Journalist Molly Knight receives hate messages after Aaron Rodgers misidentifies her as the author of the WSJ story about her toe


Green Bay Packers

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

Wednesday, a day after joking about having “Covid toe” on the Pat McAfee ShowAndrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal took the Packers’ QB at his word and reported the Covid toe injury as a fact.

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

“I expect a full apology from Molly Knight and her editor. I enjoyed reading this article. It was very, very interesting. But no, I had never heard of toe. COVID before. Pat made a joke about it on the show, and I mentioned yesterday that it was worse than a grass toe and must have been a bone problem. Believe I need to go on the air again and talk about my medical info But yeah I have a fractured toe, I’ve never heard of a COVID toe before, I have no injuries to my feet. It’s just a classic case of disinformation. It’s surprising, coming from what was once a famous journalistic institution. But that’s the world we live in today.

Knight, who shared a link to the Wall Street Journal article on his Twitter page with a sarcastic joke, revealed she was being harassed by angry Packers fans after Rodgers mistakenly identified 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.
