Aaron Rodgers critical of fan during moment of silence
Sunday November 15th, 2015

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers criticized fans who shouted inappropriate comments during a pregame moment of silence Sunday.

The Packers held a moment of silence for the victims of Friday’s terror attacks in Paris before their game against the Detroit Lions. During the moment, several people yelled “go Pack go,” and one yelled “Muslims suck,” instead of remaining silent, according to a crowd audio feed picked up by Deadspin.

In his postgame press conference, Rodgers expressed his disappointment with a fan who made a “prejudicial” comment during the moment of silence.

This wasn’t the only incident of its kind on Friday; at Madison Square Garden in New York, a fan yelled “Let’s Go Rangers.”
