The internet has gotten its hands on Ja Morant’s old Instagram, soexclusive12, and the photos are better than you could imagine.

March 2023 has seen Ja Morant feature in the headlines repeatedly as a result of matters off the court, but fans have been laughing this week at a more lighthearted story surrounding the point guard.

Morant is currently suspended from playing for the Memphis Grizzlies, after an incident involving an Instagram live stream, but the point guard’s social media presence hasn’t always been a source of controversy.

In fact, Morant’s old Instagram from back in the day was actually pretty wholesome, and now it’s been dug up for the whole world to enjoy.

The account, where Morant used to go by the handle @soexclusive12_, first became active in 2013, when the would-be basketball star was just 13 years old.

Morant’s bio reads “Follow Mhe, I Follow Back”, though with the account now boasting just shy of 90,000 followers, that promise is looking increasingly unlikely.

Twiter reacts to Ja Morant’s old Instagram

As you can imagine, Twitter has had a field day with Morant’s old soexclusive12 Instagram account.

Reacting to the old snaps, one user wrote: “Thank God I deleted my MySpace, original Facebook and original Twitter”, while another poster added “the captions got me weak”.

Another user urged others to be mindful of what they post online, a wise lesson indeed:

Some users did stand up for Morant though, with one tweeter daring others to share their old social media accounts. We doubt she had many takers on that offer though…
