Lolo Jones Slammed Over Rachel Jeantel “Madea” Comments



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.”

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
