Talk about messed up priorities. After Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp lifted Georgia’s covid-19 coronavirus lockdown, crowds gathered to buy the latest edition of Air Jordan sneakers. The scene took place at Atlanta’s Greenbriar Mall after the newly released Air Jordan 5 sold out online, according to the New York Post.

Defying social distancing guidelines, the crowds waited outside Jimmy Jazz on Saturday, May 2 to buy the “Fire Red” sneakers, which were re-released after NBA living legend Michael Jordan’s documentary, “The Last Dance” has been airing on ESPN.

Jamarlin goes solo to discuss the COVID-19 crisis. He talks about the failed leadership of Trump, Andrew Cuomo, CDC Director Robert Redfield, Surgeon General Jerome Adams, and New York Mayor de Blasio.

“Everyone I talked to was in line for a new Air Jordan 5 that sold out online,” NBC producer Charlie Gile tweeted. He was the first to break the story.

One user told him he’d missed an even bigger scene at Marietta’s air show. The crowds are continuing to gather despite Georgia having an increase in covid-19 fatalities since the state began reopening.

Some social media users decried the shoppers’ prioritizing purchasing a shoe over their health. Others told Gile to make sure he covered the other areas where massive crowds were gathering.

Gile has posted several scenes of crowds at events since the country began reopening.
