Karl Malone is, without a doubt, one of the most celebrated NBA players of all time. 'The Mailman' played the power forward position, spending his first 18 seasons with the Utah Jazz. Even today, he is considered one of the greatest power forwards in NBA history.

But today, Twitter is not celebrating his successes and neither is it discussing how he wasn't a good father to Demetress Carte Bell. People on Twitter are rather livid with the suddenly resurfacing of the information that Karl Malone is a pedophile and he got a 13-year-old pregnant when in college. 

"Friendly Reminder: Karl Malone is a dead beat father & got a 13-year-old pregnant while he was f***ing 20 & didn’t even claim the Child name Demetress Bell, a sick person & s paedophile," tweeted an angry user. 

"Since he is trending. Karl Malone is a paedophile," tweeted another user, who pretty much sparked the debate online.

In an interview a long time ago, Bell had admitted that he never fostered any ill feelings against his biological father because of his actions. "I treat it as if my mother went to the sperm bank. I don't hate him for (not being in my life). It made me a better person," he had said

And even though Bell rose from a murky past, some on Twitter are only just making the discovery. "My initial reaction upon seeing Malone trending: 'Oh wow, I hope Karl Malone didn't die.' Reads Tweet Storm. New reaction: 'Well, I bet he wish he WERE dead now...'" 

Many weren't even aware of it until before today. To the several clueless Twitter users, one explained, "He had a child with a whole 13-year-old and didn’t care for the child whatsoever didn’t really have a relationship with him either."

His fan base is completely taken aback by these allegation- that have been doing the rounds for a long time now but only resurfaced earlier today.

"Every time I go on twitter, someone ruins something for me. Today it’s Karl Malone. And no I'm not trying to defend him if it’s true, but I’ve sure as hell never heard about the paedophilia allegations until now. This world is a horrifying place," rued one. "It’s true. He was 20 and she was 13 when she gave birth. He was a neighbour," one claimed

"Karl Malone irked me as a child and I never understood why until I found out he got a 13-year-old pregnant while in college and literally refused to pay child support for the son he had with a minor. Younger me knew bad vibes when I saw it," tweeted a user. 

"Karl Malone was a whole perv out here," added another. 

For those who are completely caught unaware, Malone is an addition to the many prominent personalities who have wronged their audiences with their vile lust. "Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, Karl Malone, Kevin Spacey, Louis CK. That’s just a list of people that I thought were amazing but turned out to be gigantic weirdo creeps. The list could go on but I don’t have the energy," one tweeted.
