The legendary athlete gave his kid a very public reality check.
Deion Sanders Jr. is a sophomore wide receiver at Southern Methodist University. He's got some big shoes to fill, however, considering his dad is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as well as the only athlete ever to play in both a Super Bowl and a World Series. And it probably doesn't help the young Sanders's ego that his famous father is fact-checking everything he writes on Twitter. Deion Jr. tweeted this on Thursday:
Gotta get the hood doughnuts almost every morning. If my doughnuts don't come in a plain white box, I don't want them!

Shortly after, his father swooped in to take the wind out of his sails.
@DeionSandersJr you're a Huxtable with a million $ trust fund stop the hood stuff! Lololol. Son. #Truth

Ouch. There's something about being a parent that gives you an exceptional ability to undercut your kids. The NFL legend didn't stop there, either. He came back this morning with this gem:
@DeionSandersJr donuts in the hood? but we have a clothing line called @WellOffForever,condo living @SMU #versacesheets #Huxtable #Trustfund

It's tough to know whose side to take on this one. On the one hand, rich kids like Deion Jr. need to get their legs swept out from under them every once in a while. On the other hand, you're never too rich to appreciate hood donuts. They ARE better from a plain white box. #Truth
