Jones Changes Tune – Now Blames Employee For Homophobic Comments
And they can thank Jon Jones, and his recent campaign of misinformation, for this ‘Violators Guide to Keeping Your Job.’
Recently the UFC light-heavyweight champion was accused of tormenting a young man with homophobic insults on instagram. Jones’ manager immediately said his phone was stolen, while Jones himself said his social media was hacked.
Now, in a recent interview with Newsday, we have a third version of what happened and it’s actually pretty believable.
“One of the guys thatâ€™s working for us took it into his own hands to reply to the fans some negative stuff. I donâ€™t know if the dude thought he was logged in under his name or if he knew he was logged in under my name. By the time I found out all that stuff had happened, it had been on the Internet for hours.”
“I’ve been called a ni**** before on social media. I had one guy say my kids deserve to be molested on social media. I’ve had guys insult me for having a white fiancee and threatened my family’s life. So I’ve dealt with some real social media shit. I’ve had real-life stuff happen to me, so for somebody to say I lost to Gustafsson isn’t even worth getting my attention.”
