It seems J.R. Smith has yet to grasp this whole social media thing without creating a little controversy. Even when the Cleveland Cavaliers guard uses his thumbs to publicize good works, he still finds a way to stick his foot in his mouth.
Smith, who will play in game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, deleted a meme referring to Caitlyn Jenner as "that science project" on his Instagram shortly after posting it Wednesday.
"Shout out to Akon !" the image reads. "He is about to supply 600 million africans with solar power. Im really upset that this isnt major news but that science project bruce jenner is #Society"
Smith reposted the image with his own caption: "Hmmm... what's more important?"
The meme — which is a part of a trend where people compare Jenner to another news story as a way of ridiculing her gender change — compared Jenner with singer Akon's solar power initiative in Africa.
Tweets coming back to haunt Smith are nothing new to the oft-troubled player — especially during the playoffs. In 2012, Smith was fined $25,000 for posting a picture of a woman in his bed wearing a thong.
