However, it appears a new athlete may have taken up the torch as far as skepticism is concerned.
You may remember when Jaden Smith burst onto the scene in a big way a while back by channeling his inner Jack Handey by tweeting out “deep” thoughts about the nature of existence that managed to twist plenty of minds into a pretzel.
