It can now be officially said. Not every story about Tom Brady is a flowery, positive, glowing account of his greatness.
No, less than two weeks after winning his seventh Super Bowl he’s finding that there’s a growing movement for him to return the $960,000 Paycheck Protection Program loan he received in 2020.
Brady’s company is called TB12, and it employs 75 people. It’s growing fast too, as over 60 of those employees were added to the payroll in 2020.
There is a change.org petition circulating that is urging Brady to pay back the funds.
As of Friday, it had 160,000 signatures, and with all the media coverage, it has a chance to get a lot higher.
The company was founded by Brady, and his trainer Alex Guerrero.
