Jimmy Kimmel issued a threat to Aaron Rodgers on Tuesday in response to what the New York Jets quarterback said in a TV appearance.

Rodgers was a guest for his usual Tuesday appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show.” The subject of the list of people who had visited Jeffrey Epstein’s island was trending on the X app during the day, which led to the topic coming up during Rodgers’ appearance.

“A lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, are really hoping that doesn’t come out,” Rodgers said with a smile regarding the list.

Rodgers admitted he’s been anticipating the release of the list.

“If that lists comes out, I’ll definitely be popping some sort of bottle,” Rodgers said on the show.

One person who did not appreciate his name being included was Kimmel.

The late-night TV host issued a strongly-worded response to Rodgers via X and even threatened the Jets quarterback.

“Dear Aa–hole: 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. @AaronRodgers12,” Kimmel wrote in a post on X (censored by LBS).

Kimmel is threatening to take legal action against Rodgers. There is a version of the list that includes Kimmel’s name, but the list is fake and was edited.

Rodgers has some beef towards Kimmel because the TV show host mocked the quarterback in 2021 for not taking the COVID vaccine.

Rodgers has the memory of an elephant and doesn’t forget. He’s hoping to get his revenge on Kimmel somehow.
