Robert Kraft’s calls out Vladimir Putin over Super Bowl ring during Tom Brady Netflix roast

The owner of the New England Patriots didn't mince words during the live broadcast.

The owner of the New England Patriots didn't mince words during the live broadcast.

Robert Kraft had a short, expletive-laden message for Vladimir Putin on Sunday night during “The Roast of Tom Brady” on Netflix.

“And one more thing, in case Vladimir Putin, you’re watching, give me my (expletive) ring back, will ya?” Kraft said. The video of the comment was not posted due to the language used.

Kraft claimed that the Russian president stole his Super Bowl ring back in 2005.

The incident took place after the Patriots beat the Philadelphia Eagles at Super Bowl XXXIX. Kraft, along with Rupert Murdoch and others, met with Putin in Russia in an attempt to “stimulate commerce between the United States and Russia,” according to Boston.com.

According to the report, the group met with Putin at Konstantinovsky Palace near St. Petersburg, where then-Citigroup president Sandy Weill suggested that Kraft show the politician his $25,000 4.94-carat ring.

“I took out the ring and showed it to [Putin], and he put it on and he goes, ‘I can kill someone with this ring,’” Kraft said in 2013, via the “New York Post.”

“I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”
