Tom Brady ends weekly radio interview early after host calls his daughter "an annoying little pissant"
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady abruptly ended his weekly interview with Boston radio station WEEI on Monday, saying he was disappointed to hear news about a host that made a remark about his daughter.
Brady, who appears on the "Kirk & Callahan Show" each week, was referring to WEEI employee Alex Reimer calling his five–year–old daughter “an annoying little pissant."
Reimer made the remark on a different show when discussing the "Tom vs. Time" documentary on Facebook.
"Well, I think that – I've tried to come on this show for many years and have showed you guys a lot of respect. I've always tried to come and do a good job for you guys, so it's very disappointing when you that, certainly," Brady said. "My daughter, or any child, they certainly don't deserve that."
The co-host, Kirk Minihane, then apologized to Brady and WEEI announced that it has suspended Reimer for the comments.
"I'll obviously 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," he said.
Brady was asked during Monday night’s media session about the interview and the host’s comments.
