Peter Gammons, a former Boston Red Sox beat writer who also worked for ESPN, ripped Aaron Rodgers on Thursday after the New York Jets quarterback denied a report he spread Sandy Hook conspiracy theories.

Rodgers pushed back on the claim in a post on X.

“As I’m on the record saying in the past, what happened in Sandy Hook was an absolute tragedy,” Rodgers wrote. “I am not and have never been of the opinion that the events did not take place. 

“Again, I hope that we learn from this and other tragedies to identify the signs that will allow us to prevent unnecessary loss of life. My thoughts and prayers continue to remain with the families affected along with the entire Sandy Hook community.”

Gammons raged at Rodgers’ post.

“Hopefully we never hear from you again and maybe there’s a team in Dharah, Hungary for you to play and spout vile to your full hatred,” he wrote in response.

The issue originated with a CNN report in which Rodgers was accused of sharing Sandy Hook shooting conspiracy theories in a conversation with CNN anchor Pamela Brown at the 2013 Kentucky Derby. Another source was also cited accusing Rodgers of making claims “several years ago.”

The report dropped after Rodgers was named a possible running mate for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s independent presidential campaign.
