Tom Brady cut his weekly appearance on WEEI in Boston short on Monday after host Alex Reimer made a negative comment about the quarterback's daughter during a show last week.
Reimer was suspended and WEEI's parent company released an apology on Monday that called Reimer's remark "utterly indefensible and mean‐spirited."
Despite the fallout, Brady said that he does not want Reimer to lose his job as a result of the comment.
"I would certainly hope the guy is not fired. I would hate for that to happen," he said. "I just think any player is protective of their kids. I never stayed away from criticism. I understand criticism is part of sports. But I certainly don’t think my children or any other children deserve to be in that. … I think we all have careers and we all make mistakes. I would hate to have someone have to change their life over something like that."
