Was Tom Brady upset at Jeff Ross’s roast during the Netflix special?

The Netflix-produced Roast of Tom Brady lived up to its promise of delivering a no-holds-barred comedic takedown of the iconic athlete. Held at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, the event saw stars, press members, and more gather to witness Brady face the fire from a lineup of roasters.

A Cracking Joke

Among the barrage of jokes, one quip during Jeff Ross‘ set seemingly struck a nerve with Brady. Ross recalled the story of Brady walking into Patriots owner Robert Kraft‘s office, boasting, “I’m the best decision your organization has ever made.” He followed it up with a jab referencing Kraft’s 2019 arrest for soliciting prostitution at a spa in Florida, asking, “Would you like a massage?”, as mentioned in a report by Cinemablend.

A Genuine Reaction

Brady’s response to Ross, “Don’t say that shit again,” indicated his apparent displeasure with the joke. While some, including Ross himself, believed Brady took it in jest, comedian Andrew Schulz shared a different perspective on the podcast.

Real Displeasure

Schulz revealed that performers were instructed not to make jokes about Kraft’s incident involving massage parlors. Brady’s intervention during Ross’ set, according to Schulz, was a genuine reaction rooted in pre-show stipulations.

A Bold Move

Schulz commended Brady’s assertive response, describing it as an “alpha ass move.” He also hinted at the dynamics between Brady and his former employer, shedding light on the athlete’s stance on certain sensitive topics.

Crowd Reactions

The “massage” joke elicited a significant reaction from the audience, as did other jabs from roasters like Schulz, Nikki Glaser, and Kevin Hart. With such a lineup, it was inevitable that at least one joke would hit a nerve.

Brady’s Silence

Despite the buzz surrounding the moment, Brady has yet to address it publicly. His reaction during the roast, however, offers a glimpse into the athlete’s sensitivity towards certain topics and his willingness to assert himself when necessary.
