The response from James was swift and silent—unfollowing Perkins on Twitter. Perkins’ reaction to this digital snub was both bold and controversial. He tweeted,


“Everybody didn’t follow Jesus, I’ll be ok,”



drawing immediate attention and backlash from fans and analysts alike. The tweet quickly became a hot topic, with numerous users responding to Perkins’ self-comparison to Jesus. The reactions ranged from humorous to critical, highlighting the divided opinions on Perkins’ statement.
