Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan may not care to sue over the ‘Crying Jordan’ meme, but that doesn’t mean he likes it. According to former teammate Charles Oakley, MJ isn’t a fan.

While speaking with TMZ about Charles Barkley, Oakley was questioned about the world’s most beloved viral crying face.

“It is what it is,” Oakley started. “One of the greatest players of all players, or all-time ... people like seeing that. They keep doing it.”

Then, he told the cameraman that Jordan doesn’t care for the meme.

“No, he don’t like it. Nah,” he said.
