Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers' Response To This Anti-Muslim Comment Made Him A Winner Despite Sunday's Loss

Nailed it.

Though the Packers came up short against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, quarterback Aaron Rodgers walked away a winner.

Before the game started, Lambeau Field went silent — honoring those affected by the terrorist attacks in Paris, France on Friday night.

During the moment of silence, someone in the stands took the opportunity to shout out a defamatory comment about Muslims, Mashable reports.

So in a press conference following the game, Rodgers threw a flag at the offender.

"I think it's important to do things like [the moment of silence]," Rodgers told ESPN's Bob Holtzman. "We're a connected world — you know, six degrees of separation.


"I must admit, though, I was very disappointed with whoever the fan was who made a comment that I thought was really inappropriate during the moment of silence. It's that kind of prejudicial ideology that I think puts us in the position that we're in today as a world," Rodgers added.

Moreover, when pressed about what the fan said to anger Rodgers, he declined to repeat it — thus silencing it right then and there.

"That's all I'm going to say about that," he said, according to ESPN.

Some have called this Rodger's most important call of the game, and it's one we won't be challenging.
