Instagram user “bellamilagroserrano” was at a club, and ran into someone she didn’t know at all, but as she put it, “They told me he was famous,” so she took a photo with him and posted it. Of course, if she had just asked any sports fan in the immediate vicinity who that guy was, she would have gotten the answer: The Answer, Allen Iverson himself.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. In case anyone else needs a clue, Iverson had a 14-year NBA career, during which he went to the all-star game 11 times, was the 1997 rookie of the year, was the 2001 NBA MVP, and finished seventh all-time in points per game (at 26.7).
So, kind of a big star. However, he hasn’t played in four years, and the woman appears to be fairly young, so maybe we should cut her some more slack than others on social media are doing. On the other hand, is it asking too much for someone who knows she is taking a photo with someone “famous,” to ascertain the identity of said famous person before broadcasting her ignorance of said famous person to the world?
This almost certainly wouldn’t be Iverson’s advice, but when it comes to Instagram, perhaps this young woman needs a little more practice.
