Radical liberal late night host Jimmy Kimmel is threatening to sue quarterback Aaron Rodgers after the NFL legend hinted that the ABC TV personality could be on the “client list” of the late billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
Kimmel threatens to sue Rodgers
During an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Tuesday, Rodgers discussed reports that the names of more than 150 of Epstein's associates could potentially be released this week, according to Variety.
“There are a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, who are really hoping this doesn't happen,” Rodgers said. “I'll tell you, if those menus come up, I'll definitely open a bottle.”
This didn't sit well with Kimmel, who responded with a complete meltdown on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
“Dear Aasshole: For the record, I have never met, traveled with, visited, or had any contact with Epstein, and you will not find my name on any 'list' other than the obviously false nonsense spewed by soft-minded lunatics,” Kimmel wrote: “Like you don't seem to be indistinguishable.” “Between him and reality.”
He added: “Your reckless words put my family in danger.” “Go ahead and we will discuss the facts further in court.”

Rodgers and Kimmel Epstein's past feud
This isn't the first time Rodgers and Kimmel have publicly sparred over Epstein. Last year, Kimmel mocked Rodgers for talking about the Epstein list and UFOs during another appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” in February.
“Did you hear about the list of Epstein's clients that is about to be released?” Rodgers said at the time. “There are some files with some names that may be released soon.”
He continued: “(Ghislaine) Maxwell was the only person ever convicted of trafficking, and no one involved in trafficking has ever gone to prison, so there's nothing to see here.”
After playing a clip of Rodgers' comments on his eponymous late-night talk show, Kimmel quipped, “It might be time to reconsider concussion protocol, Aaron,” and went on to refer to the NFL star as ” Tin foil hat maker. David Bakhtiari, Rodgers' friend and then-teammate, responded to Kimmel with: “He told me you were on Jeffrey Epstein's client list, without telling me you were on Jeffrey Epstein's client list. . . .”

Origins of Rodgers' feud with Kimmel
The New York Post reported that the feud between Rodgers and Kimmel dates back to November of 2021, when the late-night host called out the Green Bay Packers quarterback after the latter tested positive for COVID-19. Kimmel objected to Rodgers receiving homeopathic treatment instead of a vaccination while also mocking his hairstyle.
“We had to know because nothing says, ‘I'm healing myself with crystals like this haircut.'” “I mean a little knot on top,” Kimmel said. “Aaron is Karen, that’s the truth of it.”
He added: “The only thing worse than not getting vaccinated when you are in close proximity to other people is letting them think you are vaccinated when you are not.” “It's basically the equivalent of a dropped condom.”
This was a reference to Rodgers saying he had been “vaccinated” when asked if he had been vaccinated. Check out that full segment in the video below.
