"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's not seeming upset is because he doesn't have to pay Child Support now.

AP shouldn't be getting the media attention but Ruffin is delusional. He's more concerned that he's not getting the sympathy that AP is. He wants people to FB him and tell him. "sorry for your loss." Ruffin, you don't get that when you're the killer.

To the mother of this child... You opened the door... for things such as this... when you started bringing NUMEROUS men around your children!! It's a gamble MOST do NOT wish to play! If this is NOT a lessoned learned... DO NOT have anymore children! You are high risk to BAD parenting! Just sayin...

FOR GOD'S SAKE STOP THE BLAME GAME!!! The issue here is a precious little GIFT FROM GOD was SAVAGELY beaten and NO ONE was there to HELP HIM!!! What chance did he have ??? NOTHING!!! We have become a country of VIOLENCE and all the SO CALLED POLITICIANS are BICKERING about who is right and who is wrong!!! Have they even expressed sorrow about this precious little boy's death or ANY OTHER CHILD who has died so VIOLENTLY??? NO!!! They are too wrapped up in THEMSELVES and, their pockets, to CARE!!! SHAME on the ENTIRE BUNCH!!!

Way to step up and get your fame! I look at it like you are a failure as a father. Some boyfriend beat your son to death? Where were you Father of the Year? AP just found out during football season which does not give a lot of free time. I would give him a pass but if you say you "raised" him you failed in an epic manor! This girl was a tramp obviously, banging you, AP, and the dude that killed the boy. The tragedy is that boy was killed the rest is TMZ food. RIP lil guy

Regardless who gave the sperm or the love to the baby, he's gone. A child lost his life to abuse. It was senseless. Lets all remember this death needs justice not 10 mins with Oprah. Ijs.

SOME PEEPS ARE MORONS... THE KILLER IS NOT BOBBY RUFFIN. THE REAL KILLER IS AN ASIAN OR ASIAN-BLACK MIX DUDE WITH NAME JOSEPH PATTERSON. DO A SEARCH ON GOOGLE. HAS HIS MUGSHOT AND PRISON PICS. SO THE WHITE MOM WAS BANGING 2 BLACK GUYS AT THE SAME TIME. HAD A SON AND DIDNT KNOW WHICH BLACK DUDE WAS THE DAD... SO BOBBY RUFFIN RAISED THE KID UNTIL IT WAS DETERMINED AP WAS THE REAL DAD ABOUT 3-4 MOS AGO. THE MOM HAD A NEW BF, THE ASIAN DUDE JOSEPH PATTERSON AND THEY SHACKED UP IN AN APARTMENT IN SOUIX FALLS. PATTERSON KILLED THE KID WHILE HE WAS LEFT ALONE WITH TY, THE 2 YR OLD, UNBEKNOWNST TO ANY1 ELSE. THE MOM WASNT AT HOME AT THE TIME HE WAS KILLED. #TRUTH!!
