tennis legend Martina Navratilova recently criticized NFL star Tom Brady for his association with Republican Ron DeSantis.
It was recently reported that Brady was on “texting terms” with Ron DeSantis – the Governor of Florida. DeSantis is known for many controversial decisions such as resisting the imposition of restrictions such as face mask mandates, stay-at-home orders and vaccination requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, the governor also signed into law the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which prohibits teaching about sexual orientation or gender identity in public school classrooms from kindergarten through third grade. . He also recently enacted a law banning most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, with no exceptions for rape or incest.
Martina Navratilova, who has spoken widely on political and social views, including injustices faced by women, did not take the revelation about Brady lightly.
The Czech-American tennis legend slammed the NFL player, underscoring the Republican mindset by mentioning another member of the party – US Senator from Wisconsin Ron Johnson, who also opposed the need for vaccines but was inconsiderate about laws for women and girls.
“I love Ron Johnson’s quote about personal freedom and autonomy. Yeah. But apparently this only applies to vaccines and masks, not women and girls,” Martina Navratilova tweeted.
