Titus, who is just two, was invited to show his repertoire of shots live on Fox News. He had risen to prominence after a series of Youtube videos showed an uncanny ability to shoot hoops.
The tiny toddler, who was accompanied by his proud dad, was wowing viewers with his baby three-pointers when TV host Brian Kilmeade tried to help by returning the ball.
Unfortunately, he released the pass with a bit too much power, the ball hitting young Titus in the face and causing him to burst into tears.
Titus is fine – and his dad seemed to see the funny side – but unsurprisingly Kilmeade has been getting all manner of abuse on Twitter.
While it is unlikely he will be reprimanded for the gaffe, a voice off-camera was heard quipping "you’re fired".
