AceShowbiz - Tom Brady is a father first and an athlete second. The Patriots quarterback angrily ended his weekly interview on WEEI's "Kirk & Callahan Show" on Monday, January 29 after he learned that one of the radio station's hosts made disparaging comments about his 5-year-old daughter Vivian.
It was last week when Alex Reimer called the little girl an "annoying little pissant" on a separate show while discussing Tom's "Tom vs. Time" documentary. Tom then expressed his disappointment over the comments in this week's interview, saying, "You know, I've tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect," Tom said.
"I've always tried to come on and do a good job for you guys. It's very disappointing when you hear [the comments about my daughter], certainly," he continued. "My daughter, or any child, certainly don't deserve that."
"I'll obviously evaluate whether or not I want to come on this show again," Tom added. "I really don't have much to say this morning. Maybe I'll speak with you guys some other time."
One of the hosts, Kirk Minihane, said that Alex has been suspended. "There's certain things that you understand as an athlete -- you're going to be criticized for what you do, on and off the field, as an individual -- but for a kid to be criticized is unbelievably stupid," Minihane went on saying. "There's no defense for it."
According to HollywoodLife.com, "Tom is absolutely livid that Alex Reimer would make the comment that he did about a five-year-old girl, he's beyond disgusted."
A source told the site, "Tom can take a joke, when it's about him, or even Gisele [his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen], but to slam his daughter, who's just a child and not a public figure, completely crosses the line as far as he's concerned. The folks at WEEI have been bending over backwards to apologize to Tom, but right now he doesn't want anything to do with them."
Tom previously expressed his special relationship with Vivian. "It's the worst -- well, it's not the worst for me, I think it's the worst for my wife who's trying to instill some discipline in her and I just give her whatever she wants," he joked. "But isn't that what men are supposed to do for daughters?"
