Aaron Rodgers takes swipe at ESPN exec after statement on QB’s Jimmy Kimmel remarks: ‘You’re not helping’

Aaron Rodgers on Tuesday took a swipe at an ESPN executive over the statement he put out last week after the New York Jets quarterback made a Jeffrey Epstein-related remark about Jimmy Kimmel.

During his appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” Rodgers said ESPN senior vice president, production Mike Foss’ statement didn’t really help.

“I don’t understand… a Mike Foss comment because he didn’t help out either,” Rodgers said. “And I’m going to quote Mike Foss. He said, ‘Aaron made a dumb and factually incorrect joke about Jimmy Kimmel. That should never have happened. We all realized that in the moment.’

“Mike, you’re not helping. You’re not helping because I just read earlier exactly what I said,” he added, saying the statement was a part of the media’s gameplan to criticize him.

After further explaining himself about what he believes in, he took one more jab at Foss.

“I feel like I made a statement about not wanting to be on a list to come out … ‘We realized that in the moment?’ What are you talking about?”

JIMMY KIMMEL LAUNCHES WILD ATTACK ON AARON RODGERS AFTER JEFFREY EPSTEIN JAB: ‘HAMSTER-BRAINED MAN’

ESPN didn’t immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

The controversy started last week when Rodgers took an Epstein-related dig at Kimmel during last week’s McAfee show.

“There’s a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, who are really hoping that doesn’t come out,” Rodgers said. “I’ll tell you what, if that list comes out, I definitely will be popping some sort of bottle.”

Kimmel threatened a lawsuit and on Monday night pushed back on any notion he was a pedophile or had any connection to Epstein.

Rodgers said earlier in the show he never called or asserted that Kimmel was a pedophile.
