel and Rodgers have traded barbs for years. Howver, Rodgers took it to a whole new place after all-but accusing Kimmel of being affiliated with the convicted sex offender. It’s also causing a headache for ESPN as the topic came up to a comment made by show regular A.J. Hawk and wasn’t simply Rodgers going rogue.

Why Are Jimmy Kimmel And Aaron Rodgers Feuding?

The whole situation stems from Rodgers’ comments on McAfee’s show on January 2, and Kimmel’s response to Rodgers. Rodgers specifically named Kimmel as someone who “doesn’t want” a soon-to-be-released list of names previously redacted in a civil suit filed before Jeffrey Epstein’s death to be made public. The purported list contains around 150 names of people allegedly associated with Epstein and his sex crimes. However, it was not a comment that Kimmel took lightly.

“For the record, I’ve not met, flown with, visited, or had any contact whatsoever with Epstein, nor will you find my name on any ‘list’ other than the clearly-phony nonsense that soft-brained wackos like yourself can’t seem to distinguish from reality. Your reckless words put my family in danger. Keep it up and we will debate the facts further in court,” Kimmel wrote on X. While McAfee has now responded to the feud, both Rodgers and ESPN are yet to comment.
