Jimmy Kimmel criticizes Aaron Rodgers for bringing up the Jeffrey Epstein remark in his opening monologue

 Jimmy Kimmel criticizes Aaron Rodgers for bringing up the Jeffrey Epstein remark in his opening monologue.

NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been urged by Jimmy Kimmel to provide an apology for stating that the comic will be included in court records linked to Jeffrey Epstein.

On "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Monday night, the late-night presenter stated that although Rodgers was angry at being the subject of Jimmy's jokes, it's likely that he didn't think he was an associate of Epstein.

The claims were made by the quarterback for the New York Jets last week on "The Pat McAfee Show" on ESPN. "A lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, are really hoping that doesn't come out," he continued, alluding to court records that had been previously made public and contained the identities of over 150 persons who had been named in Epstein-related legal procedures. If "that list" was revealed, Rodgers continued, he would "definitely be popping some sort of bottle."

"And then it did come out and, of course, my name isn't on it ... I don't know Jeffrey Epstein, I've never met Jeffrey Epstein, I'm not on a list, I wasn't on a plane or an island or anything ever," Kimmel said in his opening monologue. "A lot of delusional people honestly believe I am meeting up with Tom Hanks and Oprah at Shakey's once a week to eat pizza and drink the blood of children," he continued.

"Either he actually believes my name was going to be on Epstein's list, which is insane, or the more likely scenario is he doesn't actually believe that, he just said it because he's mad at me for making fun of his top knot and his lies about being vaccinated," Kimmel said. If Rodgers does apologize, he would "accept his apology and move on." "When I do get something wrong, which happens on rare occasions. you know what I do? I apologize for it, which is what Aaron Rodgers should do, which is what a decent person would do, but I bet he won't," he stated.

During his opening monologue, Kimmel remarked that 2024 had already been a "crazy year, particularly for me." He continued by severely criticizing Rodgers for his remarks on his vaccination against COVID-19. Rodgers had stated that he had not had a vaccination and had instead taken ivermectin, a medication intended to treat parasites in cattle but generally disproven as a cure for COVID-19.

When Rodgers suggested in 2023—also on "The Pat McAffee Show"—that news stories of UFO sightings were somehow connected to the Epstein case, citing the "interesting timing," Kimmel referred to Rodgers as a "whack Packer."

In response to Rodgers, Kimmel stated last week on X that his family was in danger as a result of Rodgers' "reckless words" regarding the Epstein documents.

"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 said.

He went on to say: "Keep it up and we will debate the facts further in court."

Overnight attempts to get in touch with Rodgers were futile.

2019 saw Epstein's apprehension on sex trafficking allegations stemming from said instances that transpired between 2002 and 2005. In August of that year, he committed suicide in a detention cell; federal investigators concluded that staff mistakes and negligence were to blame for the occurrence.

Big names were listed in the initial documents that were made public last week, but not many fresh details. The majority of the names, including some well-known individuals, had previously been made public in court filings; yet, the case still inspires hysterical ideas and conjecture.

Last week, other records that had been sealed up revealed how underage females were enticed to visit the disgraced financier's Florida house.
