    Couldn't have self-checkout if you did. Customer wouldn't know how to remove it themselves. And if they did, they could still remove it and not pay. Only solution is to not have self-checkout, or have somebody employed only to monitor self-checkout and remove security tags.

    How did Rex Chapman go from NBA star to shoplifter to Twitter legend?

    Cleaned up his life, used his celebrity and clever tweets to amass his Twitter hoard.

    He's got some of the best aggregated tweets/comedy I've seen. Once he got political, he attracted a lot of people and ticked off a lot of people, too. lol.

    I don’t follow him but my buddies all send me his tweets. His Magpie attacking the terrified kid tweet really pissed me off. Little kid screaming in terror and pain, hilarious.

    So that is the real Rex Chapman?

    Good for him to bounce back.

    His politics shouldn’t annoy you unless you’re MAGA.

    It’s funny when people attack him for being a drug addicted thief. Like that hurts him. He admits his past and has moved on with his life.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rex_Chapman

    Chapman has been labeled as a social media influencer for his work on Twitter, with over a million followers.[5][18] Chapman, however, doesn't quite agree with being labeled that way, "I'm not even sure what that means... Me, an influencer? Man, I hope not."[5] He first joined Twitter as part of his job as a broadcaster.[5] He began attracting followers after posting a video of dolphins charging into a paddle boarder, the first in a series of "block or charge?" tweets.[5] Besides "Block or charge", Chapman also is known for tweeting "Dogs bruh", "Content I'm here for" and light-hearted or funny videos.[4]:16:12–16:22[5][18] Chapman sees himself, "bringing people together, man. One stupid video at a time."[5] This attitude reflects his desire to stay focused on the positive rather than negative with social media.[18] To find the videos he tweets, Chapman will search daily using selected keywords and while also relying on recommendations from certain Twitter users.[18][19]

    After previously declining any kind of sponsorship, during the COVID-19 pandemic Chapman was able to raise more than $150,000 to support those experiencing financial hardship.[5] Despite his social media success, Chapman is glad that it was not around when he was a professional athlete.[18] Since 2019, Chapman has been the television presenter of a Block or Charge show which appeared on Adult Swim and built off his tweets.[19][20]
