“Hi Haters!” James responded as he quote retweeted that article praising Space Jam 2’s box office dominance. He also included a bright smiley emoji to really make sure his point was made.
Space Jam 2: A New Legacy squeezed virtually every piece of intellectual property that Warner Bros could into the same movie. It was called a “cash-grab”, “needless”, and “forced” by critics. The money is still green for King James.
