Tom Brady was in court Wednesday as part of the Deflategate settlement proceedings. When someone is in court, a sketch of that person often gets made.
And, well, the sketch that came out of Brady was … um … well … it wasn’t flattering? See for yourself:

Rather than just gawk at it and make fun of it, though, Vice Sports got ahold of the artist as the poor woman left the courtroom. Jane Rosenberg had something to say:
“Tell Tom Brady, I’m sorry. He’s a very good looking guy and if I didn’t make him look good enough, I’ll try harder next time.”
Rosenberg, who does not participate in social media, nonetheless became aware that her sketch was blowing up the Internet. Maybe we should all take it easy on her? After all, her pretty dark answer to the last question is a reminder that she, like all of us, is human and feels terrible when she makes a mistake.
Does it bother me, people making fun of me? I don’t know. It hasn’t sunk in yet. I might be very depressed. I’m my biggest critic, myself. So I feel terrible when I do a bad sketch. So when the whole world is criticizing me, I might just kill myself. Or I might just laugh it off. Who knows?
