Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers was upset Sunday night, and it wasn’t just because his Packers lost to the Detroit Lions.

After the game Green Bay Packers Quarterback and Chico native Aaron Rodgers spoke out about what he called an “inappropriate” comment during a pregame moment of silence Sunday.

In an interview with ESPN, Rodgers said during the moment of silence for the victims of the terrorist attack in Paris, he heard a fan make a prejudiced comment.

"It’s that kind of prejudicial ideology that I think puts us in the position that we’re in today as a world," Rodgers told ESPN.

The Detroit Lions beat the Packers 18-16 in Green Bay Sunday. Rodgers threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns.
