The NFL held a moment of silence in stadiums all across the league on Sunday in remembrance of those killed in the attacks in Paris, and during the moment of silence in Green Bay, Rodgers and the crowd allegedly heard an unidentified man yelling some type of racial remark against Muslims.

Rodgers spoke to reporters about the ugly incident in pointed terms after the game:

“I was very disappointed with whoever the fan was who made a comment that I thought was really inappropriate during the moment of silence. It’s that kind of prejudicial ideology that I think puts us in the position that we’re in today as a world.”

Extremely well-spoken!

Rodgers didn’t specify what comment he was referring to in the press conference, but according to NBC SportsPro Football Talk, there were multiple accounts of people in the stadium yelling things like “Muslims suck,” and “Death to Muslims.”


Nevertheless, a GREAT job by Olivia Munn‘s BF to call out bad behavior, even if the specific person(s) couldn’t be outed!
