Tom Brady Says He Has No Respect For People Who Abuse, Disrespect, or Bully Women
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is easily one of the top faces of the league year in and year out. He’s also one person who rarely, if ever, speaks out on any topic that doesn’t pertain to football.
Just a few days ago, he ended a press conference early after a reporter tried to ask him about his ‘good friend’ Donald Trump and his comments regarding women that he said was just ‘locker room talk’.
While appearing on WEEI radio on Monday, Brady spoke candidly about domestic violence after New York Giants kicker Josh Brown admitted in journal entries to beating his ex-wife numerous times.
“I grew up with three sisters, I was very fortunate to learn from a loving father and a loving mother how to treat and respect women,” Brady said Monday on WEEI radio. “I have a daughter of my own and domestic violence is a horrible issue. It’s a tragedy when it happens. Any type of abuse or bullying of people who can’t defend or fight for themselves, I have no respect for that.”
Brady wouldn’t directly talk about the Josh Brown incident, but he did continue:
“Like I said, the NFL, they claim to take tough stances and this is their situation. This is their situation to deal with. I’ll let them deal with it. Like I said, I was very fortunate to grow up with sisters, a mother – I condone no part of that. That is absolutely something I would never be a part of or do. It’s a terrible tragedy.
“Obviously, there is a lot of controversy with that,” Brady continued when asked specifically about his suspension versus Brown’s. “I’m trying to stay out of all that. I will let them handle it. I think that is their responsibility. I certainly don’t condone any part of domestic violence. I think it is a terrible, terrible thing. I think the league, they have to handle those types of things.”
