American football star Tom Brady is being trolled by members of the military after he was criticised for comparing the NFL season to deployment.
Brady made the awkward, tone-deaf comments on his podcastLet’s Go!, which he hosts with Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray. The episode also featured guest Kevin Durant who plays basketball for the Brooklyn Nets.
During their discussion, Brady explained what going back into an NFL season feels like for him, but many took offence to the comparison.
Brady explained: “I almost look at like a football season like you’re going away on deployment in the military, and it’s like, ‘Man, here I go again.’ There’s only one way to do it.”
A few days after the podcast aired, Brady apologised for his clumsy comparison in a press conference. But, the damage was already done and the star is now facing trolling from military members after an Instagram page shared screengrabs of people posting hilarious messages to the athlete using military language.
