The 40-year-old quarterback cut short his weekly interview on the Kirk & Callahan Show on Monday, explaining that he was upset at one of the radio station host's negative remarks about his 5-year-old daughter, Vivian.

Reimer was reportedly reviewing a documentary series, Tom vs. Time, that premiered on Facebook last week and referred to Vivian as an "annoying little puissant". Reimer's show aired Thursday, four days before Brady's weekly morning radio segment with different hosts.

The remark comes a day after Brady, who will lead the Patriots in Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles on February 4, cut his weekly interview short on WEEI. "I've always tried to come on and do a good job for you guys. They certainly don't deserve that". After host Kirk Minihane apologized and said he agreed with the New England Patriots quarterback's comments, Brady said he would have to evaluate if he will return to the show at all.

"Maybe I'll speak with you guys some other time", he said before putting the phone down.

"I certainly hope the guy isn't fired". "I think anyone would feel the same way about their kids". "I think everyone loves a doormat in this league". "And that's what I said". Certainly I went to a big college and there was a lot of attention.

The radio station called Reimer's on-air remarks "mean-spirited" and "indefensible" in a statement released on Monday. "And I can express it and you move on, so", Brady said, CBS News reported.

There has been no comment yet from the Patriots or Entercom.
