Before hopping on the team bus to travel to Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady called into the Boston-based radio station, WEEI, like he does every week during the season.

However, as Dearly previously reported, this time Brady admitted he didn’t have much to say after learning one of WEEI’s employees called his five-year-old daughter Vivian “an annoying little pissant.”

He told the hosts of “Kirk & Callahan”:

“I’ve tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect. 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, they certainly don’t deserve that. I really don’t have much to say about it this morning.”

He added that he was evaluating whether he should do the show again. As a result of the incident, Alex Reimer, the man who made disparaging remarks about the quarterback’s daughter was put on an “indefinite suspension.” Rumors regarding Reimer being fired ran rampant.

After arriving in Minneapolis, Brady sat down for more interviews. When he learned that Reimer may be fired for his actions, an ESPN reporter tweeted that the father of three said this:

“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.”

Brady would like Reimer to learn from his mistakes rather than have it ruin his livelihood:

People on Twitter applauded the protective father for being so understanding, despite what the host said about his daughter:

Tom Brady, a class act who loves his children.
