After the Patriots lost, Gisele Bundchen attempted to use the opportunity to teach her kids some lessons about life. However, the way she put it angered a lot of people on social media!
The woman wanted to turn the loss into a teachable moment for her and Tom Brady’s kids, but she ended up getting mom-shamed instead.
As you may already be aware, the father and his team ended up losing the big Super Bowl game, and their kids seemed pretty disappointed while watching the whole thing unfold on February 4.
Gisele told their two children, 5-year-old Vivian Lake, and Benjamin, 8, as well as Tom’s son from a previous relationship, 11-year-old Jack that they should not be too upset about the loss and here’s why!
According to the model, sometimes you ‘have to let’ the other team win as well.
It is safe to say that social media users slammed her after hearing what she had to say, calling her ‘elitist’ and ‘patronizing.’
One source revealed that after the Eagles won, Gisele knelt down in front of her crying kids and told them: ‘They have not won in a million years.’
Vivian then blurted out ‘The Eagles won the Super Bowl.’
‘Just this time. Daddy won five times. They’ve never won before. Their whole life, they’ve never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes. Sometimes you have to let other people. We have to share. Sharing is caring.’ the mother explained to the young ones.
The internet was quick to criticize the woman’s words, saying things like: ‘That is garbage parenting. Heaven forbid that you teach your kids failure happens to the best of us and that it does not mean the effort was not worth it.’
A lot more users were furious at the fact that her words were ‘elitist’ and that by saying those things she looked down on the effort of the Eagles who won ‘fair and square.’
But while most people slammed Gisele for her parenting, some also defended her.
‘Oh come on. Don’t be so nit-picky. Let parents parent. Gisele knows her children better than you or me. She was probably a little unprepared for the loss and did not know what to say. She said what she thought was a reasonable answer in the moment. Do not forget, she was sad too,’ one user tweeted.
