After the University of Loyola-Chicago’s fairy tale college basketball season ended Saturday with a loss in the Final Four, memes began to surface, mocking the team’s inspirational chaplain, Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt.

The Crying Jordan memes popped online after No. 3 Michigan defeated Loyola-Chicago, 69-57. A head shot of Michael Jordan, with tears streaming down his face, was superimposed over the face of the 98-year-old nun, who has rooted for the Ramblers since the early 1960s.

Another meme showed a young boy faking out an elderly woman during a one-on-one basketball game. The boy drives to the basket as the woman tumbles to the ground.

#Michigan said bye bye to #SisterJean in the #FinalFour,” the meme read.

A third tweet showed a group of people tossing a wheelchair with a fake elderly woman strapped to it over a railing into a ravine.

It just goes to show that when it comes to the internet, nobody is off limits.
