Jimmy Kimmel threatened New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers with “court” action a day after Rodgers alleged that the late-night talk show host’s name would soon be revealed in a civil case regarding convicted sex offender Jeffrey Will be included in the upcoming information. Epstein, Pat McAfee apologize for “being part of this”.

On Tuesday, on “The Pat McAfee Show,” Rodgers indicated that Kimmel’s name would appear in court documents in the case filed against Epstein before his death. The documents include the names of more than 150 people who were previously redacted from court filings.

“It is going to be revealed soon. A lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, are really hoping this doesn’t come out,” Rodgers said.
Kimmel reposted a clip from “The Pat McAfee Show” segment on X and denied the allegation.

“For the record, I have neither met Epstein, nor flown with him, nor visited with him, nor have any contact with him, nor do you use my name in any way other than obviously fake bullshit. “The list” that soft-spoken idiots like you can make appears to be no different from reality,” Kimmel said. “Your careless words have put my family in danger. Keep this up and we will debate the facts further in the court.

To start his show on Wednesday, McAfee addressed the situation, “I can absolutely see why Jimmy Kimmel felt that way, especially with his situation. But I think Aaron was just trying to make a point. Now, did this go too far for a lot of people… Jimmy Kimmel certainly said that was the case. We, and I, immediately tried to be like, ‘Wow’ when that happened.”

McAfee added, “We obviously don’t like the fact that we’re associated with anything negative. We want our show to be uplifting, lighthearted and fun. But that’s because we talk and try to take everything for granted. Some things, obviously people get very angry about, especially when there are serious allegations. So we apologize for being a part of this. Can’t wait to hear what Aaron says about this. Hopefully, both of them will be able to settle this simply and not in court. But be able to gossip and move on.

Kimmel and Rodgers have a history of feuding, and the talk show host previously took digs at Rodgers over his stance on vaccines and theories about UFOs. In March 2023, Kimmel called Rodgers a “Green Bay Whack Packer” after Rodgers made comments on “The Pat McAfee Show” in February 2023 that suggested that UFO news was intentionally designed to distract the public from the potential disclosure of the Epstein list. Were issued to divert attention.

Kimmel’s show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, airs on ABC while “The Pat McAfee Show” airs on ESPN. Both are owned by Disney.
