*The more ghetto a celebrity is, the less they’ll be accepted?

Deion Sanders must have forgotten a ghetto is part of a city — a slum.

But that didn’t stop him from calling out Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel for his “ghetto tendencies” on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show.”

“Oh, please. I love Johnny Football,” Sanders said. “See, the reason people won’t accept Johnny Football is because Johnny Football has ghetto tendencies. I love Johnny Football.”

The hosts, Tom Joyner and Roland Martin, asked Sanders to clarify what he meant by “ghetto tendencies.”

“Because he was successful, he made it, and he let you all know he made it, and he was cocky, he was flamboyant, and he let you know,” he explained.

Some listeners found his use of the word ghetto problematic — Sanders using the word as a synonym for black.

Taking a few photos with rappers like Drake, doesn’t make anyone (including Drake) ghetto.

But nevertheless, Manziel grew up in a rich family, so no! He’s not from a ghetto.
