Jimmy Kimmel threatens to take New York Jet’s quarterback Aaron Rodgers to court, after the NFL star linked him to Epstein list. Check it out.

Rodgers was born on December 2, 1983, in Chico, California, the son of Darla Leigh (née Pittman) and Edward Wesley Rodgers.
His father is a Texas-born chiropractor who played football as an offensive lineman for the Chico State Wildcats from 1973 to 1976.
Rodgers is of English, Irish and German ancestry. The family moved to Ukiah, California, where he attended Oak Manor Elementary School.
Edward Rodgers tossed a football with his sons Luke, Aaron and Jordan Rodgers, and told them not to drink and not to party in college or they would limit themselves in sports like he did. Aaron took this advice to heart.
At the age of ten, he was featured on the front page of the Ukiah Daily Journal for his top performance at a local basketball free throw competition.
Later, the family moved to Beaverton, Oregon, where Rodgers attended Vose Elementary School and Whitford Middle School, and played baseball in the Raleigh Hills Little League at shortstop, center field and pitcher.
Aaron Rodgers Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel is defending himself from the accusations thrown by NFL star Aaron Rodgers. The New York Jets quarterback suggested the ABC late-night show host would appear on a list set to be released soon of associates linked to Jeffrey Epstein.
Kimmel was having none of that and took to social media to call Rodgers out and hinted he would take legal action.
“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,” Kimmel posted on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. “Your reckless words put my family in danger. Keep it up and we will debate the facts further in court.”
“There’s a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, who are hoping that list doesn’t come out,” Rodgers said.
McAfee joked that Rodgers had been “waiting in his wine cellar for this thing,” with the football star adding, “There’s a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, who are really hoping that list doesn’t come out.”
Rodgers then added, “I’ll tell you what, if that list comes out, I will definitely be popping some sort of bottle.”
McAfee explained that Rodgers’ comment comes after Kimmel mocked the player for his comments about Epstein and UFOs while appearing on the same show.
“All this UFO talk has the tin foil hatters going wild, including Green Bay whack packer Aaron Rodgers,” Kimmel said while introducing the Pat McAfee Show segment with Rodgers from March 2023.
Aaron Rodgers Epstein Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel is setting the record straight — and threatening to sue Aaron Rodgers after the quarterback suggested that the comedian had some sort of link to Jeffrey Epstein.
On Monday, Rodgers said on ESPN that he would pop “some sort of bottle” once a list of associates to Epstein is released, adding that “a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel,” should be scared about being on it. Kimmel, in a tweet Tuesday, clarified that he has never met or “had any contact” with Epstein.
“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,” Kimmel wrote.
The comment from Rodgers comes months after the late-night host joked on his show that the NFL should “revisit the concussion protocol” after Rodgers said he looked forward to seeing what’s on the so-called “Epstein client list” and described him as a “tin foil hatter.”
The “list” that Rodgers refers to is part of the information that a U.S. judge ordered to unseal related to Virginia Giuffre’s settled lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell. The exact scope of the information contained in the documents is unclear, though over 150 Epstein associates could be named.
Many of the files are related to John or Jane Does who have previously spoken publicly about their connections to Epstein, or aired accusations against him. The long-under-seal documents are related to a defamation suit Giuffre — one of Epstein’s most prominent accusers — brought in 2015 against Maxwell, the financier/child sex trafficker’s alleged madam and romantic partner.
During an appearance on the “Pat McAfee Show” on Tuesday, the New York Jets quarterback suggested that Kimmel was among those named on the Epstein list, saying, “There’s a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, really hoping that doesn’t come out.”
The names of over 150 associates of the late sex offender Epstein are set to be revealed following a court order from a federal judge in December.
“I’ll tell you what, if that lists comes out, I definitely will be popping some sort of bottle,” Rodgers added.
Kimmel took to X/Twitter to dismiss Rodgers’ claim about his connection to Epstein, writing, “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.”
Back in March 2023, Kimmel mocked Rodgers for discussing the Epstein list and UFOs during a February appearance on the “Pat McAfee Show.”
“Did you hear about the Epstein client list about to be released?” Rodgers said. “There’s some files that have some names on it that might be getting released pretty soon.”
Kimmel played the clip of Rodgers on his eponymous late-night show, saying “it might be time to revisit the concussion protocol, Aaron.” He also referred to the quarterback as a “tin-foil hatter.”
