Tom Brady is catching a lot of heat on social media after people nervously watched a video of him jumping off a cliff with his six-year-old daughter Vivian in Costa Rica over the weekend. (Video Below)
The superstar quarterback captioned the Instagram video, "If Vivi is going to be an Olympic champion one day, it probably won’t be in synchronized diving. Daddy always gives her a 10 though!"
He held his nervous daughter's hand and asked, "Ready?" Then, just as his daughter appeared to hesitate, Brady jumped and pulled the young girl off the cliff with him and she appeared to land awkwardly in the water below. She was unhurt, but many people on social media found it disturbing to watch.
Even Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson commented, "You KNOW I have complete faith in you as a man, friend, player and father – but this just gave me anxiety. Geeezus." Others called it "irresponsible" and "bad parenting." Of course, many defending Brady and the jump and said critics were simply overreacting.
- Everything Tom Brady does gets criticized, especially by non-Patriots fans.
- On the other hand, the little girl looks nervous and fell awkwardly as she was pulled off the cliff. She could have been hurt.
- Brady knows his daughter better than any of us. Maybe we should lay off him? He's a good dad and he wouldn't have let anything bad happen to her.
