You may have missed it on Friday afternoon, but Javale McGee might just have stumbled onto genius when he tweeted the following:
shoutout to flint michigan.... and a anti-shoutout to the serial killer there right now... not cool
And you wonder why it's worth your time following athletes on Twitter. I mean...
- What a perfect (and tragic) way to encapsulate Flint, Michigan.
- "Anti-shoutout to the serial killer there" really sneaks up on you, huh?
- Just the general concept of an "anti-shoutout" has a lot of potential.
This needs to catch on among all athletes, particularly if they're offering social commentary on something like, say, a serial killer. Just an excellent way to break things down for people. Let's try it:
Shoutout to all my troops in Afghanistan ... Major anti-shoutout to the Taliban and all the Jihadist #haters #Realtalk
Shoutout to Brett Favre ... And a major anti-shoutout to players sendin cell phone pics #receivedontgive #lessonlearned
Shoutout to Chinese food at 3 a.m. ... And a anti-shoutout to #China. Communist superpowers SMH
Shoutout to #Google holdin down the search game ... And a anti-shoutout to the net neutrality disputes. FCC where u at? #policethesestreets
Shoutout to Snooki and the whole Jersey Shore fam ... Major anti-shoutout to syphillis #wrapitupvinny

Shoutout to all my peoples in Gaza ... Anti-shoutout to religious border disputes #squashbeef #sayshalomtoallah
Shoutout to my peoples in NYC ... Anti-shoutout to all the hipsters in Brooklyn. Lookin like Pau in them skinny jeans LMAO
Like I said, guys. The anti-shoutout has a lot of potential. Make it happen, Javale!
