NFL star Aaron Rodgers caused quite a stir recently within ESPN and Disney.

His comments about Jimmy Kimmell on the Pat McAfee Show made the rounds, with the ABC host calling him out on social media.

That was a big conflict of interests, to say the least, as ABC, just like ESPN, is now owned by Disney.

McAfee said on his show that he could understand why Kimmell got mad at the comments, but he later took a big shot at ESPN’s Executive Editor and Head of Event and Studio Production, Norby Williamson, for allegedly trying to sabotage the show.

The former punter claimed that there were some people who were never on board with him joining the company, and accused Williamson of leaking fake ratings reports to hurt the show.

Shortly after, he took to Twitter to share a clip from Tony Montana in that famous scene when he bursts out in a restaurant, calling out everybody in attendance and stating that they don’t dare to be who they want to be and how society needs him because they always need someone to point the finger at.

This isn’t likely to sit well with ESPN or Disney at all.

McAfee has always been unapologetic, which is perhaps one of the reasons behind his popularity and quick rise to stardom on social media.

But testing the boundaries and trying to go against the world’s entertainment leader is a tough bet and one no one might be able to win.
