Tom Brady is already reviled by nearly everywhere that isn’t New England or Florida. This week, he added fuel to the fire by giving a ridiculous answer to a question regarding fatherhood. Here’s what he had to say, and it’s easy to see why folks are up in arms.
Tom Brady’s Biggest Problem
Interview with DriveBrady and Gisele Bundchen discussed raising children. Brady believes that the shared fortune of Gisele Bundchen and him is the best. The hardest part about raising children is. “We have people that clean for us. We have people that make our food. We have people that drive us to the airport if we need that. … We get off a plane and there are people waiting there for us and we get ushered in,”Brady:
The former MVP thinks this distorts his kid’s reality. Brady explains. “That’s my kids’ reality, which is the hard part to say, ‘Guys, this is not the way reality really is. … What can we do about that?’” He and Bündchen still try hard to get their kids to recognize their privilege, but it’s hard.
Nobody liked that
Brady’s honesty is admirable on one hand. There are a lot of inoffensive answers that he could have provided to the softball question, but Brady chose to reply with something that must really bother him.

Forbes on the other side, however, has Brady’s net worth at $83.9 millionSome sources put it at as high $250 million. Bünchen is a millionaire in her own right as well. Brady talks about recognizing privilege, but his entire family won’t need to worry about money for generations. These remarks come straight out of the sunken place and alienate Brady more than the average American.
Twitter has a Field Day
Twitter would ridicule Brady for not winning a close football match, and even for showing his children how much money he has. Users took Brady to task for his comments. One user accused Brady of being an absent father.
He was jokingly accompanied by another.
One user pointed out the absurdity of this entire conversation.
It can’t be easy to teach children the value of money and hard work when they’ll objectively never have to work a day in their life. But that only affects.01 percent. Brady could have simply said that math homework is hard but chose to speak about airport services instead.
