ESPN has been losing subscribers left and right over its decision to become the MSNBC of sports.
The network long ago forgot its core mission.
And now this top ESPN host just bowed to the woke mob in one unbelievable way.
Popular ESPN host Pat McAfee announced that New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers would no longer make his weekly guest appearance every Tuesday for the remainder of the football season.
McAfree’s announcement came after he jumped all over Rodgers for saying left-wing comedian Jimmy Kimmel wouldn’t be happy to see the Epstein client list go public.
“So, Aaron Rodgers Tuesdays, season four, is done,” McAfee stated. “There are gonna be a lot of people that are happy with that, myself included, to be honest with you. The way it ended, it got real loud. I’m happy that that is not gonna be my [social media] mentions going forward, which is great news.”
McAfee said Rodgers was too controversial to put on the air.
“Aaron Rodgers is a hall-of-famer,” McAfee added. “He’s a four-time MVP. He’s a massive piece of the NFL’s story. Whenever you go back and tell it, he will be a huge part of it. We are very lucky to get a chance to chat with him and learn from him. Some of his thoughts and opinions, though, do piss off a lot of people.”
McAfee wrapped up by admitting he was thrilled that the howls of outrage from the woke media would go away now that he canceled Rodgers.
“I’m pumped that that is no longer gonna be every single Wednesday of my life, which it has been for the last few weeks. On Friday, obviously, I threw us into the fire, as well. Forever stand by that. Everything else, though, just can’t do that and not what we wanna be known for. And I’m also pumped that I don’t have to do these types of talks anymore.”
Rodgers addressed the controversy on his final guest appearance by explaining that he never accused Kimmel of showing up on the Epstein client list.
Rather, Rodgers explained that he simply responded to Kimmel’s mocking of him for being a conspiracy theory theorist for thinking the Epstein list existed in the first place.
Since the document release from the Virginia Giuffre lawsuit proved him right, Rodgers said the media was furious that all of his so-called “conspiracy theories” keep coming true.
The future hall of famer said the media’s hatred for him stemmed from the fact that he spoke out against COVID vaccine mandates.
“This is the game plan of the media. This is what they do. They try to cancel. And it’s not just me. It’s nowhere near just me. I mean, you can look at all the different people who’ve been censored from the internet — especially during Covid. They’re canceling everyone on the censorship, using the government to try and censor people. And if that doesn’t work, then they go to name calling,” Rodgers added.
Unfortunately, the cancel culture playbook succeeded since McAfee refused to stand up to the woke mob.
