Ohio State's Cardale Jones shuts down troll who didn't like his #BlackLivesMatter tweets
Attention college football fans: Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones doesn’t have to tweet only about college football.
Jones, the junior QB who led the Buckeyes to the 2015 National Championship, let his roughly 200,000 followers know Thursday that #BlackLivesMatter.
Jones also questioned why some feel the need to respond to #BlackLivesMatter with #AllLivesMatter. Jones wondered why so many of the victims of mysterious deaths and fatal encounters with police “happen” to be black.
And what does “All Lives Matter” even mean? One fan didn’t appreciate Jones venturing into “bullsh*t.” Read their exchange below:
The poor sacrificial soul, Dan Gustafson, appears to have changed his Twitter handle. But he’s since apologized for his “poor wording.”
Cardale Jones had opinion on race issues. But people only want to hear about his experience as an athlete, not his experience as a black man
