The Story Behind the ‘Crying Jordan’ Meme (That Even the Original Photographer Loves)

The Crying Jordan meme has become an all-star in its own right. It’s now visually synonymous with sports fails. DJ Gallo put it best in the backstory video — where even the Pulitzer-winning photographer who took the original, Stephan Savoia, admits that it cracks him up — when the sports writer said, “The internet decided, ‘Hey, let’s make every joke the Jordan meme.’ So anytime anyone loses, anytime anyone falls down on the court or anything bad that happens in sports, they get the Jordan meme face. There hasn’t been an original joke, really, on the internet, sports related, in about two years.”
