The video of a crying Bündchen child subsequently went viral online, with many sharing their thoughts on the matter.

Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett also reacted to the footage, slamming the unidentified cop for his “dismissive posture” with the model.

According to the New York Post, Burkett said he was “dismayed” while watching the body cam footage.

“I was dismayed yesterday to watch a video interaction of one of our residents speaking to one of our police officers,” he wrote in a letter to Surfside Interim Police Chief Henry Doce.

He continued, “As one watches the video, it becomes clear very early in the same that the resident is upset and frightened. The frightened resident tells the Surfside officer that she believes a st–ker is following her and that she is afraid.”

In his statement, Mayor Burkett further admonished the police officer for his “dismissive posture, calling his behavior “unacceptable.”

“This response is wholly unacceptable and not reflective of the values, judgment, and service residents expect from their police,” Burkett said. “On the contrary, our police department’s paramount job is to keep our residents safe!”

“The dismissive posture towards a resident who is clearly in distress is everything we do not want to see in the way our police interact and serve our residents,” he added.
