Tom Brady recently opened up about his experience as the main target of a Netflix roast, revealing that some of the jokes had a negative impact on his family. The seven-time Super Bowl champion shared his regrets during an episode of The Pivot Podcast on Tuesday, stating that the jokes affected his children.

The Netflix roast, which took place earlier this month, featured jabs at Brady’s illustrious NFL career as well as his publicized 2022 divorce from supermodel Gisele Bündchen, with whom he shares two children: Benjamin, 14, and Vivian, 11. Brady also has a 16-year-old son, John, from his relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.

“I loved when the jokes were about me; I thought they were so fun. I didn’t like the way they affected my kids,” Brady said. He added further:

It’s the hardest part about … like the bittersweet aspect of when you do something that you think is one way and then all of a sudden you realize ‘I wouldn’t do that again’ because of the way that it affected actually the people that I care about the most in the world.

Comedian Nikki Glaser, who was part of the Netflix roast, explained on The Pat McAfee Show that the comedians had mutually agreed to avoid making jokes about Brady’s children, stating, “It’s not fair to the kids.” However, she noted that jokes about his family were still on the table, emphasizing, “There are no guidelines… There was never a mandate.

Brady made it clear that he wouldn’t participate in another roast, explaining that when he signed up, he thought it would be enjoyable because he loves comedy and laughing at himself. However, he acknowledged that sometimes “you don’t see the full picture and can be naive about the impact.

Despite the negative experience, Brady mentioned that the situation taught him valuable lessons about parenting. “It makes you in some ways a better parent going through it. I’m going to be a better parent as I go forward because of it,” said Brady.

Online reactions, however, have been overwhelmingly critical of Brady’s participation in the roast. Reddit users were quick to point out what they perceived as his naivety. Comments like “I’m really starting to think he didn’t know what a roast was” and “Clearly he didn’t think this roast thing through” reflected a common opinion.

Some were even harsher, with one user writing, “No s*** Sherlock! What a clown. No wonder she left him.” Another added, “I’ve never seen anyone be a bigger baby about being roasted. Go cry into your piles of money and championship rings that you felt were more important than your family 🙄.
