Jordan Rodgers rips brother Aaron Rodgers over response to California wildfires

Jordan says Aaron never called to check in on his mom and dad.

It's been long reported that Aaron Rodgers doesn't have a great relationship with his family, and some of his dirty laundry was aired to the public on Wednesday by his brother, Jordan.  

It all started after Aaron posted a video to social media saying he donated $1 million to victims of the deadly California wildfires, and urged people to help in any way they can. 

Rodgers' family is from Chico, California, which is just 13 miles west of Paradise, the city of 28,000 that was completely destroyed by the deadly Camp Fire that continues to burn in the area. 

Jordan feels that Aaron's plea for help is an "act" because, as he tweeted, Aaron never called home to check on his parents while their car was packed in preparation to evacuate. 

This isn't the first time the Rodgers family laundry has been aired to the public. In January 2017 Rodgers' father, Ed, told the New York Times that Aaron hadn't spoken to them since 2014. 

And during Jordan's rise to stardom on ABC's The Bachelorette, he wasn't shy about bashing his brother.

"It’s just kind of the way he’s chosen to do life," Jordan said in the 2016 interview with People. "I choose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother (his other brother Luke). It’s not ideal."

Of course, all this Rodgers family drama is being publicized during Thanksgiving and right before Rodgers and the Packers take on the Vikings on Sunday night.
