CJ Gardner-Johnson had his car stolen on Monday after the Giants win and detailed a little on IG Live. Had to be a Cowboys fan:

CJGJ needs one of those steering wheel sticks your grandmother had:

Or maybe not…

There’s a rise in Kia thefts after a group of kids in Milwaukee called the “Kia Boys” rose to popularity showing everyone how easy it was to steal Kia and Hyundai models between 2010-2021 via Chris DiLella and Andrea Day at CNBC:

A dangerous challenge spreading on TikTok and other social media platforms has car owners and police departments on alert across the country — challenging young teens to steal certain cars off the street using a USB cord.

The target? Certain makes and models of 2010-2021 Kia and Hyundai vehicles that use a mechanical key, not a key fob and push-button to start the car. Investigators tell CNBC the trend started last year and the number of cars being stolen is continuing to surge across the country. 

The thieves post videos online of stealing and driving the cars, using the hashtag “Kia Boys” — which has more than 33 million views on TikTok. The social media company said in a statement it “does not condone this behavior which violates our policies and will be removed if found on our platform.”

Screw the taxes. Maybe this is the reason why most Eagles players live in Moorestown and Haddonfield.

P.S. I know where CJGJ can get a car if he’s in a pinch. Meek Mill is out here selling bulletproof cars with Level 6 bomb protection like it’s Facebook Marketplace:
