The Smoking Gun – A recent televised cursing spree by Tom Brady prompted several viewers to write the Federal Communications Commission and lodge complaints that their lip-reading kids were exposed to the NFL star’s blue language.
During the broadcast of the November 30 game pitting Brady’s New England Patriots against the Green Bay Packers, CBS cameras focused more than once on the frustrated quarterback as he let loose with a string of ‘f***s.’
Though the network did not air audio of the 37-year-old Brady’s exhortations, his curse of choice was obvious.
The FCC received three indecency complaints about Brady.
In one complaint, an Indianapolis parent wrote that their ‘6 year old children know how to read lips even if there is no sound.’ The viewer wondered why CBS twice went out of its way to ‘show Tom Brady screaming the F word on national TV.’
A Pennsylvania grandparent reported that, ‘My 8 year old grandson was watching the game with me and even commented that he should not have said that.’ …
An Iowa resident … noted, ‘They clearly knew he was saying it and so did my 10 year old son.’
Brady, who has not won a Super Bowl in almost a decade, is the father of three young children.
Oh, the humanity! Oh, the horror! When will this national nightmare be over? When will somebody finally put an end to this scourge that’s poisoning the minds of America’s lip reading youth and tearing at the very fabric of our society?
Sure you could argue that if a six year old can read the words off a quarterback’s lips that he probably is already familiar with the word. And maybe make the point that in a world where every 10-year-old in Iowa is walking around with 24 hour internet access on a device in his pocket that he’s probably experienced a lot worse than a superstar athlete inaudibly venting his frustration with a little sailor talk in the heat of battle — but let’s not use that as an excuse.
No, the government has got to step in and do something to put an end to this crisis. Not tomorrow, not after breakfast. Now. Stop worrying about terror attacks and live streamed beheadings and rampant child porn, and make this horrible pandemic caused by Tom Brady‘s salty language priority one. That’s the real threat to our youth.
So thanks good people of Indianapolis, Pennsylvania and Iowa. As you sit there on your couch completely incapable of raising your own children and ask Tom Brady, CBS and the FCC to do it for you, we stand with you. And we are as disappointed in Tom as you are. Poop. Poop mouth…
If he was to give you money out of his wallet, would that ease your pain?
P.S. Don’t think I didn’t notice that dig about the Super Bowl‘s you threw in at the end there, Smoking Gun. At least Brady raises his own kids.
