NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers received a harsh response from his brother Jordan (The Bachelorette) after the Green Bay Packers’ player made a public plea for financial donations to help those victimized in the California wildfires. As Aaron’s video went viral across social media and many responded with praise for his charity efforts, his brother Jordan was not impressed.
Jordan Rodgers responded to the viral tweet with a message of his own that accused Aaron of failing to do a simple welfare check on his own parents or make sure they were safe. The allegation is in stark contrast to other celebrity figures who desperately searched for their loved ones such as actor Charlie Sheen who was so fearful his parents were in jeopardy, he begged the public to help find them.
As Aaron Rodgers promoted the North Valley Community Foundation with the hashtag #retweet4good and announced he pledged $1 million to the organization, Jordan accused him of failing to demonstrate the simplest forms of compassion.
Aaron Rodgers stated the following in his video plea that has currently received nearly six million views.
“Please take a minute to watch this and if you can, take a few seconds to retweet this using the #retweet4good
All the money goes to a great organization for the immediate needs and the recovery efforts for the #CampFireParadise
Thank you ?? #ButteStrong #payitforward”
Jordan Rodgers didn’t mince words in his response. You may see both Aaron Rodger’s original tweet and Jordan Rodgers’ condemning response in the tweet below.
PLEASE DONATE, SPREAD AWARENESS & SEND LOVE.
But when your own Mom is home alone during the fires, car packed ready to evacuate, & you miss the fundamental first step of compassion; calling your parents to make sure they are safe….
Everything else just feels like an act. https://t.co/glzDfqwsKz

While one can easily understand how distressing it would be to have a loved one caught in the midst of the California wildfires, some are taking issue with Jordan’s public rebuke of his brother.
Twitter users have fired back that the public community was not the best place to have the conversation and a few accused Jordan of trying to use his brother’s plea for self-promotion and a few minutes of fame.
The complaints haven’t deterred Jordan as his tweet still stands. Though many left comments, he hasn’t responded to them.
There’s no word on what the Rodgers’ family are doing for Thanksgiving.
