Miss America Betty Cantrell answered a question during the Miss America contestant eight days ago about Tom Brady and whether or not he cheated prompted her response, “I’d have to see the ball and feel it. If there’s any question, then yes, he cheated.”
Former Miss Georgia took home the crown that night and has since apologized for saying what she said to all the Brady fans.
“You know, I tried to give an opinion based on the facts that I knew, which were very slim, and I think that the verdict came out during the week of competition that the suspension was (lifted) … and that he was able to play again … so I had no idea,” she said. “We really don’t have our phones that week so I didn’t know that had happened and I just want to leave that question up to the sports fans. … Hopefully, the Tom Brady fans will forgive me and be OK with me again so we’ll see, but I think it is blowing over.”
