Creation and timeline[edit] The image was used in 2012, without modification, to comment on Jordan's decision to buy the Charlotte Bobcats NBA franchise. The photoshopped head alone was first used in 2014 by posters on internet message board[2] "Crying Jordan" began to attract mainstream media attention in late 2015 and early 2016.[3][4] The meme began to spark a backlash in the sports media in early 2016, as some sports media figures complained that the meme was unoriginal or had become overused.[5] An open-source[6] mobile app called "The Crying Jordan Meme Generator" allows users to easily add the Jordan image to other images, and has been downloaded by several thousand people.[2][7] Media critics have suggested that the popularity of the meme stems in part because "[i]t's the ultimate alpha [male] in a vulnerable position",[2] and that "people simultaneously mock and celebrate ... a masculine star who expresses vulnerability".[7]

Usage[edit] Outside the Internet world, the meme has been referenced in interviews by various athletes and public figures, such as basketball player Draymond Green, professional golfer Jordan Spieth,[8] and the rapper Schoolboy Q. [9] Various athletes, like Steph Curry, Jon Jones and Roberto Luongo have also used the image self-deprecatingly on social media after struggling or failing in games, or having suffered some other misfortune.[2][10] Outside of sports, the image has also been used in combination with images of politicians like Barack Obama and Marco Rubio.[7]

Ties to Jordan[edit] The meme was heavily used after North Carolina (Jordan's alma mater) lost to Villanova in the 2016 National Championship, during which Jordan was in attendance.[11] On November 22nd, 2016, when awarding a Presidential Medal of Freedom to Jordan, President Obama joked that he was "more than just an internet meme".[12] Jordan's spokesperson has told the press that Jordan himself finds the meme funny.[7]
