Aaron Rodgers not happy about being confused for Aaron Hernandez
An ESPN reporter slipped up on live television on Wednesday and referred to Aaron Hernandez as 'Aaron Rodgers.' As you might imagine, Rodgers wasn't thrilled with the mistake.
If you follow Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Twitter, you'll find that he's amused by a of lot things. He seems to like the movie Juwanna Man. He loves spoiling Game of Thrones. He even retweets Jose Canseco once in awhile.
However, one thing that's not amusing to Rodgers is when he's confused for Aaron Hernandez. During a live segment on Wednesday, ESPN reporter Jeremy Schaap referred to Aaron Hernandez as Aaron Rodgers.
Not funny ESPN— Aaron Rodgers (@AaronRodgers12) June 27, 2013
The tweet was notable because it was Rodgers' first tweet in five days. It doesn't seem like Rodgers saw Schaap's mistake happen live, though. The slipup happened around 4:15 p.m. ET and Rodgers didn't tweet about it until over five hours later.
As soon as Rodgers did tweet about it, though, Schaap was quick to respond:
@AaronRodgers12 funny, no. But I did correct myself, right then, which of course the clip does not include.— Jeremy Schaap (@JeremySchaap) June 27, 2013
Rodgers has been in a forgiving mood this offseason -- just ask Brett Favre -- so this will probably be water under the bridge in no time. And let's hope it is because Twitter is a better place when Rodgers is tweeting about Juwanna Man.
