23. Mailman’s Mistake
“Karl Malone impregnating a 13-year-old while in college, “PAT-AT wrote on Reddit. It’s safe to say that we live in a very different time because an NBA star wouldn’t be able to escape the microscopic gaze of the media today. Malone was one of the best players of his generation but never won a championship ring. Of course, much of this was to do with the fact that Michael Jordan’s Bulls reigned supreme.
Nonetheless, this is definitely a scandalous story. “The 80’s in Louisiana were a much different time. Not excusing it,” bigderivative wrote. While it does seem like he is excusing it, it does reveal how society evolved over time. Malone was 20 at the time, which still means that he was an adult. He also refused to pay child support which seems like a terrible decision.
