A Few Of The World’s Worst People Complained To The FCC About Tom Brady’s Sideline Swearing



Tom Brady’s habit of swearing on the sidelines has drawn the ire of several people who lead joyless lives. According to the Smoking Gun, the Federal Communications Commission received complaints from a few viewers claiming their children were subjected to an avalanche of naughty words.

The New England Patriots quarterback was captured yelling the Cadillac of curses multiple times by CBS cameras during a Nov. 30 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Though the network did not air audio of the 37-year-old Brady’s exhortations, his curse of choice was obvious.

The FCC received three indecency complaints about Brady (copies of which were released following a Freedom of Information Act request.)

In one complaint, an Indianapolis parent wrote that their “6 year old children know how to read lips even if there is no sound.” The viewer wondered why CBS twice went out of its way to“show Tom Brady screaming the F word on national TV.”

Other moans to the FCC echo the sentiment, saying innocent children shouldn’t see a grown man mouth the F-word.

You’ve got to be kidding me. This people will happily let their kids watch a game that’s going to shorten the lives of pretty much everyone involved but bristle at a MOUTHED word? Seems like there’s a disconnect there. Not to mention the 293 alcohol and penis pill commercials that fill the void between the sanctioned violence.

Surely there are weightier issues for these empty humans to bitch about, like, well, pretty much anything.
