Boston blogger criticized for photo of Brady's son

(NECN: Lauren Collins: Boston, Mass.) - While blogger David Portnoy has defended his decision to post a photo of Tom Brady's young son naked on a beach, the Boston-based operator of barstoolsports.com also says he's getting death threats over the decision.

The photo shows the boy's private parts as he frolics on a beach while accompanied by his mother, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who is Brady's wife. The photo, taken by a paparazzo, was posted on the blog and prompted an outcry on sports talk radio on whether Portnoy crossed a line.

Some are calling this child pornography, Portnoy says that is the farthest thing from his mind.

"It's Boston. We're going to show the Gisele pictures. We saw the Brady's kid picture and basically I saw it and thought it was a funny joke. 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. It's like Brady's kid is the best, Peyton Manning's is the worst.

"To use an analogy, it could have been a dog, same genetic disposition, and we would have made the same analogy. So for me, obviously people are saying it's sexual, pornographic, all that. That's really not, for somebody to say that, that's wild to me. It's not sexual at all in nature to me," Portnoy said.
