This is a very scary time, so as I am on my twitter timeline, I see that Earvin “Magic” Johnson is mysteriously trending. The coronavirus is something that should not be taken lightly, and while the reason why Johnson is trending is morally wrong and maybe a little disgusting, it’s equally hilarious. People are just having some fun on a very serious night. I think even Magic would laugh at some of these, so don’t feel bad. Flip the pages for a little bit of levity on a night like this.
You’ve been warned.
