March Madness 2017 Northwestern Kid Crying Meme

This Crying Northwestern Kid Is the Internet's Favorite GIF Right Now

Anyone who follows March Madness knows just how painful it is to see a referee make the wrong call and see your team go from winning to losing. That's what happened during a game between Northwestern and Gonzaga on Sunday when a referee called a foul on Northwestern during the second half and left one kid extremely upset about it.

The kid is actually John, son of Northwestern's athletic director Jim Phillips. In a GIF from CBS sports, you can see just how upset he gets.


The internet felt the kid's pain, so it turned this GIF and screenshots of him into a meme.




Others made predictions about the kid's future.



At least this kid has a passion.
