On Sunday night, the sports and entertainment worlds got together to roast Tom Brady on Netflix.

For the most part, most fans thought the roast was funny and entertaining, but not everyone felt that way.

When the ladies of The View got together on Monday, they dragged Brady’s roast because they didn’t like the jokes made at the expense of Brady’s ex, Gisele Bündchen.

Ana Navarro was especially upset.

“If I were getting paid what he was probably getting paid — he was an executive producer — I’d laugh at all sorts of things,” said Navarro. “But, I think the person who wasn’t getting paid and ended up being part of this roast was Gisele, and I think that’s a bad, lame thing to do to your ex-wife and mother to your children,” Navarro said, before showing a clip of Bündchen breaking down crying during a traffic stop as she reportedly fled paparazzi tailing her in Miami.

To be fair, the jokes weren’t really about Bündchen, but instead about her leaving Brady after a long marriage.

It also bothered the hosts that Brady defended New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft but not his ex-wife.

Brady co-produced the roast, so The View hosts thought perhaps Bündchen deserved a cut of the money made from it.

“I love comedy and I like to laugh, but not at people’s expense. That makes me uncomfortable,” Sunny Hostin said. “If you agreed to executive-produce your own roast and you’re making money from it and you agree to it, that’s one thing, but it is another thing [to bring Gisele into it].”

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former communications staffer for Donald Trump, said that the roast “bordered on mean” and felt “mean-spirited.”

For his part, Brady didn’t seem to mind and took it all in stride. There were a few over-the-top jokes, but it’s a roast. The point of a roast is to say mean-spirited things about the person you are honoring.

One person who didn’t chime in on this subject was Whoopi Goldberg. Goldberg normally adds her voice to the hot topics table but not Monday. It might be because she has her own negative history with roasts.

Goldberg was roasted at the Friar’s Club over 30 years ago. At the time, Goldberg was dating Ted Danson, who made some racially insensitive jokes that didn’t go over well with the crowd. At the suggestion of Goldberg, Danson even showed up in blackface.

Most of the jokes made fun of their relationship but once the pictures and the jokes came out, that ended their relationship and impacted both of their careers.

Regardless, Navarro remained adamant that the Brady roast went too far when it came to Gisele.

“Leave Gisele the hell alone. Go make your money elsewhere. Really? I thought that was really tacky,” she concluded.
