On Thursday night, Lolo Jones got a little snarky towards Rihanna when it was revealed that Drake would be hosting the ESPYs this year.
It's amazing that Drake is hosting the @Espys but it's gonna be tough for him to hand out all those awards to Rihanna's ex boyfriends

That’s a largely harmless, cute joke. Nothing wrong with it, and there’s plenty of truth behind it. Of course, being that this is the internet, her joke couldn’t just be laughed off. Deadspin compiled some of the most brutal tweets Jones got from angry Rihanna fans. Here’s a PG sampling of them.
If they put a finish line at the end of the red carpet at the ESPY's, @lolojones won't enter the building.

Rihanna has an album called "loud" which ironically describes the sound of that hurdle @lolojones missed

Man. Imagine if Piers Morgan made a Rihanna joke – the Twitterverse would probably collapse upon itself. But hey, at least Lolo kept her name in the spotlight now that the Winter Olympics are over and people can’t whine about her earning a spot on the US bobsled team.
