The Crying Jordan meme is probably never going away, at least not as long as Twitter is the premier platform to react to live sports. It's impossible to avoid Michael Jordan's sad face if you're on Twitter during a major sporting event, but Michael Jordan doesn't use social media and told kids at a basketball camp last year that he's "lost" when it comes to viral memes.
40-year-old rapper Ja Rule became the latest victim of the meme Monday after being tricked by a fake story that claimed Jordan was collecting royalties every time a crying Jordan meme was shared online.
Ja Rule deleted the tweet, but I doubt he knows how screenshots and the Internet work. pic.twitter.com/VbL8xYqyGI— mary75mary (@Maryyyyy75) May 9, 2016
The Internet quickly replaced Ja Rule's head with Jordan's, but he seems to be taking the mistake in stride.
