Lolo Jones Made an Ill-Advised Joke About Drake Hosting the ESPYs, and the Twitter Backlash Was Brutal

The choice of Drake as host for the 2014 ESPY Awards was disappointing. I love the guy, but he is BFFs with literally (okay, figuratively) every famous athlete in America, which means you can pretty much say goodbye to all the edgy jokes we’ve come to know and love—the ones that knocked the rich prima donnas down a peg and made them squirm in their seats while making us all feel superior to them for once.

I’m not the only one who feels this way. American Olympian Lolo Jones agrees with me.

Of course, whereas I am content to state my displeasure in constructive terms, Lolo decided to take the edgy joke thing into her own hands, posting this on Twitter yesterday:

Whoa. Now that’s a burn.

Unfortunately, Lolo did not take into account the fact that Rihanna and Drake have a combined 49.5 million Twitter followers. And a great many of those people did not appreciate the humor. They hit hard, and they hit below the belt.

Here’s a sampling of the heat she took:

Wow, Big Bad Booty Daddy. I’m sure Rihanna really appreciates your kind words of support.
