New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady recently responded to a scathing article written about his personal trainer by lashing out at two notorious junk food conglomerates, Kellogg and Coca Cola.

In an interview with Boston radio station WEEI-FM, Brady was asked about a recent Boston Magazine article that portrayed his personal trainer as a fake doctor who sold unproven miracle cures.

He went on the offensive, calling out the “hypocrites” who belittled his trainer while putting junk food into their own bodies.

“I think that’s quackery,” he said, describing the billions of dollars Coca-Cola has spent on marketing. “And the fact that they can sell that to kids? I mean, that’s poison for kids.”

He also took a jab at Tony the Tiger, saying cereals like Kellogg’s sugar-laden Frosted Flakes are why the U.S. has a major childhood obesity problem.

Kellogg had the audacity to respond and say that cereal breakfasts are “tied to lower body mass index readings in both children and adults” (wonder who funded that study?)

Props to Tom Brady for forgoing the opportunity for a large sponsorship deal (Take Part has some astonishing facts about this) to speak his mind and put these companies on the hot seat.

Tom: even though I’m a Michigan State grad and you’re a former Wolverine, you’re all right in my book.
