Wikipedia, Internet declare Jason Terry dead after vicious dunk
Call it the new Mannying.
NBA superstar LeBron James dunked on Jason Terry of the Boston Celtics Monday night so hard it proved the ultimate “and one”: a superb highlight reel and a new meme.
Almost immediately after Terry was thrown to ground, his Wikipedia page was altered to show that the 35-year-old had died from "being viciously dunked on."
The Wikipedia entry, which has since been fixed, helped turn photos of Terry's limp body on the floor into a meme. Terry was a Twitter trending topic Tuesday, with more than 30,000 people sharing videos of the dunk and the following images capitalizing off his fictitious death.
