Tom Brady isn’t afraid to show affection to his kids.
However, it seems the New England Patriots quarterback’s habit of kissing his youngsters on the lips has left a few feeling uncomfortable. Earlier this week, the NFL stud’s Facebook docuseries, Tom vs. Time, dropped its third episode.
In it, Gisele Bundchen‘s husband is seen requesting a smooch from his oldest kiddo, John (who often goes by Jack). Not only did Brady get a “peck” from his boy, but when he requested a longer kiss, the youth happily obliged. Here’s how the moment played out…
When John popped his head in to interrupt his dad’s massage to discuss his “fantasy team,” the 40-year-old jokingly asked:
“What do I get?”
Jack walked over and gave his dad a kiss. When Brady complained about the length of the smooch, the footballer’s boy returned and planted a five second kiss on his poppa. Watch it (below).

Since this episode aired, people have dubbed the moment “uncomfortable” and “too long.” In fact, this is what Twitter has had to say on the matter:
as someone who comes from (on one side anyway) One Of Those Kissing Families, i really wanted to be able to defend Tom Brady here, but… the kiss is pretty weird

Everyone was questioning Tom Brady for kissing his son on the lips and as a child of European ass people who do this I was ready to defend but boy oh boy does that kiss linger

However, this is just how the Bradys show affection. For starters, Tom kisses his father on the lips, as he proved after the Super Bowl last year.
Not to mention, no one was up in arms when he kissed daughter Vivian Lake Brady on the lips for THIS Instagram snap:

Mr. Brady has committed far greater offenses — *cough* not denouncing Donald Trump *cough* — than showing some tenderness to his children. Let’s do away with this toxic masculinity, shall we??
Smooch away, bud!!
