Tom Brady led the Tampa Bay Bucs to the Super Bowl with a win on Sunday but he’s catching some heat for not adhering to the league’s Covid-19 protocols during the team’s’ postgame celebration.
While receiving the NFC championship trophy, a maskless Brady spoke for some time during Fox’s broadcast while all his teammates stood around wearing their masks.
"Who would have thought, a home Super Bowl for us… but we did it!"

Some fans were angry with Brady for not wearing his facemask during the team’s postgame celebration.
Rinaldi should have asked Tom Brady why he’s the only Bucs player, coach or staffer who doesn’t have to wear a mask.

Tom Brady is the only Bucs player not wearing a mask?

Would it kill Brady to put on a mask?

So every Buccaneers team member wears a mask except for Tom Brady? Wrong message to the public now.

Who was gonna tell Tom Brady to put on a mask for the post-game ceremony?
