The crying Jordan meme has become one of the most viral images to be photoshopped after a loss in sports matchups, music releases or any other pop cultural phenomenon.
The original image is from the Chicago Bulls legend’s 1999 induction ceremony into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. People can not make money when they are the subject of memes because the photos are manipulations that are posted on social media, which is generally not regulated by copyright law.
The New York legend removed his original post and then went on to tease his nearly 200,000 followers. Some sent him memes of himself photoshopped with crying Jordan on the cover of his Unruly book and his Twitter profile picture.
“Y’all laughing but every time someone screen grabs that tweet I get 50cents!!!” he jokes.
JaRule continues laughing by posting that the Earth is flat and that he supports Donald
