Jon Jones addresses his “wretched and hateful” trolls
Jon Jones is back to his tweeting ways, this time targeting his legions of trolls.
Since his arrest in September, the highly regarded MMA GOAT has moved away from Twitter – a notorious trash fire of negative feelings. Instead, Jones confined himself to the relatively calmer waters of Instagram, where he documented his rise to heavyweights, and at times, hit back at enemies.
But on Friday, Jones finally indulged in a bit of an afternoon Twitter session, launching a flurry of tweets aimed at all those people who, since his arrest, have dared to smear his beautiful name.
In his opening salute, âBonesâ indirectly aimed at Israel Adesanya, strikingly noting that although the middleweight champion has since passed him in the UFC pound-for-pound rankings, he still can’t defend a withdrawal. Jon Jones, who is now ranked No.4 on the leaderboard, subsequently requested that his name be removed from the list, calling him a “dumb”.
Soon after, Jones turned his attention to these other UFC roster enemies, calling them out for their lack of testicular courage, implying that they would keep their mouths shut if they were potentially in line to fight him.
âI find it rather interesting that none of these heavyweights are talking shit. No comment on my problems. It’s the guys who didn’t want to beat me or who’ve kicked my ass before that seem to be the loudest. Funny how it works, âJones tweeted.
The 34-year-old, who hasn’t fought since March of last year, then addressed his enemies in general, who, like piranhas, have been in the throes of a grudge-fueled binge since the recent indiscretions of Jones. “Bones” conceded that while his recent demeanor has certainly not been like that of a saint, he opposes those who have accumulated his misery just for the sake of it.
“I absolutely love my fans, I know they are disappointed in me right now but still believe in me. I see those who are indifferent, and then there are those trolls who are usually miserable, hateful, sad people. and damn who just want someone else to feel like them.
Finally, Jones claimed that those who trolled him were actually some of his biggest fans.
âMost trolls are still fans whether they realize it or not. I swear the enemies no [sic] the most about you. They remember everything. They ignore the good you do. They see everything.
What do you think? Is the court of public opinion unfairly treating Jon Jones?
