Tom Brady Hammers Domestic Abusers

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady didn’t hold back when discussing his thoughts on domestic violence.

The Super Bowl champion discussed the topic during a Monday appearance on the WEEI show “Kirk & Callahan Show.”

He said the following:

I grew up with three sisters, I was very fortunate to learn from a loving father and a loving mother how to treat and respect women. I have a daughter of my own and domestic violence is a horrible issue. It’s a tragedy when it happens. Any type of abuse or bullying of people who can’t defend or fight for themselves, I have no respect for that. Like I said, the NFL, they claim to take tough stances and this is their situation. This is their situation to deal with. I’ll let them deal with it. Like I said, I was very fortunate to grow up with sisters, a mother. I condone no part of that. That is absolutely something I would never be apart of or do. It’s a terrible tragedy.
