NFL legend Deion Sanders has issued a stern warning to those who speak ill of his children, most particularly his daughter Deiondra Sanders.

Folks went after his daughter hard after she made some controversial remarks about the propensity for violence and criminality at Jackson State University in Mississippi where her father was the head coach for three years.


Deiondra Sanders told the “Baller Allert” podcast that her legendary father leaving to coach at the University of Colorado was about “more than football.” She also referenced the “killings on the campus every few months,” among other problems.

People verbally pummeled the daughter for what they characterized as reckless and inaccurate utterances and noted that she was not a student at JSU during Sanders’ tenure there.


Following the blowback from detractors, a fully contrite Deiondra Sanders returned to social media to offer a mea culpa for “exaggerating” the rate of murders on Jackson State’s campus.

To be clear, there is some merit to Deiondra Sanders’ concerns. The city of Jackson is reported to have the highest per capita homicide rate in the country — for the second consecutive year — edging out New Orleans, St. Louis, and Memphis, Tennessee, for the ignoble distinction, according to a WLBT3 news station report from early January 2023.

Nevertheless, the patriarch, who also goes by the monikers “Prime Time” and “Coach Prime,” used his Twitter platform to tell his daughter’s critics to fall back. He added that if his children are wrong, they will “repent” but that he will not tolerate “subliminal” attacks against his family.
