Lolo Jones tweets smack and riles up reactions… again

Track Olympian turned bobsledder Lolo Jones attacked Rihanna via twitter this week and drew immediate criticism via social media.

Jones responded to the news that rapper Drake would be hosting this year’s Espy Awards, airing July 16, 9 p.m. on ESPN, Jones decided to take a swipe at singer Rihanna, who is—once again—dating the Canadian superstar.

“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,” Jones tweeted.

Jones, unfortunately, is known for her mean girl tweets. She previously compared Rachel Jeantel, friend of Trayvon Martin, to Tyler Perry’s Madea. And she also told a fan who dressed like her for Halloween that she needed to get a hair relaxer, NewsOne reported.

Rihanna dated Dodgers’ outfielder Matt Kemp and was rumored to have been seeing New York Knicks’ swingman J.R. Smith.

Jones is no match for Rihanna in twitter reach, with some 34.8 million Twitter followers compared to Jones’ 400,000.

In 2013,  a Twitter user who calls herself “daniesa” tweeted a picture of herself in her Halloween costume, detailing: “Lolo jones 4 Halloween. I just need a hurdle.”

Jones responded to the tweet on November 1 by stating: “And a relaxer. I haven’t rocked curls since h.s.”

The hairstyle was not a costume and the criticism of Jones was fierce. It wasn’t the first time she’d tweeted herself into hot water, and apparently won’t be the last.
