Olympian Lolo Jones took to Twitter on Thursday night and launched a rather ruthless attack on singer, Rihanna and Canadian rapper, Drake.
“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,” she wrote.
Later defending her comment, writing: “Paleeeze. watching monologues of past espys, my joke was PG compared to how The ESPY Host will roast athletes there.”
Earlier this week, ESPYs confirmed that Drake will be hosting this year’s annual sports award show. Every year, top athletes in the sport’s industry attend the star studded event, and based on Jones’ tweet, the star might have been referring to Ri’s past fling with Dodgers player, Matt Kemp.
Rihanna nor Drake has responded.
However, despite some of the negative comments, Drizzy is more than thrilled to host this year’s show. “I watched a guy that I look up to in every aspect of life, Jamie Foxx, do it and I always say if I can follow in his footsteps that’ll be a great career for me, so I was blessed with the opportunity to do it. SNL gave me the confidence to do it,” he said during an interview on ESPN’s NBA Countdown.
“We’re a few months out but the key is to be memorable, of course, especially in this age with the Internet and everything going viral,” he said in reference to Ellen DeGeneres’ viral selfie from this years Oscars.
