Tom Brady reflects on viral clips from his Netflix roast, expressing concern about their impact on his children, admitting he regrets them.

Tom Brady, the legendary NFL quarterback, recently opened up about the impact of his Netflix roast on his family. During an appearance on @thepivot podcast, Brady discussed how some of the jokes made during the roast had an unexpected and negative effect on his children, leading him to reconsider participating in similar events in the future.

Tom Brady, who shares a son with actress Bridget Moynahan and a son and daughter with his ex-wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen, reflected on the experience, noting that while he enjoyed the jokes directed at himself, the effect on his children was far from amusing. “I liked when the jokes were about me. I thought they were so fun. I didn’t like the way they affected my kids,” Brady shared on the podcast. “It’s the hardest part about… like the bittersweet aspect of when you do something that you think is one way and then all of a sudden you realize I wouldn’t do that again because of the way that it affected actually the people that I care about the most in the world.”


Brady’s comments highlight the challenges public figures face when their personal lives are scrutinized and made the subject of public entertainment. He admitted that his participation in the roast, which was part of Netflix’s “Netflix Is a Joke Fest,” was initially intended as a light-hearted and fun event. However, the unintended consequences for his family have made him reconsider such engagements. “It makes you in some ways a better parent going through it,” Brady continued. “Sometimes you’re naive. You don’t know. When I signed up for that… I love when people are making fun of me.”

The roast, hosted by comedians Kevin Hart and Jeff Ross, featured a lineup of high-profile comedians and Brady’s former teammates, including Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, and Drew Bledsoe. The event saw numerous jokes targeting Brady’s career and personal life, particularly his relationship and subsequent split from Bündchen. Comedian Nikki Glaser, for instance, joked about Bündchen’s new relationship with her jiu-jitsu instructor following the divorce: “Tom Brady. Five-time Super Bowl MVP, most career wins, most career touchdowns,” Glaser quipped. “You have seven rings — well, eight, now that Gisele gave hers back. The only thing dumber than saying yes to this roast was when you said, ‘Hey babe, you should try jiu-jitsu.’”


Reflecting on the experience, Tom Brady acknowledged the importance of humor and laughter, especially in the often intense and high-pressure world of professional sports. “At the same time, I’m happy everyone who was there had a lot of fun. If we’re not laughing about things, we’re crying. We should have more fun. What do we love? We love laughing in the locker room. Let’s do more of that and love each other and celebrate other people’s success.”

Despite the personal impact, the Netflix roast was a significant success for the streaming platform, drawing substantial viewership and engagement. However, Brady’s candid reflections serve as a reminder of the delicate balance between public entertainment and personal privacy, particularly for individuals with families who are indirectly affected by their public personas.
