Family of the Year: Baseball’s Torii Hunter & One of His BabyMamas’ Rapist Sons

By Debbie Schlussel

Many readers sent me links to the story about the dude who fathered 30 kids with almost as many different women and pays some of them one dollar in child support. And that guy may be the “father of the year.” But I want to introduce you to the family of the year–or rather familIES of the year: that of Major League Baseball’s Torii Hunter, yet another pro athlete multi-millionaire who couldn’t keep his pants zipped. Yup, I’m spelling his first name right (because his mama couldn’t).

Father of the Year: Baseball Player Torii Hunter Had 4 Kids w/ 4 Chicks & Now His Son is a Rapist

I’ve said many times before what many readers also feel about these multiple babydaddy idiots: their kids will be sucklings on the entitlement system and they will also be criminals, delinquents, drug users, morons who sleep around like there’s no tomorrow, etc. And so it goes with the Torii Hunter “extended” family. Hunter claims to be a devout Christian, which I don’t quite believe since he had three kids out of wedlock with three different other women he never married and seems more concerned with inventing a dumb name for at least one of them (Monshadrik Hunter–the first name sounds like pretend French for “My Booty Call”) than raising his kids to be decent human beings.

This is what happens when kids are fathered outside of marriage and their fathers aren’t really in their lives. I’ve seen it a gazillion times with juvenile criminal defendants I’ve represented (who are ticking time bombs because dad wasn’t there and they had no decent male role model and father figure in their lives). Although I wouldn’t exactly call multi-babydaddy Torii Hunter a role model for anything. And if you have kids with three or more different women (Hunter has four kids with four chicks), it’s a tip-off: you probably suck as a father (yes, even you, Donald Trump–though at least Trump’s kids turned out okay and didn’t become criminals and rapists) and a human being.

Now, one of Hunter’s illegit kids is in trouble for drugging and raping women and sending out videotapes of it. Defense lawyers claim they have a recording of one of the main accusers recanting. But I don’t buy it, and this “family” sounds like pure garbage. Make sure you read the part about this kid’s mom, another real prize.

17-year-old Darius McClinton-Hunter is free on bond after his arrest Monday in connection with the sexual assault of a child. A Texas prosecutor contends a group of boys at Prosper High School invited girls to parties, gave them drugs and had sex, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Five Prosper students, including McClinton-Hunter, were arrested Monday after a month-long investigation into an alleged sexual assault. . . . One of the juveniles is accused of helping to drag a girl into a closet, where prosecutors say McClinton-Hunter forced her to have oral sex, according to The Morning News. . . .

Torii Hunter was placed on the Angels’ restricted list Monday. It’s not clear when he will return to the team. . . . He tweeted Monday night, “This is very tough for a father. Thanks for ur prayers and support. Be Blessed everyone!”

McClinton-Hunter’s mother, Lanika McClinton, was arrested Monday morning while taking her son to school and charged with driving without a valid license, according to The Morning News.

No you di’in’t!

Like I said, this is the family of the year. Daddy has millions of dollars and sonny boy–who has no father in his life until now–is a rapist.

As “families” like this become the norm in America, doesn’t our future look terrific?

Deb, like you I defended numerous juvenile defendants. Not once, not a single time, did I ever see a father at trial. Not a single one of these defendants had a mother who was MARRIED to the father. Not once was the father LIVING with the mother.

In the case of the adult perps, virtually all had children out of wedlock. A few of their kids had already died due to lead or steal poisoning while involved in the drug trade (shot or stabbed to death).

Where did I practice criminal law? In Washington, DC (the DC stands for District of Crime).

So, while I was defending these people, (and this was during the height of the drug wars in DC), I go to synagogue, where the speaker was a Washington Post reporter who had the tenacity to state that the drug dealers were the best and the brightest black children!!!! Having known the best and the brightest, whose parents were married and professionals, and who went to Ivy League schools, I found this nonsense objectionable. Most were so dumb, they could not count, which led to shortages when they paid their drug lords, hence the high rate of death. This was the end result of one parent unwed homes.

    Well at least I’ve read ONE uplifting story in the news Weak math skills=death penalty. Except I’m thinking most of the time the metric system wasn’t so much a problem as was the lack of character in the drug dealer in the
    With Hunters kids, something tells me this won’t be the only criminal spawn.

