Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers spoke out against prejudice after hearing an inappropriate comment during a moment of silence held to honor the Paris terror attack victims at Sunday's NFL game.

In an interview with ESPN after the Packers' loss to Detroit, Rodgers said he heard a fan make a prejudiced comment and "was very disappointed with whoever the fan was."

There were several social media accounts of fans in Green Bay saying things like "Death to Muslims" and "Muslims suck," but it is unclear if those were the comments Rodgers heard.

"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 remarks weren't the only disruptors during Sunday's game. One group of fans attempted to start a "Go Pack Go" chant during the moment of silence, prompting another fan to yell for them to "have some respect," NBC Sports reports.
