Aaron Rodgers has a beef with reporter Molly Knight over an article that she didn’t even write.

On Wednesday, a day after he joked about having “Covid toe” on the Pat McAfee Show, the Wall Street Journal’s Andrew Beaton took the Packers QB on his word and reported the Covid toe injury as fact.

While explaining that he had a broken toe and not Covid toe, Rodgers misidentified Molly Knight as the writer of the article while blasting the Wall Street Journal for sharing “disinformation.”

“I expect a full apology from Molly Knight and whoever her editor was. I did get a kick out of reading that article. That was very, very interesting. But no I had never heard of COVID toe before. Pat made a joke about it on the show, and I mentioned yesterday that it’s worse than a turf toe and it must be a bone issue. I can’t believe I again have to come on the air and talk about my medical information. But yeah. I have a fractured toe, I’ve never heard of COVID toe before, I have no lesions on my feet. That’s just a classic case of disinformation. It’s surprising, coming from what used to be a reputable journalistic institution. But that’s the world we live in these days.”

Knight, who shared a link to the Wall Street Journal piece on her Twitter page along with a sarcastic joke, revealed that she was being harassed by angry Packers fans after Rodgers misidentified her as the author of the WSJ story.

Knight even asked WSJ writer Andrew Beaton to publicly state that she was not the author of the article.
