Fans of Cramer came to his defense on social media by praising him for admitting he was wrong.
\u201cWatching Jim Cramer have a mental breakdown on live TV is sad. I know Cramer isn't the only one feeling this way. After one of the worst years ever in the #StockMarket, people are starting lose it. Take care of your mental health. Your family needs you.\n\n#MentalHealthMatters\u201d

\u201c@buccocapital Actually respect this a ton to get on national TV and candidly admit you got it wrong and made a mistake. There's a distinct paucity of these sort of mea culpas in public markets investing so credit to Jim where credit is due.\u201d
