(CBS) -- New England Patriots star, Tom Brady is facing criticism after a viral video shows him cliff diving with his six-year-old daughter.

Brady can be seen holding his daughter Vivian's hand saying, "ready?" then counting down to the jump.

"If Vivi is going to be an Olympic champion one day, it probably won't be in synchronized diving," Brady wrote in an Instagram caption Friday, alongside the controversial video. "Daddy always gives her a 10 though!"

The video now has more than 3 million views on Instagram, but some commenters are not happy with what they saw.

"Absolutely the most stupid and dangerous thing for a 6 yr. old child to do. You should be ASHAMED," one Instagram user commeted. Some users claimed the young girl didn't appear ready to jump into the water in the video. "This is so cringey. she backs out and doesn't jump, but he yanks her in with him," said another.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson commented saying the video gave him anxiety.

The athlete's management did not respond to request for comment
