In today’s digital world, if you take an ‘L’ in any sort of way, expect to have your face replaced with crying Michael Jordan’s face spread around on social media.

It’s the meme that has become synonymous with saltiness, even though the original picture was taken at his 2009 Basketball Hall of Fame induction.  And while the internet always has the last laugh, many wonder what the iconic basketball player and Jordan brand legend thinks about the meme.

According to TMZ, Jordan’s reps say he doesn’t mind.  MJ and his team noted that “everyone seems to be having fun with the meme,” and they are fine with the image floating around… As long as you’re not using it to promote your brand or business.

“We haven’t seen anyone using it to promote their commercial interests, which is something that we’re monitoring,” says a member from Jordan’s camp.

So unless your plan to use MJ’s tears to your financial benefit, feel free to keep to keep the meme going.

The man is always about his business. #MajorKey
