Tom Brady cuts off interview over comment about daughter
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady cut short his weekly interview with Boston sports radio WEEI on Monday morning over a comment one of the station’s host had made about his 5-year-old daughter Vivian.
“I’ve tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect,” Brady said, according to ESPN. “I’ve always tried and come on and do a good job for you guys. It’s very disappointing when you hear that, certainly. “My daughter, or any child, certainly don’t deserve that.”
Brady appears on WEEI’s “Kirk & Callahan Show” each week. Alex Reimer, who sometimes appears on that show, called Brady’s daughter “an annoying little pissant” last week while discussing the “Tom vs. Time” documentary on another radio show.
Brady ended Monday’s phone interview by saying, “I really don’t have much to say this morning. Maybe I’ll speak with you guys some other time.”
He also said he would evaluate if he would appear on the station again.
One of the hosts of the show, Kirk Minihane, said on air Monday that Reimer had been suspended for the rest of Super Bowl week, according to ESPN.
