Megyn Kelly has attacked NFL legend Tom Brady for flaunting his tight butt – and nothing else – after the future Hall of Fame quarterback took a selfie in his underwear.
” Why did he [Tom Brady] post this on the internet? Kelly railed during Tuesday’s broadcast of her SiriusXM podcast “The Megyn Kelly Show.”
“It looks like something you would yell at your teenage son for sending it to his girlfriend.
Brady, 45, days away from announcing his retirement from the league, posted the image on social media on Monday to promote his clothing company Brady.
“Why is he posting pictures of himself in his tiny little underwear? … I don’t know,” an exasperated Kelly said.
“But Tom Brady doesn’t need to promote underwear, he’s worth hundreds of millions of dollars.”
Brady has an estimated net worth of nearly $300 million and has also signed a 10-year, $375 million contract with Fox Sports.
Brady’s almost bare bootleg was mocked by some of his grill pals.
Miami Dolphins star receiver Tyreek Hill joked that Brady was becoming his former Tampa Bay teammate Antonio Brown, the renegade receiver who famous stripped of his shirt during a game last season and left the pitch shirtless.
“Tom retired and went AB 😂,” Hill tweeted in reference to Brown.
Longtime teammate Rob Gronkowski hit out at Brady for groping the way the former Patriots great posed in the photo. The selfie shows Brady sitting on a bed in brown briefs with his hand shielding his private parts.
“I don’t think he did it right…his hand is in the wrong place,” Gronk told Entertainment Tonight. “He covers himself up a bit. You’re not supposed to cover up!
Gronkowski, 33, joked that Brady didn’t reveal what he was “supposed to show”.
“You have to show the package, Tom,” he joked.
Gronkowski admitted he was “shocked” by the photo, which is irrelevant to Brady.
“It’s not characteristic of him, that’s for sure. But that’s what we love about Tom,” he added with a laugh.
“When he throws a curveball, it’s always for fun and it’s always great to see him do that.”
Brady finally hung up his boots last week after 23 seasons.
His last season was tumultuous on and off the pitch. His celebrity marriage to model Gisele Bündchen ended in divorce after 13 years.
Brady’s team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, were ousted in the NFC playoff round by the Dallas Cowboys, ending their quest for a record eighth Super Bowl championship.
Brady announced this week that he will be taking a year off before starting his broadcasting career with Fox in the fall of 2024.
