Jimmy Kimmel slammed Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Wednesday as a “tin foil hatter” for wanting to see Jeffrey Epstein’s client list — but Rodgers’ teammate David Bakhtiari defended him.

During “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday, the host reacted to video of Rodgers either suggesting or possibly joking that all the flying objects that were recently shot down are simply a distraction from the upcoming release of the deceased sex offender’s client list.

“Needless to say, all this UFO talk has the tin foil hatters going wild, including wack-Packer Aaron Rodgers who offered this hot take on ‘The Pat McAfee Show,’” Kimmel explained before he threw to a clip of Rodgers’ comments.


“I believe that this has been going on for a long time,” Rodgers explained. “Interesting timing on everything. There’s a lot of other things going on in the world. … Did you hear about the Epstein client list about to be released, too?”

“There’s some files that have some names on it that might be getting released pretty soon,” he added.

The host came back on camera and suggested that it “might be time to revisit that concussion protocol, Aaron.”

David Bakhtiari, left tackle for the Packers, caught wind of Kimmel’s monologue attacking his QB and hit back, suggesting it was the ABC late-night host who was possibly on the list.


“Tell me you’re on the Jeffrey Epstein client list, without telling me you’re on the Jeffrey Epstein client list…” Bakhtiari tweeted.

Kimmel previously labeled the Packers QB a “Karen” over his stance regarding the COVID vaccine, the New York Post noted.

“Honestly, the only thing worse than not getting vaccinated when you’re in close contact with other people is letting them think you’re vaccinated when you’re not,” Kimmel shared at the time. “It’s basically the COVID equivalent of ‘the condom fell off.’ Aaron is a Karen, that’s the fact of the matter.”

Rodgers made headlines in 2021 when he was accused of misleading comments about his vaccination status, saying he was “immunized.” However, it was later revealed that he had not been vaccinated.
