Take, for example, his latest tiff with celebrity and former model Christine Teigen.
The two clashed over social media on Tuesday afternoon, in what seemed to have started with Kent State student Kaitlin Bennett—who famously took graduation photos with an AR-15.

“I’ve just gotten word that the internet does in fact, not care,” Teigen replied.

Pearson though came back with this:
In a relatively short time, Pearson has skyrocketed to having more than 250,000 followers on Twitter. Check out more from his page here: @thecjpearson
