Jimmy Kimmel delivers the opening monologue during the 95th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 12, 2023.
New York Jets Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Tonight Show host Jimmy Kimmel have been in a massive feud in the past week. It all started when Rodgers roasted Kimmel for potentially being on the “Epstein List” that recently came out, to which Kimmel responded harshly while claiming he and his family have received death threats. Tonight, during the College Football National Championship game, Kimmel went on air and went all in on Rodgers, and maybe a bit too far according to fans.
Jimmy Kimmel Rips Into Aaron Rodgers
Kimmel started his rant by referring to the veteran quarterback as “Karen Rodgers,” which many people thought was hilarious. Here are some highlighted quotes from the rant:
He (Rodgers) thinks because God gave him the ability to throw a ball, he’s smarter than everyone else. The idea that his brain is just average is just unfathomable to him He put on that magic helmet and that ‘G’ (Packers logo) made him a genius, Aaron got two ‘A’s’ on his report card. They were both in the word Aaron.

Kimmel has received major backlash from fans who are saying that he only makes a living for telling jokes about other people, to which the talk show host had this to say:
We say a lot of things on this show. We don’t makeup lies, we have a team of people that sort through reputable sources before I make a joke. When I do get something wrong, which happens on rare occasions, I apologize for it, which is what Aaron Rodgers should do, which is what a decent person would do. But I bet he won’t. If he does, you know what I’ll do? I’ll accept his apology and move on.
Kimmel Makes Fun Of Rodgers’ Education
The host also ripped into Rodgers’ education, making fun of him for going to community college, which has angered several football fans.
A guy who went to community college then got into Cal on a football scholarship and didn’t graduate. Aaron Rodgers got two A’s on his report card, and they were both in the word, ‘Aaron.’
The world is now waiting for Rodgers to respond to Kimmel’s comments that many are calling “distasteful.” Who’s side are you on, and do you think this feud has gone too far?
