The Journey Continues
Since the article was published, Sim has been in the news again. This time for his hilarious, yet insensitive, reaction to a tweet from Toronto Raptors player DeMar DeRozan. On Aug. 10, DeRozan tweeted a picture of himself and teammate Jakob Poeltl taking a break during their game against the Memphis Grizzlies. In the caption, DeRozan wrote “Equal opportunity hater.”
Sim took to Twitter to respond with a screenshot of an article about him that originally appeared on Sportsnet’s website. The article discusses how Sim has overcome adversity in his life and become one of Canada’s top basketball prospects. In the tweet, Sim wrote, “I’m not a hater just because I’m different.”
It’s clear that Sim is still learning about social media and how to use it as a platform to share his views and experiences. However, his response is both funny and relatable, showing that he has a great sense of humor.
