Olivia Munn posted a Twitter message on Thanksgiving which honored her boyfriend of 2 years, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and fans didn’t seem too happy with her tweet.
After sharing her holiday message on Thursday, the actress received backlash from fans who have reportedly deemed her responsible for the ongoing tension between Aaron Rodgers and his family.
“HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! So many things I’m thankful for, but most of all I’m thankful for my family, friends, @AaronRodgers12 & our 2 pups,” Munn wrote on November 24.
Later that day, CBS 58 shared several posts from fans, including those seen below.
“Did you let [Aaron Rodgers] eat turkey with his parents today?”
“I’m sure [Aaron Rodgers] would have wanted to spend thanksgiving with his family.”
“Did you let [Aaron Rodgers] call mom and dad today?”
Others fans on Twitter blamed Munn for ruining Aaron Rodgers’ career.
In recent weeks, Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been playing as good as he has in the past, and many believe his relationship with Munn may be at the center of his hardships. Several days ago, as the Packers’ record continued to decline, a report was shared by the Bleacher Report, via Deadspin, which claimed Aaron Rodgers hadn’t spoken to his family in 2 years. The report also claimed Aaron Rodgers’ family members allegedly didn’t even have his cell phone number and suggested the quarterback had reportedly skipped his grandfather’s recent funeral.
While it wasn’t revealed whether or not the grandfather of Aaron Rodgers was his maternal grandfather or paternal grandfather, the outlet noted that Rodgers had previously called the unnamed man before each of his games.
Although Aaron Rodgers and other players have been joined at their games by family members and friends in the past, Rodgers’ family has reportedly been informed that they are no longer welcome in Green Bay, Wisconsin. So, if they want to attend a game, they have to buy tickets like any other fan would or request another teammates’ tickets.
“There’s no explanation for him playing any worse,” a source explained to the Bleacher Report.
“People are trying to figure it out. He’s a f**king head case. He knows he’s doing the wrong thing, and he’s so arrogant and prideful that he thinks he can separate his personal life from his professional life, even though all of us know that’s impossible… When you’re talking about real situations that aren’t all of a sudden circumstantial and you f**k over good people, people you’re supposed to love, it’s a sh**ty thing to do and you’re going to get humbled.”
Although the exact root of Aaron Rodgers’ reported family feud has not been revealed, a rumor over the summer claimed Munn was allegedly standing in the way of a reunion. After fans of The Bachelorette watched Jordan Rodgers and his dad, Ed Rodgers, discuss their estrangement from Aaron Rodgers, Us Weekly shared a report about their spat.
During the latest season of The Bachelorette, Jordan Rodgers, who is currently engaged to Jojo Fletcher, spoke about his strained relationship with his brother but didn’t reveal the source of their issue. Instead, Aaron Rodgers’ father simply said, “Fame can change you.”
Olivia Munn, who reportedly “has a strong personality and every meeting she has had with them has gone badly” according to a source, is allegedly at the center of Aaron Rodgers’ reported issues with his family.
“The family says [Aaron Rodgers] stopped talking to them,” the insider alleged. Meanwhile, “[Aaron Rodgers] says they don’t talk because his family doesn’t like Olivia.”
In response to the claims, a source close to Munn said, “[Aaron Rodgers] makes his own decisions and wouldn’t be swayed by Olivia.”)
