Don’t get Jordan Rodgers wrong, he fully supports donating, spreading awareness and offering support to those affected by the wildfires that have spread through California — much like his brother, Aaron Rodgers pledged to do Wednesday.
The Packers quarterback announced he has pledged $1 million to help with relief efforts after teaming up with the North Valley Community Foundation for the Aaron Rodgers NorCal Fire Recovery Fund. In a video posted on Twitter, Aaron Rodgers said for every retweet, State Farm would donate a dollar — up to $1 million — for the relief fund, as well.
Jordan Rodgers later sent out a tweet both encouraging donations, but also scorning his brother.
“PLEASE DONATE, SPREAD AWARENESS & SEND LOVE,” he wrote. “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.”

The Rodgers’ family feud has been well documented. In a 2017 interview with the New York Times, father Ed Rodgers said he is not on speaking terms with his son, Aaron. Jordan Rodgers, who appeared on a season of The Bachelorette, admitted he was very close with his oldest brother Luke, but that Aaron is estranged from the rest of the family.
But Aaron Rodgers has yet to weigh in. In a 2016 interview with People, he said he didn’t like to talk publicly “about some family matters.”
“As far as those kinds of things go, I’ve always found that it’s a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I’m just — I’m not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition,” he told the magazine.
