Tom Brady Demands Kiss From Son, And It Made Many People Feel Uncomfortable To Watch

Tom Brady is making people squirm again. The, New England Patriot and five-time Super Bowl winner took heat in the past when he was spotted kissing his elderly father on the lips after a game. The show of affection caused a stir on social media as the photo went viral, but Brady dismissed the criticism.

The firestorm has been stirred up all over again, but this time Brady's father wasn't involved. The father got a big smooch on the lips from his 8-year-old son.

For people who believe kissing on the lips is something reserved for lovers, it came as a bit of a shock.

The kiss was captured on 'Tom vs. Time', a Facebook docu-series about the athlete's life as a football player and as a father of three. During the scene in question, Brady is laying down on a table getting a massage.

Tom's son, Jack, comes into the room and asks if he could check his fantasy football scores.

“What do I get?” the father replies.  

Jack walks over to his father and gives Brady a quick kiss on the side of the mouth. As he heads for the door, Brady complains, "That was like a peck."

"You know Jack, everything comes with a cost, bud," the massage therapist jokes as he works on Brady's shoulder.

Jack returns, leans over his father and plants a kiss on his lips. The two press lips for a little longer than most people can stomach. People began tweeting that it was 'uncomfortably long' and 'very disturbing'.

Perhaps the fact that the father is shirtless and oiled up, flat on his back, only made things worse.

"Tom Brady kissing his 11-year-old kid on the lips and then complaining that it was "barely a peck" forcing him to go back for a another, longer, weirder kiss on the lips is an absolute psychopath move," wrote one person.

"In Tom vs Time #TomBrady gives an uncomfortably long kiss on the mouth to his son. Brought me back to Angelina Jolie kissing her brother at the Oscars," said another.

Lyss Stern, a parenting expert, told CBS News that there is nothing wrong with parents and children kissing on the lips.

"If you kiss your kids too much, it’s the wrong thing. If you kiss your kids too little, it’s the wrong thing. If you hug too much — people need to back off and stop parent shaming," she said.

Social worker Carolyn Meyer-Wartels says it's not the kiss on the lips that bothered her, but the fact that it was coerced. She claims it sends children a wrong message.

"I don’t think affection should ever be tied in with a favor," she said. "You don’t do anything with your body because someone else is insisting that you do it in order for you to get what you want."

Some experts say that people are conditioned to think kissing a child on the mouth is cringeworthy and there’s nothing ultimately wrong with an innocent show of affection.

"Kissing one’s child on the lips isn’t confusing — it’s society that confuses things," said Jonathan Alpert, a psychotherapist, to Yahoo Lifestyle. "The act is no different than sleeping in the same bed with a child, but people rarely label that sexual... At the end of the day, people are parenting from afar and the public is drawing a big conclusion based on a fleeting moment of affection."
