Reporter Molly Knight Responds to Aaron Rodgers Incorrectly Calling Her Out

Aaron Rodgers sometimes makes mistakes.

Reporter Molly Knight responded to Aaron Rodgers following him misidentifying her as the person who wrote The Wall Street Journal’s ‘COVID toe’ article.

Rodgers vehemently denied that he has “COVID toe.”

“It’s actually called disinformation when you perpetuate false information about an individual,” Rodgers said on Wednesday. “I have a fractured toe. So I expect a full apology from Molly Knight and whoever her editors was. I did get a kick out of reading that article. That was very, very interesting. But, no, I never heard of COVID toe before. Pat made a joke about it on the show, and I mentioned yesterday that it’s, you know, worse than a turf toe, and it must be a bone issue.

Reporter Molly Knight responded on Twitter:

“Today I tweeted a link to a Wall Street Journal story about Aaron Rodgers, then went to a spin class and then the local homeless feed where I volunteer. Apparently Rodgers mentioned me by name in a press conference, because when I finished my work my social media feeds were full of unpleasant comments from Rodgers’ fans. I didn’t write the article Rodgers is upset about, but I guess in the grand scheme of things it’s not a big deal. I would like to thank Aaron for directing traffic to my Twitter feed, where I am raising money for blankets for our unhoused neighbors. It’s getting cold, and the number of people who need help in Southern California has ballooned in recent years, so every bit of awareness helps.”

Molly Knight did post the link on Twitter, but did not write the story on Rodgers COVID Toe.

Rodgers demanded an apology from the WSJ.

Now he owes Molly Knight an apology.

Ironic.
