Tom Brady Seemingly to Forgive Radio Host Who Insulted Daughter: ‘We Make Mistakes’

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady again spoke out on a quarrel between a WEEI host and his 5-year-old daughter.

Brady on Tuesday, Jan. 30, appeared to forgive the radio host a day after he cut a WEEI interview short.

“Sometimes we say things that we shouldn’t say or we make mistakes, and that happens. And I can express it and you move on, so,” Brady said, CBS News reported.

Brady said, “Life’s too short” after someone asked if he’ll put the comments behind him.

Brady also said he didn’t want to see the WEEI host, Alex Reimer, fired over his comments. Reimer referred to Brady’s daughter, Vivian, as an “annoying little pissant” during a Facebook documentary on Brady, called “Tom Vs. Time.”

On the WEEI show Monday, Brady told the hosts: “I’ll obviously evaluate whether I want to come on this show again, so I really don’t have much to say this morning. Maybe I’ll speak with you guys some other time.”

“Absolutely fine, we understand,” the host told the five-time Super Bowl champion.

“Have a good day,” Brady said before signing off.

“I understand that criticism is part of sports, but I certainly don’t think that you know my children or any other children really deserve to be in that,” Brady said of Reimer’s comment.

Brady’s teammates and his players of the Philadelphia Eagles agreed. “Any child in the media should be off limits,” said Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz.

“I think for a lot of us on this team, if it wasn’t for our family, we wouldn’t care to be here playing football,” said Patriots free safety Devin McCourty.

WEEI released a statement on Reimer’s remark, saying they were “disappointed and embarrassed,” Boston.com reported.

WEEI and Entercom’s statement Monday called Reimer’s comments “utterly indefensible,” and added that “mean-spirited commentary directed in anyway at children is wholly inappropriate,” according to the report.
