Lolo Jones Belongs In Twitter Jail: Joke About Zimmerman Trial Backfires

This isn’t the first time Olympic hurdler/bobsled enthusiast Lolo Jones has gone off the rails on Twitter, so you’d think she’s know better. But for some reason she had an urge to post this:

Rachel Jeantel of course is the friend of Trayvon Martin who was with him on the phone during the last moments of his life. Jeantel gave testimony in the trial of George Zimmerman last week.

Jones made the above tweet right after the testimony, then deleted it.

Many were not amused.
