It's the meme question everyone wants to know -- how does Michael Jordan feel about the crying face image that's taken over the Internet?
Finally, we have an answer ...
A rep for the NBA legend says MJ is actually cool with the phenomenon ... telling us, "Everyone seems to be having fun with the meme."
As everyone knows, Michael is fiercely protective of his brand -- but his rep says, "We haven’t seen anyone using it to promote their commercial interests, which is something that we’re monitoring."
Translation: you're free to continue using MJ's mug to mock people on social media. But the second you try to exploit it for cash ... you're Bryon Russell in '98 -- done.
