Olivia Munn Blasts ESPN Reporter For Suggesting She's to Blame For Aaron Rodgers’ Slump
"The trolls can have their comments, it's not them I'm calling out, it's the journalists."
Actress Olivia Munn teed off on ESPN reporter Rob Demovsky on Thursday for an article he wrote, suggesting Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers is struggling on the field because of issues at home.
Demovsky, who covers Green Bay for the sports network, reported Rodgers' three-game losing streak could be due to a number of factors, including issues with girlfriend Munn.
"Sometimes it's easy to forget that professional athletes have lives away from the field, and you never know what could be going on in their personal lives," Demovsky wrote.

The assumption clearly crossed a line with Munn, who stars in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, and she fired back over Twitter, turning the table on Demovsky.
Playing it fast & loose w/the journalism @RobDemovsky. Your professional skills are lacking... you must be having personal problems at home.— oliviamunn (@oliviamunn) November 19, 2015

Munn was further irritated that other news outlets gave any time to an Internet commenter who also said she was to blame for Rodger's recent struggles.
