Lolo Jones Slammed Over Rachel Jeantel “Madea” Comments

By  | 

One Twitter user said it best when he wrote to athlete Lolo Jones, “You suck at track, but you are AWESOME at always saying the wrong thing.” Jones, who has an uncanny knack for saying the wrong things, is under fire after criticizing Rachel Jeantel.

Rachel is the Florida teen who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin before he was shot and killed. The woman has been testifying this week in the George Zimmerman trial, but has made headlines for her courtroom behavior.

“Rachel Jeantel looked so irritated during the cross-examination that I burned it on DVD and I’m going to sell it as Madea Goes to Court,” Lolo wrote. That comment didn’t sit well with a lot of people who immediately slammed the Olympian, writing things like:

  • “Instead of insulting Rachel who is defending the LIFE of a child murdered w/o cause, focus on how you still have no medals.”
  • “You really don’t have much brain @lolojones”
  • “that’s why you ain’t never won nothing but light skin struggle.”

But one Twitter user said it best when she simply wrote to Miss Jones, “Stop.”
