Man Who Raised AP's Son:

"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.”

He was your son until in spite you left the baby mama to fend for herself and she took up with a man who was on record beating children. Good dad.

This is what's wrong with society today. Both of these "men" are carrying on with a woman they hardly know. Using no protection, not caring who they bring into the world. Bobby steps up to help raise the child, but a DNA test could have confirmed things years ago. This woman is now with a third man who has a violent history that is so bad he doesn't stop until he finally succeeds in killing a child. Who suffers the most? The innocent child, of course. Peterson, Patterson and the baby's "mother" all need to be in jail.

hi haters    

AP has been carrying on inappropriately. He never made the child a priority. He makes himself look bad by practicing and playing instead of mourning and praying. The boy's real father WAS Ruffin- that's ho he had a relationship with, that's who cared about him, that's who has been effected by his death. AP could give a fawk obviously. AP seems like he is socially awkward.

Hey Skit, I'm not a doctor, but it doesn't take a doctor to figure out anyone who posts the disgusting, sick things you have and thinks it's funny is one sick puppy. Here's a joke for you: How do stop Skit from crawling around on the floor? Nail his itsy bitsy little winky to it. But first get a magnifying glass so you can find it. HA, HA, loser. Oh, And please don't procreate, we don't need any more like. Now go find that hole you crawled out of and bury yourself.

Some of the comments on here are amazing. None of you know the true relationship between AP and his son...you don't know anything. Some guy rants on Facebook and the people getting the most likes are the people agreeing with him and calling AP a sperm donor as if you were part of the family

And his football team is part of his family. AP dropped all practice and what he was doing and went to the hospital. He showed up to the game to be with people who would support him. A lot of idiots on here

And where were you Mr. Riffin when the child was being killed. Oh that's right, the mother dropped you. Adrian never claimed to be the dad for the last 2 years being that he just found out this summer he was the dad. Enjoy your 15 minutes which are over as of now.

Spell checker works now.

This "real dad" guy should be embarrassed. Whether or not ppl feel sorry for AP is besides the point. Everyone was upset over the loss of a child and since the "real dad" was a nobody we dont feel sorry for someone we had no idea existed. Just plain stupid.
