Michael Jordan’s decision to speak out against police violence was noteworthy enough to warrant mention in a newspaper on the other side of the world, but perhaps the editors could have chosen a better photo. 

A newspaper in the east African nation of Malawi ran an item about Jordan’s statement and used the only photo of MJ you ever see anymore. You know the one.


I don’t know how much they like the NBA in Malawi, but hopefully they are familiar with the Crying Jordan meme and pulled off a solid international troll job.
