Cancel Culture Comes for NFL Announcer Tony Romo After On-Air Joke About Tom Brady's Wife

Share

Facing hulking defensive linemen was nothing compared to the attacks former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo faced after making an on-air joke about Tom Brady’s wife.

Romo, now a commentator for CBS Sports, was ad-libbing Sunday afternoon during a one-sided game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Chicago Bears.

Brady threw his 600th career touchdown pass in the first half of the 38-3 blowout, and Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans tossed the ball into the stands at Raymond James Stadium.

A Tampa Bay staffer then went to barter with the fan to give back the ball.

“One of the great negotiations in NFL history,” broadcaster Jim Nantz of CBS said.

Romo then offered his version of how that conversation might have gone:

“Right here, he’s like, ‘We need that ball. That’s 600.’

“‘What? Really?’

“‘So what do you want? A million? No?’

“‘A date with Giselle. A date with Giselle and I’m in.’

“‘Tom? OK, Tom will do it. He’ll allow it. One time. You got it.'”

Romo’s comment about Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, did not go over well for many observers.

As the game ended, Brady made the focus about something everyone could cheer for.

Brady gave his hat to a boy in the stands who was holding a sign that said the 44-year-old NFL legend helped him beat cancer.
