"So Tired of This 'Poor Adrian' Sh*t"

The man who raised Adrian Peterson's 2-year-old son says he's sick and tired of people feeling sorry for the NFL star, claiming AP didn't care about the boy because he never got the chance to meet him. 

We broke the story, AP only learned he was the biological dad a few months ago. Before the revelation, the child's mother was under the impression that the father was a man named Bobby Ruffin.

After the child passed away on Friday, Bobby went to his Facebook page and unloaded ... writing, "So tired of this poor Adrian Peterson sh*t. Let me blow all your minds. The boy who died was my son."

"Yes A.P. he was the biological father but I raised him and he carried my name. Tyrese Robert Ruffin. I don’t blame AP for not really caring cuz him and I both found out recently who the biological father was."

“AP met my son for the first time yest when my son was already in coma. I was here today when we pulled the plug, not him. He was happily practicing and has no problem playing on Sunday."

"So yea this isn’t all out yet but I’m sick of the poor AP sh*t. He didn’t know or even meet my son. Sorry for the outburst but put yourself in my place.”

AP isn't out there saying "poor me"... It's sites like TMZ that have it as a headline 3x a day.

Exactly my thoughts. I don't get why the outpouring of feelings on the sperm donnor. My feelings are with you and the mother, Mr. Ruffin.

He's right. I'm sorry he is going through this loss right now. First the loss in learning the boy wasn't biologicially his and now this. This guy must be going through a lot...he can rant all he wants.

This guy is right...but it wasn't Adrian who was looking for sympathy....he most likely tried to keep this as quiet as possible...but of course the MEDIA plays it out

I completely agree....sorry this man Mr. Ruffin lost his child. Horrible way for a baby to die. It is disgusting that AP chose to play football instead of supporting the mother of his child while she had to make the decision to end her childs suffering and pull him from life support. One hell of a football player does not mean you are one hell of a parent. You found out months ago and never met him, come on clearly this child was not his priority. Money does not buy class!

They are both suckers if you ask me.. and the mom is the biggest idiot here to let some violent f ck near her son. The innocent are the ones who suffer. Rest in peace little one.

My 2 Cents    

Mr Ruffin...at the time you found out the child was not yours AP found out the child was his. Instead of pulling stunts like this you should respect the fact that AP was willing to drop everything he was doing to respond to an emergency. He can't control the media. Just seems like Mr Ruffin is mad that its not his name out there...RIP Little Guy.
