    What? SI writing what it did or Zeke suing?

    Respected journalists should not have assumed that he meant he was high on dope just because he used the word faded. We're taught not to assume anything. Elliott was right to call SI out for that.

    Posters on here meanwhile are free to always assume the worst, which many of them usually do.

    He should hurry up and take a drug test to further his claim of being drug free.

    I have said faded for the following things. Being tired, drunk, or high. Or all things together. SI jumped the gun for sure.

    Hmmm ... faded for me either is in reference to a haircut or something getting lighter due to sunlight, time, etc. When I'm tired, I say I'm tired.

    To each their own. I said it a lot more when I was in my 20s I doubt I say it much anymore.

    Bwahahahahahahahaha...big bully zeke doesn’t like being the victim, how ironic! He can sure throw the punches, he just can’t take them. Stay off social media you buffoon and you won’t have to worry about it.

    The big baby sure does seem to be spending a lot of time suing people these days, guess he has a lot of time on his hands since his partying options are limited.

    Remember...it’s never his fault.

    He can’t even stay at home and stay out of the headlines. How hard is it to shut your yapper on social media?

    I love how he walks into a pot store in 2016 IIRC, admitted to doing a lot of drugs in college, says he’s faded which means high by every definition I’ve read but now wants to sue for someone saying he’s high?! This just keeps getting better.

    And why would the same people that say “who cares if he was high, they can smoke weed now” be offended that Sports Illustrated said he was high if it’s not such a big deal?

    So if someone said I was drunk on social media after I said I was krunked (but I really didn’t mean drunk) then so what?

    The ONLY thing I envy about the ewok is he can smoke weed now and not lose his job, I can.

    And I’m not big on sins if you know what I mean so I’m not too worried about it.

    Looked up the word "faded" in it's modern use. It means: "High, stoned, drunk".

    I was not aware that the word was even being used that way.
