Olympic star Lolo Jones just doesn’t know when to keep her foot out of her mouth. The latest is a comment she made in reference to rapper Drake hosting this year’s ESPY awards.
@lolojones It’s amazing that Drake is hosting the @Espys but it’s gonna be tough for him to hand out all those awards to Rihanna’s ex boyfriends
Black Twitter was not amused:
@blackamazon Lolojones went from winter to summer and the only metal she could get was the lead in her feet .
@goldietaylor Here’s what I really believe. Lashing out at women of color is a device you use to cover your own sense of inadequacy. @lolojones
@luvvie Lolo Jones stays losing. In sports and Twitter. She always ends up dragged. Again, in both. Bless her heart.
@ismashfizzle Only person who loses more than Lolo Jones is Ralph Nader.
In November, Jones was criticized for telling a fan who had paid homage to her to “get a relaxer.” Lolo Jones is of mixed heritage, being of Native American, African, Norwegian and French descent.
Thoughts on Jones’ tweet and Black Twitter’s reaction?
