It doesn’t seem like any amount of water could put out the flames of this family drama.

Bachelor star Jordan Rodgers tore into his brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, for tweeting his plan to donate $1 million dollars to help victims of the California wildfires.

Jordan calls the gesture an “act” and claims Aaron didn’t call his own family after the wildfires began approaching their home.

“When your own Mom is home alone during the fires, car packed ready to evacuate, & you miss the fundamental first step of compassion; calling your parents to make sure they are safe,” he tweeted on Aaron’s post.

“Everything else just feels like an act,” he adds. 

Luke Rodgers, the oldest brother of the family also weighed in Wednesday. 

“Smells like cowardice this morning…,” he wrote on Twitter.

He also commented back to someone asking if he donated to the victims of the wildfires.

“Not only did I donate but I called to check on my parents” he tweeted.

This family feud is not new news. We’ve known about their fall out since Jordan appeared on JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette in 2016. Before a hometown visit, he told the Fletcher that he and his brother don’t have a relationship.

“It’s just kind of the way he’s chosen to do life and I’ve chosen to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother,” he explained.

Aaron had a problem with family issues being brought up on the show. Later he told MISN 12 News that he found it “a little inappropriate (for Jordan) to talk publicly about some family matters.”

It’s safe to say Thanksgiving at the Rodgers house this year is going to be awkward.
