Patriots’ Tom Brady draws backlash over cliff jump post
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has some people questioning his parenting skills after posting a video of himself and his daughter jumping off a cliff while on vacation in Costa Rica.
Brady posted the video to his Instagram Saturday with the caption, “If Vivi is going to be an Olympic champion one day, it probably won’t be in synchronized diving.” He added, “Daddy always gives her a 10 though!”
The video shows the pair counting down to the jump, but 6-year-old daughter Vivian hesitates and Brady pulls her with him when he jumps.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson commented on the post, “You KNOW I have complete faith in you as a man, friend, player and father – but this just gave me anxiety. Geeezus.”
Sean John Combs posted an emoji of a crying smiley face. Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry also posted the emoji of a crying smiley face.
Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre was not impressed, “She is a 10 but old dad gets a (thumbs down)”
In 2015 Brady shared a Facebook video of himself jumping off a cliff again on vacation in Costa Rica. He drew backlash then, as well, with people questioning whether the quarterback should be risking injury in the off-season.
