Update: Adrian Peterson Two Year Old Son Dies After Being Attacked by Mom's Boyfriend

Adrian Peterson's two year old son has died. We reported earlier that the child was beaten by a man who was dating his mother by the name of Joseph Patterson.

According to TMZ:

The boy was on life support since 5:30 PM Thursday ... but his condition never improved ... so family members made the decision to take the child off the ventilator.

Sources tell TMZ .. Adrian was informed about the situation before the news went public.

We're told Peterson will be planning the funeral with other members of the boy's family.

Patterson was initially arrested in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for assault and battery of an infant -- and now, it's almost certain the charges will be elevated to murder. 

The details surrounding the beating are unclear -- but cops say medical responders were called to the apartment where the child was living on Wednesday evening ... and he was unresponsive when help arrived.

Around news sites and black blogs, everyone has been passing judgement on black men for allegedly beating the son. Turns out the guy Joseph Patterson was an Asian man, not black.

This is why I would never leave my kid alone with anyone I'm dating. You never know what that person is thinking.

I don't know where they were passing judgement, but it wasn't on here. How ignorant is that? Who gives a f*ck what color he is. He killed a baby and has a history of abuse. I wouldn't care if he were pinstripped. Lock the muthaf*cka up and let his cellmates have their way with him!

AP's little boy was the same age as my daughter. This is why my boyfriend or whoever else will NEVER be alone with my child.

First of all can we acknowledge the fact that his mom aint even wait 72 hours before pulling the plug on her baby tho???!!!!! I understand his condition wasn't gettn better BUT what PARENT wouldn't STILL try to wait a bit to see if the child has a fighting chance of survival????!!!! Ppl hav loved ones on life support for MONTHS N MONTHS and just after 24hrs u gon pull da plug? How harsh is that? Seems like a cover up but if there's more to the story than the savage beating we know about, I dnt wanna even think of wat it is! Smh *shivers congratulations dis b**** nd fam just received the worst mommy of the year award smdh can u say "wasn't ready to b a mother/ saw an opportunity to b carefree nd ran wit it"

Let's not forget that bio parents can and have done this sort of thing too. I'm always skeptical of a man that ignores his child, runs from them, doesn't pay child support, ya know, just overall not involved in his child's life having access to his child unsupervised. I had a friend who tried to force her husband to care for their child and you would never imagine the mean and cruel things he did to that boy. I'd never force my child's father to "care" about his child.

@Truth Teller

But here's the thing, the immediate assumption was also that the baby mother was black but guess what, she's WHITE! But that shouldn't even be the problem. The problem are ignorant ass people who shouldn't be allowed to have sperm or wombs to produce children. I hope that beast and the triflin b**** he was with both suffer greatly. F****** sick a****** bastard!!!!
