It seems like Gisele Bundchen has heard enough.
The supermodel took to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to address the backlash she’s received for some of her reported postgame remarks about Super Bowl 52.
“Just to be clear,” she wrote. “No one ‘let’ anyone win. People win because of their own merit. Tired of people twisting my words to create drama that doesn’t exist!”
Bundchen, who has been married to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for nearly nine years, is referring to the conversation she had with her children following the Patriots’ 41-33 loss to the Eagles.
According to USA Today’s Josh Peter, Brady and Bundchen’s 8-year-old son, Benjamin, and 5-year-old daughter, Vivian, were both visibly upset at the result of the game. In an effort to comfort the crying pair, the mother of two reportedly told them, “Sometimes you have to let other people win.”
“Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes,” Bundchen continued, according to Peter. “We have to share. Sharing is caring.”
The story circulated on social media Monday and received a critical response.
“The idea that Tom Brady or the Patriots ‘let’ the Eagles win the Super Bowl is ridiculous, of course, and Bundchen shouldn’t be peddling that to kids,” Fox News’ Karol Markovitz wrote. “It teaches them to expect that winning is something that other people will sometimes grant them, instead of something they earn on their own. It’s a lesson their father doesn’t demonstrate on the field at all.”
