Lolo Jones upsets bobsledders with video mocking her paycheck

LINK

quote:

The American track and field star on Monday rankled members of the U.S. bobsledding team -- which she has been working with the past seven months -- when she tweeted a Vine video poking fun at her bobsledding paycheck, which came out to $741.84 for her training thus far.

"Seven months with bobsled season. The whole season. That's it," she says in the video before adding, "I'm going to be a little late on my rent this month."

Jones, who has numerous endorsements from her track and field career, joined U.S. bobsledding in an attempt to win an Olympic medal that eluded her over the past two summer games.

Among those miffed by Jones' action was gold medalist Steven Holcomb, the most accomplished American bobsledder in history.

"It wasn't taken very well," Holcomb told USA Today of Jones' video. "People were really kind of insulted. You just made $741, more than most athletes in the sport. So what are you complaining about?"

I think Jones explain pretty well, I have no idea why this Holcomb cat would be mad at Jones when she is bring light to the difference in money support between bobsledding and track or other sports.

When you are famous, people cling to every word and just wait to pounce

People are too fricking sensitive. I swear people wake in the morning thinking about ways to be offended today.

She will bring bobsledding more recognition and that will directly result in higher paychecks for these people. She's going to be great for their notoriety.

Hell, I didn't know Holcomb's name until this incident

Cause she uses twitter and gets paid for endorsements? Or because people, you included, care what she says. You do care because you posted. ESPN is trying hard to make her polarizing. Too late, unless she gets into broadcasting or something, she is about done. Oh and yes she fine as hell!

The only time that I see her tired act is on here. I only watch games on ESPN, so I have no idea about what ESPN is trying to do in order to make her polarizing.

I live in Atlanta, so I see hundreds of fine as hell women every day.

And none of what you said changes the fact that she's both an attention whore and an idiot.

I'm not the biggest Lolo fan, but she wasn't mocking them at all.

If anything, she is saying they deserve more for what they do

LoLo is basically indirectly speaking up for the idiots by making fun of the amount of the paycheck. Hoping that the US athletic committee would be too embarassed and up the pay for the athletes. Instead she gets slammed for it by an idiot who wants to play Mr Patriot, figures.
