Michael Jordan's Rep Says He's Cool With The 'Crying Jordan' Memes, For Now...
Feb. 9, 2016
A representative for Michael Jordan isn’t crying over the "crying Jordan" meme that's exploded on Twitter.
Jordan's rep told TMZ, "Everyone seems to be having fun with the meme. ... We haven’t seen anyone using it to promote their commercial interests, which is something that we’re monitoring."
Stephan Savoia, photographer of the original picture, told the Wall Street Journal he only recently learned the photo had gone viral; the Jordan-Tom Brady meme is reportedly his favorite.
The news from Jordan's rep is great for everyone who loves photoshopping the Chicago Bulls legend onto the unsuspecting.
But it's bad news for Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.
Better luck next year.
