It's being called Babygate.
Photos popped up yesterday of Gisele Bundchen playing on a beach in Costa Rica on Monday with her baby son, Benjamin. Dad Tom Brady was back home practicing with the New England Patriots, prepping for the rapidly-approaching NFL season.
The supermodel, who sported a bikini, frolicked in the surf with 20-month-old Benjamin, who was naked.
The uproar came after the bawdy guys at Barstoolsports.com posted some of the photos and zoomed in on little Ben's private parts and threw in some lewd commentary, fueling outrage on Twitter, reports the Boston Herald, adding that the site also received a cease-and-desist letter from a Brazilian photo agency demanding the pics be taken down.
Site creator David Portnoy told New England Cable News this morning, "We saw the Brady's kid picture and basically I saw it and thought it was a funny joke," Portnoy. "I mean really that's the nuts and bolts of it. For me it wasn't so much about the kid, it's an ongoing theme with us is that Brady is the best, Brady is God and really for us that blog was just another way to say it."
