Here’s a Monday treat for you: Ja Rule is back in the public eye.
No, he didn’t release new music. And he didn’t die (like some savages think). Rather, the rapper is popping on the Web for a ridiculous comment he made about the infamous Michael Jordan crying meme. The rapper tweeted (and deleted) a statement that Jordan actually paid $1 every time someone uses his meme, so he’s the one laughing. Not us.
But we’re actually laughing at you, Ja Rule. His assertion is so ludicrous–and wrong–that’s it’s laughable. And Twitter is doing plenty of that. People are coming out in droves crucifying Ja Rule for not knowing how the Internet works. Some shady queens think it’s because he’s stuck in 2003, but that’s none of our business. We’re just the messengers here, and these are some of the best Ja Rule scolding messages on the Internet. Read and try not to cry, or else you’ll owe Mr. Jordan four quarters. (LOL.)

Damn, saw Ja Rule trending and thought he put out a new single. But in reality he said something dumb. Oh well carry on….

Some think Ja Rule is trending bc of the MJ comment, but really it's bc of the pizza slice on his face.
