Glasses Malone took to Twitter yesterday (November 4) to express his approval of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s criticism of Michael Jordan.
“Me & Kareem Abdul Jabber agree on Jordan….,” the Watts, California rapper writes with a link to a Fox Sports article entitled “Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Michael Jordan chose shoes over human rights.”
The article quotes an interview with NPR where the NBA all-time leading scorer outs Michael Jordan over his “Republicans buy sneakers, too” comment.
“You can’t be afraid of losing shoe sales if you’re worried about your civil and human rights,” Abdul-Jabbar says. “You can’t be worried about that. That’s just the way it is. He took commerce over conscience. That’s unfortunate for him, but he’s got to live with it.
In an interview with The Breakfast Club in September, Glasses Malone expressed similar sentiments toward the basketball legend.
“I don’t wear Jordans no more ’cause he be into all of that,” he says about Jordan’s connections with the prison industrial complex. “He invests in all that. He invests into more prisons than schools. I ain’t really into him right now. I won’t buy another pair of his shoes for sure.”
