Patriots and Buccaneers fans may have a understandable affinity for Tom Brady, but as he learned Thursday ahead of his 10th Super Bowl appearance, the rest of the football-loving world is decidedly less enamored him and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen.
‘F*** you Tom Brady,’ he said while reading mean tweets about himself during Jimmy Kimmel‘s signature recurring bit. ‘I hope this loss [on Sunday] depresses you so bad that you can hardly have sex with your supermodel wife in your giant mansion.’
Brady, 43, did not take the bait. Instead he mimed zipping his lips and said ‘I have no comment for that.’

The scripted abuse didn’t stop there.
‘Tom Brady seems like the kind of man who doesn’t know how to use a wrench,’ read another tweet.
Brady conceded: ‘It’s kinda true.’
Another Twitter user poked fun at Brady’s famously dimpled chin.
‘Hi, I’m Tom Brady and I’m a crybaby and I have a butthole in my chin.’
‘Can we be real for a moment?’ said Brady, reading another tweet. ‘Is there really anyone you’d rather see dropped in vat of rendered bacon fat than Tom Brady?’
One critic kept it fairly straightforward: ‘I hope everyone has a great Monday except for Tom Brady, f*** you Tom Brady.’
At this point, Brady’s calm veneer began to erode.
‘F*** you,’ he replied quietly.
Brady was self deprecating, saying it’s ‘kinda true’ that he doesn’t know how to use a wrench

Some of the criticism lobbed at Brady struggled to make a clear, concise point.
‘Tom Brady you suck booty,’ Brady continued. ‘You ugly… you suck… you [look like] a fat lady with a flabby arm and a little girl… but (sic) face #TomBrady #suck.’
Brady, matching wits with his detractor, responded: ‘you suck.’
He also showed some vulnerability in the face of the online hate.
When one person wrote ‘f*** you Tom Brady you fat b**** I hope you cry,’ he quickly admitted, ‘I do cry, too.’
‘Do you ever watch/listen to tom brady speak and think to yourself ‘this is the personification of an actual butthole taking a s***?’ asked another Twitter user.

One critic wished for Brady to be hurt while acknowledging that he didn’t really deserve such a punishment.
‘I hate Tom Brady so much, but I have no legit reason to,’ the Twitter user wrote. ‘He’s a nice guy, BUT I HOPE THEY BREAK HIS LEGS.’
‘Tom Brady really is a good QB but he will forever be known as a d***less b****,’ Brady said, reading the penultimate tweet.
Brady did ultimately get offended, but not until the final contributor Tweeted: ‘F*** you Tom Brady I hope your dog eats chocolate and gets really sick and throws up on your socks.’
Astonished, Brady snapped: ‘That’s f***ed up.’
‘That’s Tom’s line, and you crossed it,’ laughed Kimmel, who managed to turn a handful of tweets from unpaid writers into a two-minute segment.
