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.

    Rachel Jeantel call George Zimmerman a “crazing ass cracker” and nobody cares. Paula Deen says “nigger” 20 years ago and everybody hates her….

    No correlation but Ms. Jeantel was an itiot on the stand and I don’t blame Lolo

  • Seahawk

    Nobody cares about her use of “cracker?” Wake up.

  • The Legend

    “crazing” lol takes one idiot to point out another lol

  • EE

    Rachel Jeantel was a blithering idiot on the stand…period

  • Anonymous

    Welcome to last week.

  • Bon

    That’s the problem with double standards.

  • Seahawk

    Her use of cracker carried the news cycle last week. If people don’t care that’s their prerogative, but to infer it went unreported is bunk.

  • cris

    because white people were never slaved by black people, and white people were never though as inferior compare to other races. DUMBASSES. of course, it’s not the same.

  • Mark May

    So, Lolo isn’t allowed to make a funny joke?
