Chipper Jones challenged military veteran to fight on Twitter
Former Atlanta Braves slugger Chipper Jones is known to do some pretty dumb things on Twitter from time to time, and the argument he had with one of his followers early Thursday morning was no exception.
Twitter user @thatgrayboy decided to call out Jones by claiming that Chipper snubbed him out of an autograph when he was 8 years old. Jones took the accusation personally and things escalated in a hurry.
It wasn’t until @thatgrayboy brought Chipper’s girlfriend into it that the former eight-time All-Star really went off.
Jones was apparently determined to get the last word, so he allegedly decided to take the verbal sparring match to direct messages. I don’t know what made him think the dude he was arguing with wouldn’t just share the messages with everyone anyway.
Chipper didn’t delete any of his tweets, and he followed up with more than one thought about how he doesn’t believe @thatgrayboy when he says he was in the military. That’s a pretty bold accusation to make.
As we said, Jones is no stranger to making himself look bad on Twitter. The thoughts he shared about Sandy Hook earlier this year were a perfect example of that.
