On a recent episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," talk show host Jimmy Kimmel mocked NFL quarterback and Super Bowl winner Aaron Rodgers for discussing the possible release of a list of names related to the Jeffrey Epstein, child-trafficking scandal.

"Needless to say, all this UFO talk has the tin foil hatters going wild," said Kimmel in a clip posted to Twitter.

"Including Green Bay 'wackpacker' Aaron Rodgers, who offered this hot take on 'The Pat McAfee Show,'" Kimmel remarked, before throwing to a clip of the quarterback.

Rodgers, appearing on the former NFL punter's podcast, simply asked: "Did you hear about the Epstein client list about to be released?"

"There's some files that have some names on it that might be getting released pretty soon," Rodgers added.

"Might be time to revisit that concussion protocol, Aaron," Kimmel said in response to the clip.

While the segment featuring Rodgers is framed to make his comments sound unusual and out of place, the podcast segment was actually focused on the "wild" stories happening in the world, with the hosts soon joining in on the speculation that the public was being distracted from stories like that of the Epstein list.

"You know, [Ghislaine] Maxwell was the only person ever convicted of trafficking, and nobody who was involved in the trafficking ever went to jail. So, nothing to see here," Rodgers sarcastically remarked.

"No, nothing," host McAfee sarcastically replied.

"Look, there's UFOs flying. We just shot them down!" McAfee added.

Rodgers has been at the center of controversy since his refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine resulted in media attacks, with the player later revealing that unvaccinated players were mistreated by the NFL.

"There was a lot of public shaming that was attempted to coerce people to get vaccinated because not only are you wearing a yellow wristband, you're the only ones wearing masks," Rodgers noted on an episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience."

"There was clearly two classes of players at the facility – there was the unvaccinated and the vaccinated, who had full privileges," he told Rogan.

Rodgers was labeled as a liar by media members who said he claimed to be vaccinated. However, Rodgers actually claimed that he was "immunized," as he was, in fact, allergic to ingredients in the COVID vaccine. The Green Bay Packers player opted to take alternate medicines after consultation with his team, the NFL, and even the aforementioned Rogan.
