Following the news of his son's death on Friday, many people across the internet started posting pictures from this past summer's training camp when Adrian Peterson's son, Adrian, Jr., came for a visit. To make things perfectly clear, Adrian, Jr. is not the child that died in this week's tragic events in Sioux Falls.
As such, Peterson put the following out on Twitter this morning:
My son Adrian Jr. who lives w/me is healthy. Appreciate the concern. We respectfully ask to stop tweeting his pics.— Adrian Peterson (@AdrianPeterson) October 12, 2013
We are currently not posting photos of my son who passed away. Thank u for your understanding.— Adrian Peterson (@AdrianPeterson) October 12, 2013
We would like to pass this along in the hopes that, if you have tweeted or re-tweeted any pictures of Peterson and Adrian, Jr., or posted them to other social media sites, that you take a moment to take them down out of respect for the family's wishes.
That's all we have to add at the present time.
