New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady cut an interview short this week when he learned a host of a local radio show said some disparaging remarks about his daughter, according to The Boston Globe.
On Monday, Brady briefly spoke on WEEI, a local radio station in Boston, on the “Kirk & Callahan” show. He called out WEEI after he learned host Alex Reimer made comments about Brady’s 5-year-old daughter, Vivian, after she appeared in the “Tom vs. Time” documentary that was released last week.
Reimer called Vivian an “annoying little pissant” last Thursday, according to The Globe.
That didn’t sit well with Brady.
“I’ve tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect,” Brady said, according to WEEI. “I’ve always tried to 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 said he’s unsure if he will continue to speak in future interviews with WEEI.
Reimer was informed on Friday that he would be suspended indefinitely.12 comments on this story
WEEI scrapped the audio of Reimer’s comments from its website, according to the New York Post.
Brady will head back to practice ahead of his Super Bowl matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday in Minneapolis.
Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen and daughter Vivian plan to watch the game from Minnesota.
According to ESPN, WEEI's parent company, Entercom, signed a multiyear partnership extension with the New England Patriots, which includes two shows — "Patriots Monday" and "Patriots Friday," which are slated to include Brady.
