You’re Rich, ‘Stop The ‘Hood Stuff’! Deion Sanders Embarrasses Son by Reminding Him How Blessed He Is

by Scott Aberdeen | Top Right Sports

NFL legend Deion Sanders, recently took to Twitter to publicly — but lovingly — embarrass his son, Deion Sanders Jr., to remind him just how fortunate he is.

The elder Deion stepped in after this tweet from Junior:

Deion Sr. very pointedly mentioned the size of Junior’s trust fund. And he didn’t do it privately, over Easter dinner, but right back on Twitter, to send a clear message:

BOOM. Message sent, not just to Jr., but to hundreds of big headed NCAA stars, many of whom will end up running themselves off the rails by hanging out with the wrong people in that “hood.”

Deion Sr. got away from all that, and has enjoyed an envious career and persona free from the crime and bad influences of his poor past. Deion Jr. (Bucky) has followed in his father’s footsteps and plays football for SMU, though he remains very close to his family. Bucky has enjoyed financial advantages that his father never had, Deion’s single mom, Connie Knight, worked two jobs to make ends meet.

After a legendary NFL career, which included 2 Super Bowl rings, 8 Pro Bowls, and standout plays on offense and defense, Deion is now star of Deion’s Family Playbook on OWN.

Despite his public calling out of his son, Deion made it clear it was all out of love and good fun. And Jr. played along:

Hilarious. And damn good fathering.

As Jennifer Van Laar of IJR noted, Geraldo Rivera delved into this big issue on “Fox and Friends” this morning, saying many middle and upper middle class families deal with with this cultural problem: kids who are well-off but still want to be ‘hood:

Both my sons went to the best prep schools in the country… Harvard Westlake and the one in [inaudible] — so they went to these prep schools. Fine prep schools. I mean they’re all kids headed for Ivy League colleges and they wore hoodies and had attitude and walking around. And I’m like, “Look at you. Take that off your head. I know where you went to school.”

Deion is clearly well aware of this problem, and it is great see to that he takes seriously the importance of keeping his children grounded. And it is a message which hopefully will also resonate with millions of young men who admire him.

    They dress like thugs to blend in and not get anal raped by the hoods

      You are EXACTLY RIGHT JPM,,, that little Bitch was AFRAID and it showed. Guy could run fast and that was it. Of course that’s all it takes in the NFL sometimes.

    When I was in school if a kid talked and acted like that he would be put in a special ed class…he appears to be mentally and physically challenged.

    LOL!! Gotta wonder what the neighbors think! Obviously, that’s probably a fairly wealthy area. They must love looking out their windows seeing a bunch of Bro’s cranking their music singing their cursing rap crap!! Pretty sad, a useless freeloading black kid spending his loud mouth old man’s cash!! Not to mention the tramp that will probably be knocked up with D juniors kid so she can leech off of that free cash as her tramping ass drills several other dudes. Typical of a lot of black who’s parents earned all the money they are spending. No respect, no manners, just more criminals coming along!! Sad to say,, but that it FACT!!

    This is the reality of most blacks, this type of music does nobody any good, and its another black person talking about the struggles of the ghetto whom never knew what a welfare check looked like. You want to change black culture change the ghetto music, and toss the fakers.

    Hey JR, You’re a fake, baby, you can’t conceal it

    Know how I know ’cause I can feel it

    You’re a fake, baby, no rhyme or reason

    ‘Cause in your mind it’s lyin’ season

    For those bagging on deion where are your super bowl rings? Just saying

  • PeteyGLaFlare

    Honestly the most embarrassing part is he is bragging about being rich when it’s his dad who made the money. Hood or not, that’s lame. My parents have a lot of money but I try not to bring it up, I would feel like a loser rubbing it in people’s faces, I didn’t earn it so there is no pride in that.
