A cliff jump by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his 6-year-old daughter was either an exhilarating adventure or an “irresponsible” parenting decision, depending on who watched the footage.
Brady shared a video on Instagram of himself and daughter Vivian leaping from a cliff in Costa Rica during a recent vacation.
He captioned the post, “If Vivi is going to be an Olympic champion one day, it probably won’t be in synchronized diving.” He added, “Daddy always gives her a 10 though!”
In the video, Brady asks his daughter, “Ready?” The two hold hands and Brady counts to three; Vivian hesitates before he jumps, and his daughter is pulled in after him.
The 41-year-old comments under the video, “I didn’t want to be the first Brady to fall off a cliff!”

The video shocked some, who thought Vivian, whose mom is Gisele Bündchen, could have swung too close to the rocks had Brady not been holding onto her.
Even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson weighed in.
He wrote: “You KNOW I have complete faith in you as a man, friend, player and father – but this just gave me anxiety. Geeezus.” He added a laughing/crying emoji and two applause emojis.
Others were more pointed in their criticism on Instagram.
“It looks like he yanked her like a rag doll,” said one person. “That was scary.”
Twitter user @DTCahill goes on a two-fisted attack of the leap, calling it “irresponsible.”
Anything for a selfie …
This irresponsible act follows Brady’s dimwitted wife posting pics of their children riding horses without helmets.

Still other fans likened what they saw to abuse.
“Bad parenting? His daughter almost broke her arm. NFL should consider punishment,” wrote @newBsearl.
“Bruh she lucky she didn’t hit rock,” wrote @BrisFrog.
Other fans balked at the criticism, some citing the height of the cliff.
“I don’t see the big deal surrounding this,” said @BassBass888.
I don't see the big deal surrounding this. Jees it wasn't much of a "Cliff" .
One Twitter user said that people are sensitive these days and that father and daughter were OK.
“Relax people,” wrote @activethinknet. “She was fine. And is fine. I can remember stuff like that back in the 60’s.”
Relax people. She was fine. And is fine. I can remember stuff like that back in the 60’s. Neg reactions are off spring of PC BS.
