Lolo Jones takes shot at Rihanna, gets blasted for it
Drake signed on to host the 2014 ESPYs earlier this week. As expected, there have been a variety of opinions about whether he will be the right man for the job. The most viral opinion following the announcement has come from Lolo Jones, who decided to take a shot at Rihanna after hearing the big news.
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

For those of you who don’t keep up on gossip, Drake and Rihanna were supposedly “all over each other” at a club recently and were spotted making out. They also both attended a recent Los Angeles Clippers game.
To our knowledge, Rihanna has dated two professional athletes. She definitely dated Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp and was rumored to have been seeing New York Knicks swingman JR Smith a couple of year backs. Rihanna also has way more fans than Jones, and Twitter reacted accordingly. Here is a sample of some of the tweets Deadspin rounded up.

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

In other words, Lolo got the exact reaction she was looking for. We know she loves attention, so that fact that she got almost 5,000 retweets and infinity mentions must have put a huge smile on her face.
