Giants’ Jacobs Tells Gisele Bundchen to “Stay Cute and Shut Up” [Video]
Brandon Jacobs is apologizing for comments he made about Gisele Bundchen on Tuesday. The Giants’ running back told reporters at MetLife Stadium about Gisele,
“She just needs to continue to stay cute and shut up.”
He went on the “The Doug Gottlieb Show” on ESPN Radio on Wednesday to issue a formal apology for telling Tom Brady’s wife to shut up.
“Given the fact that it’s a colleague of mine’s wife, I do apologize for saying that, because I shouldn’t have said that. It’s his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else.”
He didn’t apologize for saying she was cute though, insisting it was a compliment.
“No question, he should take that as a compliment,” Jacobs said of Brady. “If he finds something wrong with that, then that’s his problem.”
The scandal that prompted Jacobs to tell her to shut up in the first place was right after the game Gisele Bundchen was caught on camera complaining about the Patriots receivers dropping too many balls during the Super Bowl.
“My husband cannot f—– throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times,”
Patriots receivers Wes Welker, Deion Branch and tight end Aaron Hernandez all dropped some pretty easy catches during the Patriots loss to the Giants. Tom Brady has been silent on the dropped passes and instead defended his teammates.
Of Welker he said,
“Wes is a phenomenal player and a teammate. I love that guy.”
Do you think that Gisele Bundchen should just stay cute and shut up or that she has a right to stick up for her husband?
