Tom Brady dressed like Melania Trump at the Super Bowl, and fans are absolutely roasting him for it
Tom Brady has been at the forefront of the celebrity gossip circuit of late, given his recent run-in with a radio presenter who made crude remarks about his five-year-old daughter, and of course there's also that video of him kissing his son for what some people believed to be an "uncomfortable" amount of time. But given that Superbowl weekend - AKA one of the most hotly anticipated events of the year - has just passed, you'd expect all eyes to be turned towards the quarterback's performance on the pitch. But no, it appears that a serious sartorial misstep is getting all of the attention.
The 40-year-old was apparently channelling his inner First Lady as he arrived at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis last night for the big night, and people have a lot to say about it.
Tom Brady lives a charmed life; he's one of the biggest stars in NFL history, one of only two players to have won five Superbowls, has a net worth of $180 million, and not to mention the fact that he's married to the supermodel, Gisele Bundchen.
But despite all his fame and fortune, the New England Patriots star hasn't been blessed with much dress sense. Case in point: the outfit he decided to wear to the US Bank Stadium last night for the Superbowl. Brady was clearly paying homage to the current First Lady and Donald Trump's beloved as he rocked up in a grey duffel coat, black turtleneck and black sunglasses.
While you and I may consider this to be a rather sophisticated ensemble - especially for a sportsman - the millions of people who tuned in for the Superbowl festivities couldn't help but notice a striking resemblance to Melania Trump.
And of course the people of the internet had quite a reaction to the whole thing. One Twitter user wrote, "I can't be the only one who sees this," while another corroborated "Why does Tom Brady look like Melania Trump after a full chop?"
Another individual just added, "I’m not saying Tom Brady is Melania Trump, but have you ever seen the two of them in the same room?"
Now, because this is the World Wide Web, a rather disturbing theory started to develop. A few months ago people were convinced that Melania Trump had a body double. While this conspiracy was never proven to be true, the images of Tom Brady channelling the 45th First Lady of the United States have led some individuals to believe that it could maybe, just maybe, could have been Tom Brady after all.
Yes, the internet is a strange place, folks. One social media user exclaimed, "The fake Melania was in fact Tom Brady in a wig: a conspiracy theory," whilst another just added, "It checks out".
In any case, it's evident that Tom Brady needs to recruit a personal stylist, stat. I mean, he's certainly got enough money in the bank to be able to afford one.
