The parents of a young Kansas City Chiefs fan accused of “blackface” by Deadspin are threatening to sue the magazine and reporter, demanding a retraction and apology.

The fan, Holden Armenta, and his family have faced backlash and allegations of racism, leading to distress for the young boy.

The family has emphasized that they did not intend to disrespect Native Americans and are taking legal action to address the situation. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

The Armentas wrote that, “These articles, posts on X and photos about Holden and his parents must be retracted immediately.”

“It is not enough to quietly remove a tweet from X or disable the article from Deadspin’s website,” wrote the boy’s parents.

“You must publish your retractions and issue an apology to my clients with the same prominence and fanfare with which you defamed them,” continued the letter.

“It’s been a lot. It’s been a pretty crazy couple of days,” Bubba said.

“I was mad, upset for him. I’m mad that he’s upset. He’s pretty devastated. I mean, he’s seen the videos and everything posted,” lamented the frustrated dad.

“The damage is already done,” Bubba said. “It’s, you know, worldwide. Now there’s comments all over, there’s, you know, disrespect towards Native Americans and towards my family. We never in any way, shape or form meant to disrespect any Native Americans or any tribes.”

“It’s OK because a lot of kids at school are getting excited, but it’s starting to get me a little nervous because if they go a little bit overboard, it’s a little scary,” revealed Hogan.

Hogan’s mother also defended her son on Facebook, highlighting his Native American heritage and criticizing the portrayal of the incident.

“This has nothing to do with the NFL,” Shannon Armenta wrote on Facebook.

“Also, CBS showed him multiple times and this is the photo people chose to blast to create division. He is Native American — just stop already,” proclaimed Hogan’s mom.
