In the words of Rachel Jeantel: “Lolo Jones? She’s a hater.”
After growing tired of making jokes about Jeantel, the witness who testified during the George Zimmerman trial, and dissing her own fans on Twitter, Lolo Jones decided to take aim at the celebs and try to throw some shade at Drake and Rihanna.
You might have heard that Drake, a sports lover who can often be seen cheesing with and hanging with basketball stars, was asked to host this year’s ESPY awards. He said that it was something of a dream of his, and after his lauded acting/comedic work on Saturday Night Live, the producers behind the awards show probably were impressed enough to give him a shot:
“It’s been a dream of mine for a long time. I watched a guy that I look up to in every aspect of life — Jamie Foxx — do it and I always say if I can follow in his footsteps that’ll be a great career for me, so I was blessed with the opportunity to do it. “SNL” gave me the confidence to do it.”
Well, ready to crap on Drake’s enthusiasm, Lolo Jones came out of nowhere last night to give her two cents on his hosting opportunity, and to also call out Rihanna’s dating history. The Bajan singer has been linked to, and dated, a few athletes in her time, including ex-boyfriend and LA Dodger, Matt Kemp.
This is what Jones said on Twitter:
Of course, you know the Navy and just people who don’t understand her in general lashed out at Jones’ statements, saying everything from she resembles a man to bringing up the fact that she hasn’t been lucky enough to take home gold in the Olympic games (neither in hurdling or as a bobsledder in the winter games). Others actually found the joke quite funny. Jones herself defended her statements by saying that it was all a joke, and posted a video of Seth Meyers and his opening monologue at the 2011 show:
Neither Rihanna nor Drake have commented.
Lolo Jones just baffles me with the statements she makes on Twitter, but what about you? Do you think her “joke” was disrespectful? Or no harm no foul? Talk about it!
