After a fan reportedly yelled "Muslims suck" during a moment of silence for Paris before the Lions vs. Packers game on Sunday, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers revealed just how disgusted he was by the outburst.
"I must admit, I was very disappointed with whoever the fan was that made a comment that was very inappropriate during the moment of silence," Rodgers said during post-game comments. "It’s that kind of prejudicial ideology that I think puts us in the position we are today as a world.”
