“I hope you have a good year,” Jackson said in a follow-up video posted to his Instagram. “I hope somewhere you can find some heart and find some passion for the game and have a good year. I really wish you the best.
“Old? I’m 40. Thank God, I’m happy to see 40. Bum? I ain’t never been that. You know that. I’m from the old school, bruh. I’m cut under the old law. Respect it or check it. … Say man, make sure your energy is straight when you see me, bruh. I’m pretty sure you know who I am.”
Nick Wiggins then reinserted himself into the drama in Jackson’s Instagram comments (warning: contains profanity):
