Tom Brady might want to avoid his Twitter mentions for a few days.
In case you missed it, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback recently purchased a new multimillion-dollar boat that he named after an initiative led by his wife, Gisele Bundchen. The impressive vessel was delivered Thursday to a marina in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Predictably, Brady has faced significant criticism in the days since his purchase. In particular, many are outraged over TB12 Inc., Brady’s nutrition and athletic wellness company, receiving a nearly $1 million Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan only for its owner to buy a luxury boat.
Some also have alleged hypocrisy on the the part of Brady, who named the boat after Bundchen’s environmental conservation initiative.

Brady’s up-and-down week as a mega-rich person continued Monday when his Brookline, Mass. mansion was broken into by a homeless man who later was arrested.
