As soon as Michael Jordan walked into NRG Stadium to watch his UNC Tar Heels try and win the NCAA National Championship, we knew the "Crying Jordan" memes were coming.
All it took was the first Villanova hot streak and the first sign of despair from Jordan to set Twitter and meme makers alight with the prospect of Jordan actually crying at the basketball game.
Then, we witnessed the unbelievable meme of Michael Jordan putting the Crying Jordan face on himself!
In the wake of all the memes and UNC's last-second loss, there are those on Twitter who appear to be calling for an end to the Crying Jordan meme. As in, let's not use Michael Jordan's crying face in a meme ever again.
With Twitter being Twitter, though, more than a few voices came out of the woodwork to shut down such radical thinking. These are the best reactions opposing the calls for the Crying Jordan meme to be retired.
