Lolo Jones tweets insensitive message to paralyzed football player
 

 
American hurdler Lolo Jones received an unusual, lighthearted request on her Twitter page recently. "Want to race me," read the note from Eric LeGrand, the inspirational Rutgers football player who was paralyzed in a 2010 game.

Jones had never heard of LeGrand or looked at his avatar, which features a picture of him sitting in a wheelchair, and wrote back, "get checked for a concussion. clearly u've been hit in the head... cos u arent beating a track athlete."

Olympian Lolo Jones basically just talked smack to a man in a wheelchair.

It was that sort of quick-trigger, unfunny messaging that got Lolo into hot water the last time she sent a thoughtless tweet.

Back in July, Lolo suggested Americans would start performing better at the Olympics when "da Gun shootin competition" started. That tweet came eight days after one of the worst gun massacres in United States history at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises.

Neither tweet was, by itself, intentionally insensitive. Lolo didn't know LeGrand was paralyzed, nor is it fair to think she was talking about a crazed gunman winning medals in "da Gun shootin competition."

It was the the timing, reaction and the lack of awareness of one's surroundings that made them cringe-worthy tweets. Lolo doing little to put out her fires didn't help the cause either. Rather than saying something politically correct like "I'm sorry for the victims of the shooting and didn't intend any reference," she went on the defensive and acted like everyone else was wrong for making a.ssumptions about her tweet. Perception meant nothing.

It's the same thing with LeGrand. When Lolo found out LeGrand is a quadrapalegic, her first instinct was to whine about how much hate mail she was going to get for the tweet. There were no public apologies forthcoming. It took a personal message from LeGrand to start communication. He said he didn't take anything personal and understands.

"Thx, Lolo wrote back. "Getting trashed by tons of ppl glad ur not one of em."

yea basically, she always acts like the victim, even she was the one full of sh*t, and honestly the way she reacted to his joke tweet was pretty smug and arrogant even if he wasnt paralyzed

exactly, she only thinks of herself. All she had to do was say sorry, but instead she made it about her "Getting trashed by tons of ppl glad ur not one of em".

this n*gga is in a fkn wheelchair for taking a hit, the exact same sh*t she just joked about. Its like she is blind or some sh*t

It doesn't matter if she heard of dude or not. Not a smart comment to make to anyone who's disabled. His avatar on twitter clearly shows he's in a wheelchair.

I can't fault her on this one. She gets so many tweets a day I'm sure and probably didnt realize what dudes situation was. Her twitter account compared to the ones of regular people is vastly different. While some of you can look at specific tweets and avys she gets thousands a second and can't do that right away.

Oh yeah, let's stop with the check his avy pic first bi*ch comments because everybody on the net uses their real pic on their avy. I am not one to usually defend this chick but I understand her on this one.

that wasnt the part i had an issue wit. I can understand that part bc she didnt know him, but once she became aware instead of apologizing she made it about herself and played the victim role.
