Larry Johnson is approaching “Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams” levels of conspiratorial lunacy and has peddled more trash takes in the past year than almost anyone with a Twitter handle.

August 2019:

February 2020:

  • Said LeBron James worships Lucifer and calls the Super Bowl halftime show a ‘child sex trafficking ritual.’
  • Claimed Dwyane Wade ‘sacrificed‘ the transgender son he had outside of marriage.
  • Whatever this means…

March 2020:

The former Chiefs running back, who has been arrested at least six times since 2003, is back at it again with a suspicious theory linking the deaths of Chadwick Boseman and Kobe Bryant.


Oh no. There are actual human beings that are riding Johnson’s conspiracy train…

Ok, enough internet for today.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
