New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs apologized for telling supermodel Gisele Bundchen to "stay cute and shut up."
Jacobs initially did not care for Bundchen's comments after the Giants' Super Bowl XLVI victory - but told ESPN late Wednesday that he should respect her. Bundchen is, after all, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's wife.
"Given the fact that it's a colleague of mine's wife, I do apologize for saying that, because I shouldn't have said that," Jacobs said. "It's his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else."
Bundchen was irate after she was heckled by Giants fans on Sunday.
"You (need) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot (expletive) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time,” Bundchen said in a video obtained by TheInsider.com.
"I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times."
Wes Welker and tight end Aaron Hernandez had notable drops in the fourth quarter.
