Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been a longtime Monday morning guest on Boston sports radio station WEEI and the "Kirk & Callahan" show. That relationship could be ending after Brady's 5-year-old daughter Vivian was called an "annoying little pissant" last week by another host on the station.
WEEI said it suspended Alex Reimer on Friday for the remarks that came during a conversation about Brady's "Tom vs. Time" documentary series that appears on Facebook.
“I’ve tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect,” Brady said Monday, cutting the interview short after a little over two minutes. “I’ve always tried and 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."
After co-host Kirk Minihane apologized to Brady, Brady said he needed to "evaluate whether I want to come on this show again, so I really don’t have much to say this morning. So, maybe I’ll speak with you guys some other time.”
Brady and the Patriots traveled to Minneapolis on Sunday to prepare for the Super Bowl.
