Aaron Rodgers Delivers Icy Response To Jordan’s Comments On ‘Bachelorette’
Well, we've been waiting for it every since Jordan Rodgers addressed the rift with his super famous brother on one of the most-watched television programs in the country. And now we have it. Sort of. It's the most we're going to get anyhow, so we might as well bask in it.
Aaron Rodgers has officially acknowledged that his estranged little brother is on reality television, and he sounds just about as enthused as you'd expect.
In an interview with WISN 12 News in Milwaukee, Rodgers addressed the fact that Jordan and his brother Luke strongly insinuated on national television that Aaron is at odds with not just his brothers, but his entire family.
"I haven't seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn't really affected me a whole lot," the former Super Bowl MVP told media after Tuesday's training camp.
"As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm just...I'm not going to speak on those things. But I wish him well in the competition," he said.
I WISH HIM WELL IN THE COMPETITION?! Oh man, that's ice cold. I just got the chills reading that.
You've got to love good old Aaron, delivering the dig like only an expert deliverer-of-digs can. To be fair, Aaron is kind of known for being salty when he's faced with answering questions that he doesn't want to answer. So it can hardly be insinuated that he has some level of extra disregard for his youngest brother. It seems like that's just his general attitude towards everyone but Olivia Munn, their dog and a few select Green Bay Packers. A very small few.
Plus he has to know how lucky he is to have avoided talking about it for as long as he has. Obviously this show debuting and airing in the off-season was a major blessing for him. It was also probably better for his brother, who seems genuinely hurt and uncomfortable whenever the subject of his relationship with his older brother is broached.
Obviously it's been observed that appearing on the show is a play on Jordan's part to earn some of his own fame and notoriety, and that he knew his brother would come up early and often during his time on the show. But if the guy wants to be infamous on reality TV, it's really not his problem that Aaron doesn't approve. We can't all be amazing, all-time great NFL quarterbacks. And in Jordan's case, he quite literally couldn't. He tried.
As a public figure, Aaron can't whine too much about his family life being exposed. As difficult as it is to have your dirty laundry aired in a way that you don't want, it's a side-effect of being famous and beefing with your family.