    Dear Mr. Grant: I think you mean “temerity.” “Tenacity” means “perseverance.”

    Miranda Rose Smith on May 24, 2012 at 7:49 am

It may be that Torii Hunter is not all that different from Desmond Hatchett, the “man” who fathered 30 children. This goes to show you that money cannot buy character or class.

Ralph Adamo on May 23, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Thanks for the great article again Debbie.. And thanks to Jonathan for some great first hand insight.

PDMac60 on May 23, 2012 at 4:52 pm

A few years ago I read an article mentioning a Christian pastor who had been involved in jail ministry with male inmates for over thirty years, and he said that one thing they ALL had in common is that they either hated their fathers or didn’t have a father in their lives. Fathers do make a difference, despite what feminist propaganda says otherwise.

joan on May 23, 2012 at 5:12 pm

You can carp all you want about “fatherlessness,” but the unspoken and more important issue here is race: This is American black culture writ large. Seventy percent or more of all black births in the U.S. now are out of wedlock. As for the 20 percent or so of non-Hispanic white births out of wedlock, data show they turn out better than their black counterparts.

Torii Hunter is a thoroughly reprehensible sperm donor, but within his own race he’s got plenty of company.

S: It used to be about race. Now it isn’t as White America is catching up. There are a gazillion Bristol Palins and Levi Johnstons. And check out Teen Mom, etc. The juvenile criminal defendants I represented–all of them with no father, all born out of wedlock–were all White. DS

    Kudos to Debbie for being the only “conservative” to point out the irresponsibility of Bristol Palin.

    Rocco Rubino on May 23, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    “S: It used to be about race. Now it isn’t as White America is catching up. There are a gazillion Bristol Palins and Levi Johnstons. And check out Teen Mom, etc. The juvenile criminal defendants I represented–all of them with no father, all born out of wedlock–were all White. DS”

    Not quiet yet, both whites and “hispanics” still have at least a few decades of hard work ahead of them, assuming north american society stay as it is today.
    Also, if you want a bad example of a white person, do take christian weston chandler. 🙂

    I find your claim kind of surprising. In today´s USA, it seems kinda hard not to have non-whites. The proportion of non-whites gets even higher in large urban area and in the juvenile segment of the US population.
    I would find it surprising too if for example I knew you worked in Detroit and you stated that all your defendants are blacks, even if blacks are the majority in that city and proportionally comittes the most crimes there, you would still be bound to have at least some non-blacks defendants too.

    To have only whites, you would have to either
    1) You avoid to represent non-white juvenile criminal defendants.
    2) Live in an area where whites are very much the great majority, kind of hard to be in such an area by mere coïncidence.

    It isn´t that i presume to judge you, assume that you are somehow “evil” for doing either or know how to run your life better than you.
    Sometimes discriminating can be wrong, other times right, you might have valid reasons or unvalid reasons but ultimately, unless it endanger lives, is really a matter of personal freedoom, not a crime.

    But in either cases, this particular statement might not be fully objective, to a certain degree you might yourself not quiet believe that it is no longer a question of race.

    Jaws on May 25, 2012 at 11:03 am

Pukey Liberals like to think not caring about stable, loving two parent MARRIED homes does not matter but that is because most don’t know what urban black families look like now and the instability and the craven way of life. Nor do they see the gross white-trash version. Easy to think it’s all okey-dokey if you think single parent families look like Halle Berry’s and Naomi Watt’s “families”. I happen to think they ALL are rotten. In all of them the kids pay while the Liberals get to pat themselves on their stupid backs for being so “progressive” and “open-minded”. No one cares about the kids and the crappy hand they were given in life because their sperm-donor and egg hatcher were “kickin’ it”. It’s disgustingly primal!

If those same pukes had to spend a weekend with said families they’d all be running away in horror like the “kool-aid man” and/or knocking on the front door of “The Munsters”. Wake up idiots, a demographic in our country is rotting from the inside out because of the 70% out-of-wedlock birthrate. And as DS rightly pointed out, Hispanics and Whites are catching up.

These stories disgust me to the core and I hate seeing America rot from a disgusting culture of useless idiots who have useless kids who procreate like Tribbles!

Skunky on May 23, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    Hi Skunk, Chinese people who have settled in America come from a largely impoverished land. Yet somehow they seem to have a decent set of family values (along with certain other ethnic groups).

