Say what?! Tom Brady cut his weekly interview with WEEI radio short on Monday, January 29, after one of the show’s hosts made a disrespectful comment about his adorable 5-year-old daughter, Vivian Lake, with wife Gisele Bundchen.
WEEI personality Alex Reimer was discussing the “Tom vs. Time” Facebook documentary when he remarked “Brady’s in the kitchen, his kid’s being an annoying little pissant.”
The Patriots quarterback then caught wind of the comment and made it known during his weekly interview.
“I’ve tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect,” the Super Bowl MVP said. “I’ve always tried and come on and do a good job for you guys. It’s very disappointing when you hear [the comments about my daughter], certainly. My daughter, or any child, certainly don’t deserve that.”
Cohost Kirk Minihane then apologized, but Tom ended the interview.
“I’ll obviously evaluate whether I want to come on this show again, so I really don’t have much to say this morning,” he concluded. “So, maybe I’ll speak with you guys some other time.”
On Friday, January 26, WEEI announced that Reimer has been suspended indefinitely. Brady has since come to his defense, revealing he doesn’t want him fired over the incident.
Tom was asked about the situation on Super Bowl LII Opening Night and compassionately remarked: "We all have careers and make mistakes. I'd hate for someone to have to change their life over something like that. That was certainly not what he intended."
Hunk with a heart = swoon. The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles will face off at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII, which airs on NBC on Sunday, February 4, at 3:30 p.m. PT.
