"Troy Aikman or Jay Z? You be the judge," one commenter captioned a pic of the white reporter. A second wrote: "Troy Aikman will always look like Jay Z now."
Others have Photoshopped half of Aikman"s face to the rapper"s. Even more, one person Photoshopped Aikman, 50, onto a picture of Jay Z, 47, when the star attended the 2016 Grammys with his wife, Beyoncé.
Aikman, who has yet to respond to the comparison, played quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys for 12 consecutive seasons. He joined Fox Sports as a commentator in 2001.
Aikman isn"t Jay Z"s only possible look-alike. In 2013, a Reddit user posted a photo of a man that shared a striking resemblance with Jay Z. The picture was taken by Sid Grossman in Harlem in 1939 and was found by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture of the New York Public Library.
