‘Disturbing’ Tom Brady kiss divides the US


WHETHER or not parents should kiss their kids on the lips is a debate that's found itself in the news again after NFL legend Tom Brady was filmed kissing his 10-year-old son for a number of seconds.

Brady is currently starring in a multi-part documentary series called Tom vs. Time ahead of his eighth Super Bowl on Monday.

But it's a scene from the third part of his docuseries, uploaded to Facebook earlier this week, that has sent social media into a spin - and it features him and his 10-year-old son John "Jack" Edward Thomas kissing.

The scene in question features Brady, 40, lying on a table getting a massage when Jack pops his head in.

"I was wondering if I could check my fantasy team?" Jack asks him.

Brady responds, "What do I get?"

Half-laughing, Jack sidles up to his dad and pecks him on the lips.

"That was like a peck," Brady says.

Half walking away, Jack lets out a sigh and an eye roll before walking back to his dad and kissing him again for a few more seconds.

Immediately after kissing Brady, he keeps discussing his fantasy team with the NFL star's masseuse and wipes his mouth with his shirt.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter exploded after seeing the kiss as commenters weighed in on whether or not it was appropriate.

The full third part of the documentary can be seen below.


This isn't the first time Brady's documentary Tom vs. Time has landed the family in the news.

Late last month, American radio host Alex Reimer was suspended from his show after he called Brady and Gisele Bündchen's daughter "an annoying little piss ant" on-air.

Reimer made the comment on Boston-based WEEI's Kirk & Callahan show last week while discussing the NFL star's documentary.

Patriots quarterback Brady, 40, called in for his weekly appearance on the show on Monday morning local time, but he cut the interview short - although not before having a go at the hosts.

The father of Vivian, five, as well as Benjamin, eight and John, 10 (the latter from a previous relationship) said he was disappointed by the remarks and is now debating his future with the sports show, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

"I've tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect," Brady said.

"I've always tried and come on and do a good job for you guys. It's very disappointing when you hear that, certainly. My daughter, or any child, certainly don't deserve that.

"I really don't have much to say about it this morning."

Brady then hung up and Reimer was later suspended.
