Tom Brady says roast affected his kids, ‘wouldn’t do it again’

Tom Brady is sharing his true feelings about his Netflix roast earlier this month, admitting that some of the jokes shared during the event had a negative impact on his kids.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion joined The Pivot Podcast for an hour-long interview released Tuesday, during which he spoke with hosts Ryan Clark, Fred Taylor, and Channing Crowder about his life and career post-football.

Toward the end of the conversation, former Jaguars running back Fred Taylor asked Brady what his biggest takeaway was after going through with the roast.

“I loved when the jokes were about me, I thought they were so fun,” Brady said, before adding, “I didn’t like the way it affected my kids.”

The 46-year-old didn’t elaborate on which jokes he felt were problematic, but there were several quips made during the event surrounding his divorce from ex-wife Gisele Bündchen.

“It’s the hardest part … like the bittersweet aspect of when you do something that you think is one way and then all the 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,” Brady continued.

In the wake of “The Roast of Tom Brady,” a source told People Magazine that Bündchen was “deeply disappointed” in what she felt were “irresponsible” jokes made during the event.

Jeff Ross, an executive producer of the roast and one of the comedians who performed, later confirmed that the football legend was mostly unaware of what was going to be said.

“I kept him in the dark on a lot of the surprises, and he didn’t hear anybody’s jokes,” Ross said on The Rich Eisen Show the day after the roast.

Brady added that he may have been “naïve” about what was going to happen on-air, and said it was a good lesson for him as a parent.
