Jefferson on tactics used to silence nagging fans
Richard Jefferson’s favorite way to shut up bullying fans was to approach her friends and tell them they were underperforming.
Jefferson tells of “a guy who sat in the front row with his girl and tried to show off. He babbled and babbled, but you don’t want to pay any attention to these people because all they really want is a story.”
Jefferson: “You’re selling yourself too cheap”
Jefferson: “He said to me, ‘Jefferson, you suck!’. I didn’t look at him. I looked straight at his girlfriend and said, “Hey! Is that your type?” and she kind of smiled and blushed and he was going to show off, like, ‘Yeah, that’s my girl, blah blah blah,’ so I looked right at her and said, ‘You’re selling yourself cheap!’ I’ll just move on. His whole day was ruined.”
