Lolo Jones under fire for telling fan to get a relaxer
Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones had some pretty straightforward advice for a fan who dressed up as her for Halloween.
The track star is under fire for telling the fan that she needs a relaxer to be her for Halloween.

Jones made headlines earlier this year for her mockery of Trayvon Martin’s friend Rachel Jeantel who testified in the famous trial.
Lola Jones is of mixed heritage, being of Native American, African, Norwegian and French descent.
Thoughts on Jones’ comments?
Are they racially insensitive or are people up in arms over nothing?
