Washington's Javale McGee Introduces The Anti-Shoutout

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 coolless than a minute ago via web

And you wonder why it's worth your time following athletes on Twitter. I mean...

  1. What a perfect (and tragic) way to encapsulate Flint, Michigan.
  2. "Anti-shoutout to the serial killer there" really sneaks up on you, huh?
  3. 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 #Realtalkless than a minute ago via web

Like I said, guys. The anti-shoutout has a lot of potential. Make it happen, Javale!
