Jimmy Kimmel Threatens To Sue Aaron Rodgers Over Suggestion That He’s On Jeffrey Epstein’s Client List

Seems like Aaron Rodgers struck a nerve with that one…

Earlier today, the New York Jets quarterback made an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show and took a direct shot at late night host Jimmy Kimmel, suggesting that Kimmel would appear on Jeffrey Epstein’s client list that will allegedly be dropping soon.

The bad blood between the two started in early 2023 when Kimmel brought up Rodgers during a monologue on his show:

“All this UFO talk has the tin foil hatters going wild, including wack-Packer Aaron Rodgers who offered this hot take on ‘The Pat McAfee Show.”

He then replayed a clip of Rodgers on the show from back in February, saying:

“I believe that this has been going on for a long time. Interesting timing on everything. There’s a lot of other things going on in the world…

Did you hear about the Epstein client list about to be released? There are some files that have some names on it that might be getting released pretty soon.”

That’s when Kimmel snapped back:

“It might be time to revisit that concussion protocol, Aaron.”

Well Rodgers clearly hasn’t forgotten, and during today’s appearance with Pat McAfee, he again threw out Kimmel’s name as one that he suspected would appear on the Epstein client list:

“That’s supposed to be coming out soon… There’s a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel that are really hoping that doesn’t come out.”

And the QB said he would be “popping bottles” when the list is finally released:

And Rodgers says he’s going to pop bottles when the list is finally released:

“If that list comes out, I definitely will be popping some sort of bottle.”

But apparently Kimmel wasn’t amused by the suggestion that his name would appear on Epstein’s list. (And really, who could blame him? Nobody wants to be associated with one of the most notorious pedophiles in history…)

In a post on Twitter (we can all agree we’re still calling it Twitter and not X in 2024, right?), Kimmel shot back at Rodgers for the accusations, and threatened legal action against the QB:

“Dear Aasshole: 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.”

I guess we’ll have to see if Rodgers wants to keep going at Kimmel – but if there’s one thing we know about Aaron Rodgers, it’s that he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to back down from his beliefs, no matter what other people think.
