Tom Brady abruptly cut short a radio interview after one of the station's hosts referred to his 5-year-old daughter Vivian Brady as "an annoying little pissant".
The 40-year-old New England Patriots quarterback was seeing red after WEEI's on-air personality Alex Reimer made the statement last week on a different show, according to the Daily Mail UK.
Reimer made the remark after watching Brady's Facebook documentary series, "Tom vs. Time."
The scene that Reimer objected to shows Brady at home with his family, including wife Gisele Bundchen and daughter Vivian, who played with her father during a brief kitchen scene.
"It was Patriots porn," Reimer said about the first episode.
"I thought the first scene was so staged, where Brady is in the kitchen, his kid is being an annoying little pissant," Reimer said.
"Pissant" is an archaic term used to describe an insignificant or contemptible person
Reimer was suspended and sent home from Minnesota, the site of Super Bowl 52.
"It was very disappointing to hear that. My daughter or any child certainly does not deserve that," Brady told WEEI's Kirk & Callahan before abruptly ending the interview on Monday morning.
"I really don't have much to say this morning," Brady continued. "Maybe I'll speak with you guys some other time," he said, before ending the interview.'
Brady was so upset that is considering whether he will continue with the weekly interviews on WEEI.
Reimer, 26, was named one of Boston Spirit magazine's "local heroes" for coming out as gay on the radio.
Reimer has used his platform to lash out at traditional families in the past. Media images of traditional families are offensive to some gay people.
Outraged social media users called for Reimer's termination for attacking a 5-year-old child.
