DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Lolo Jones’ attempt at humor in a video that’s gone viral received a chilly reception from some members of the bobsledding community.

Like that, the U.S. hurdler finds herself under scrutiny again.

Jones posted a Vine video in which she pokes fun at a check she received for $741.84 in prize money from the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation. In the spoof, she picks up the phone and says, “I’m going to be a little bit late on my rent.”

And now, instead of concentrating on the U.S. championships this week in her hometown, she’s explaining herself. She insisted it was simply a joke and has already talked to some of her bobsledding teammates.

She says, “none of the girl teammates I work with took offense.”