    The people in their homeland have recent bought Weetabix AND the second-largest movie theater chain in the US.

    And in New York one school district has made Arabic a mandatory language subject. (see NY Post).

    It’s beginning to look like people of European descent enjoyed America for a while…but that time is coming to an end.

    brickwood on May 25, 2012 at 8:52 am

      Sorry Skunky for leaving a letter off your name. Unintentional.

      brickwood on May 25, 2012 at 8:53 am

Debbie even if G-d forbid I pulled a bun-n-run on you and knocked you up our kid would still be Ivy league material and quite good besides, as I have very high level genetic material, the result of thousands of years of selective breeding and respectable Shidach dates.

A1 on May 23, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    @A1, You stay classy.

    samurai on May 24, 2012 at 1:27 am

Could be Obama’s son…

cassandra on May 23, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Thanks, Debbie, I’ve been trying to find an n-depth article of what’s going on in the case, but the most the media is willing to give up is something along the lines of “whatever he did, he might not be guilty of ‘it’ “.

Frustrating as frozen vegetables when the media is in full “cover-up” mode.

Rick on May 24, 2012 at 6:00 am

This is very important issue for me. As a black man who grew up in a single parent household I have seen both sides. I was blessed with a great mom who while divorced from my dad took real charge of myself and my brothers. By the grace of God we all turned out to be good and productive citizens. That sadly is not always the case. I’ve seen blacks kids without Dads have to deal with abuse and neglect on an unimaginable scale. Did you know that 1 in 3 black boys whose father is not in the home turn out to be into drugs, gangs,in jail or dead before they reach the age of 25. Black girls wind up being a Bristol Palin or Halle Berry without the fame and fortune. Irresponsible “babydaddies” like Torii Hunter, Dwayne Wade and Terrell Owens do a great disservce to hard working black fathers like myself who are doing the right thing in regards to their wives and children. Just look at what’s happening to “little” Darius as a prime exmaple. The traditional familiy in general and the black familiy in particular is under assault in this country from virulent liberalism. This is why for the life of me I can’t understand why blacks vote in lockstep with the party of the NAACP, the KKK, FDR, LBJ, Byrd, Clinton and Obama.

Ken b on May 24, 2012 at 9:16 am

    Amen, Ken B! I’d love to see the day when black Americans wake up en masse and KNOW they can think for themselves and tell the Liberals and the Dems to get lost…they’re NOT gonna take their thinking in lock-step for granted anymore.

    Dignity would return and they would NOT sell themselves short and demand more and say that kinda life is NOT what they want and NOT good for their family and community!

    Skunky on May 24, 2012 at 10:55 am

Torii will undoubtedly portary himself as a victim entitled to our sympathy for his difficult time. Sickening. Castrate the kid. That would send a message. And teh father. Any questions?

Bill Ford on May 24, 2012 at 9:37 am

    Well Bill like I said he and his kind get NO sympathy from me. Zip,zero,zilch,nada!

    Ken b on May 24, 2012 at 11:24 am

@Miranda Rose – I think JE Grant meant “audacity”, not “tenacity.” Just a guess, though.

DS_ROCKS! on May 24, 2012 at 2:12 pm

First off Debbie, you should probably get you facts straight before you write a story about someone. For instance Torii isn’t the name given to him by his mother, and two of his boys are twins so idk how there could be 4 different mothers, please explain that to me. Also, I don’t condone rape at all but it’s pretty ridiculous that would write something like this about his son who is “ACCUSED” of rape. All too often a kid is accused of rape by a girl in an attempt to receive money, especially considering his father is a millionaire. I’m sure you wrote something similar when promising USC football commit Brian Banks was convicted of rape and sent to prison for 5 years all bc the “victims” mother wanted to sue the school. Or even College baseball player Garrett Wittels was once again “accused” of rape by 2 girls because their father wanted to receive a large sum of money. You should be ashamed of yourself, anyone who commented and agreed with you should be ashamed of themselves, you are a pathetic person for writing something like this.

MikeZ on May 31, 2012 at 1:23 am

Honestly I think that the white girl just wanted money from Toriis family.An I know Darious His An Amazing Sweet Guy.
So whoever thinks he should go to jail well ya’ll are stupid!

