American sprinter Lolo Jones has been wont to stir the proverbial pot in recent weeks.
Jones rankled U.S. bobsledders earlier this month after publishing a Vine video disparaging her payment for seven months of service to the team, and on Thursday she tweeted a barb at a witness in the George Zimmerman murder trial.
Rachel Jeantel looked so irritated during the cross-examination that I burned it on DVD and I'm going to sell it as Madea goes to court.— Lolo Jones (@lolojones) June 27, 2013
Jeantel, a friend of the late Trayvon Martin, spent two days on the stand giving her testimony of the final moments of Martin's life.
At the very least, the tweet was ill-timed -- especially given the highly-sensitive nature of the trial.
Surprisingly, almost a full day later, the tweet remains.
