Late-night TV personality Jimmy Kimmel has issued a legal warning to NFL star Aaron Rodgers following comments Rodgers made linking Kimmel to the infamous financier and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Kimmel vehemently denied any association with Epstein and accused Rodgers of endangering his family with his careless remarks.

In a statement on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, Kimmel wrote, “I have never had any interaction with Epstein, nor is my name on any ‘list’ other than the fabricated nonsense that individuals like you seem unable to differentiate from reality. Your irresponsible comments put my family at risk. Persist, and we’ll continue this discussion in court.”

Rodgers’ Controversial Comments

Rodgers, who has a history of making contentious statements on public health and current affairs, mentioned Kimmel during an ESPN appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show.” He said, “There are many people, including Jimmy Kimmel, who are really hoping that list doesn’t come out.”

The Kimmel-Rodgers History

The two celebrities have a past, which may explain why Rodgers singled out Kimmel. Kimmel has previously mocked Rodgers for his comments on Epstein, labeling him a “conspiracy theorist” and suggesting on his show that Rodgers might need to “revisit that concussion protocol.”

A federal judge is anticipated to soon release documents from a lawsuit against Epstein, a convicted sex offender who committed suicide in jail. These documents are expected to reveal a list of Epstein’s associates.