LF Harsh on July 22, 2012 at 10:07 pm

This blog post is shameful and the people that commented…there isn’t enough bad stuff in the world that can happen to you all.

Debbie…Torii Hunter has triplet boys: Torii, Jr., Darius and Moonshadrik.

That means Torii Hunter, Sr. has four children by two different mothers.

Two different mothers? Holy smokes…that’s unique in this country!

Your bigotry led you to post this ignorance.

There’s the proof you need to know there is no God. If there was, he would have struck you dead as soon as you clicked “Publish.”

SH: Nice try. But that’s a lie. Torii Hunter’s three kids from previous relationships were born to different mothers. They are NOT triplets. DS

Nothing but white trash!

So cuntface… why don’t you publish articles about the same situation with white people? Other than you are a regressive racistslut.

Debbiexposed on December 10, 2012 at 11:13 pm

The girl recanted he story… bout that??? How do you racist feel?

Dez on December 22, 2012 at 2:22 pm

First of all yous should have one of your interns do a better job of fact checking before you write a stor y like this. You obliviously are just trying to get attention for yourself by writing such trash. Torii Hunter is a very upstanding member of the community. He donates his money and his time to multiple charities. I don’t know you but I would bet that your donations don’t equal half of what he does. He has three sons all going to major universities so apparently he has done something right. God forbid you ever have any offspring to pollute the world with as one piece of trash like you is plenty. I really don’t know why I gave your racist ( I’m am white by the way) blog the time of day, but after reading your trash I had to say something. If you get paid for what you do you should be ashamed of yourself and face charges of robbery because that’s what you are doing. Sincerly, Chris Italia

chris italia on January 2, 2013 at 5:06 pm

Torrii went 3 for 5 again last night. batting .349 45 hits in 28 games. If the Tigers make it to the World Series again this year, I WILL HAVE HIS BABY!

This is a disgusting article. What the hell, dont give this racist hack a second thought. And the morons who support her claims.Talk about dumm….I am a dummer American for stumbling across this trash. I would say this racist needs to be called out at every turn of her pathetic existence.

She calls a kid, ‘` rapist.” Please, anyone with the means to go into every corner of her life and drag out the skeletons true or not. Please post to every blog on the net.

jas on September 9, 2013 at 2:03 am

Before you go convicting Hunter, research the custody issues.

I have a hard time imagining that these four women were victims who had to submit to Hunter–must have been some relationship there–

You don’t say whether Hunter has abandoned these children or whether he is precluded by court custody order. You just imply it.

Yeah, Hunter might have sinned, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a Christian–it shows he has the courage to step up to the plate and admit his sins. Do we know whether Hunter actually abandoned these children as you imply,? Or has a family court system limited his visitations and time in order to give mother’s more money for more time?

I think your article is very judgmental and opinionated–why don’t you do a little research and try to write a more balanced story instead of committing “journalism fraud”–marketing your own opinion with half truths. Your article lacks depth and integrity.

Stan on March 30, 2014 at 4:44 pm

I think you really should do your research before you create judgmental opinions. You are entitled to your opinion but ALL families have issues. Because Torri Hunter is a public figure we make the mistake of thinking that having millions excluded one from dealing with the problems of simply living.
On a bright note, the Hunter’s are a positive influence in the Prosper community. Torri is very involved in the development of the community I.e. charity events, support for local business and local little league promotions are a part of his busy life.

Please, let’s try to be more postive in our privilege to write/blog.

Travis Singleton on September 6, 2014 at 3:41 pm

You are a racist judgmental Kike

Suzie Q on September 28, 2014 at 12:02 am

Is this website real, or a satirical commentary on uneducated conservatives to make them seem ignorant and racist?

Mike on June 11, 2015 at 7:15 pm

You are an idiot. You do NOT know Torii because if you did you would know that what you have said is NOT true. Know your facts! You can tell that you think you are better than most & likely just a dumb racist twit. Torii is an awesome man, husband AND father! You should apologize to this man & his family for writing such bullcrap about him. He was very young when he had his sons but he has ALWAYS taken care of them & been in there lives!

Angie R on October 5, 2015 at 10:46 am

Now that everyone on this site has found Hunter’s son guilty of sexual assault, you might want to check your facts. The grand jury did not indict him. Case closed.
