Ja Rule is not good at the Internet.
This is the guy who jumped on Twitter and begged his fans to change his height on Wikipedia from 5'6 to 5'9, apparently unaware that he could have easily done it himself.
In his latest web blunder, the 40-year old unleashed a Tweet which claimed Michael Jordan gets a dollar for every time somebody uses the Crying Jordan meme.
His information was based on a parody article from a website called Tmzcomedy. When Rule realized he had been duped, he took down the Tweet. But enough people saw it to give the gullible rapper quite a good and well-deserved social media dragging.
