A Master Lesson in Trolling From Jonathan Dwight Jones

A Master Lesson in Trolling From Jonathan Dwight Jones

It seems like time we all take a lesson in internet trolling by UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones. Jon Jones is a troll. That much we all should agree upon, right? From Direct Messages on Twitter to his public messages and Instagram comments Jon Jones has proven himself adept at the art of trolling the world and his opponents. Sure, sometimes he goes too far and has to claim that his phone was stolen or hacked, but I believe that we’ve all had such lapses in judgement, have we not?

Let us now examine the latest piece by Jonathan Dwight Jones where he sees an illustration on Instagram of Alexander Gustafsson, a Swedish flag and the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship and how he responds.

Note the clear lack of punctuation, also the restraint. Could he have gone into further detail? Of course. Did he? No, instead, he opted for a few quick words. Those words undoubtedly cut like fire through ice on the recently-injured Gustafsson who must now sit back and be cuckolded by Daniel Cormier. [Source: The Power Double on the UG]

Do you guys even know why you dislike Jones?
My opinion is that it might be that he's a confident black man . Why is it that when Cheal Sonnen is disrespectful and acts like a complete idiot ,you Jones haters praise him?Jones is not afraid to fight anyone ,he's just being a smart businessman. If Jones had barely lost against Gustafesso, and then he posted a picture of himself with the belt claiming he is still champ ,would he be your hero or would you dislike him even more?Jones is an awesome fighter and a lot more respectful of his opponents then some mentioned above. I'm not pulling the black racism card,i'm not even black,but it is pretty obvious to me that the anglo fans love their Viking heroes no-matter how stupid some of them behave and show no respect for a black champion. Think about it. Respect the fighter not his race. :-*

OH DEAR GOD WHY??!! Why would you say this? I don't like Jon Jones not because he's a "confident black man" but because he is actually a douche. This isn't some persona he is putting on. He isn't trolling anyone, he isn't acting out the part of the typical heel, he is just a douche plain and simple. The reason why people didn't get mad at Sonnen, wasn't because he was a white guy saying it, it was because of his approach. He truly was just playing the part trying to sell tickets. If Jones was just playing the part of the heel it would be fine, but he is just being himself, and when being yourself shows everyone you're a real douche bag, that isn't a good thing. My dad told me something a long time ago that has always stuck with me. He said, "Son it doesn't matter what color you're, an ass is an ass." And Jon Jones is definitely an ass. His skin color has nothing to do with it.

We know as much about who Cheal Sonnen really is as we do about Jones ,or any other UFC fighter. How do you actually know that Cheal really is not who he is portraying while promoting his fights and Jones is.It's a huge assumption, and the first step to discriminatory behavior? I really have no idea when any of these guys are being themselves or when they are just promoting or pushing peoples buttons to promote an upcoming fight. Why cant you Just say( I'm not sure who Jones really is,but i just don't like him for some reason) I don't dislike Cheal or Gustaffeson , i just look at it as entertainment. I respect anyone who fights in the UFC. My hope is that we get awesome fights as the end result. Think about it,why are you assuming that Cheal is not a douche and Jones is. You don't really know either one of them. In the real world ,we call this discrimination. I don't know you buddy, the truth is i cant be sure if you are a racist,only you really know.

Jones is winning fans now by being a real person, that was funny. Can't stand him before now he is growing on me as he unleashes the troll.

You think what Jones does is trolling? I suppose in a rudimentary, child-like way it is. But anybody who gets caught by it should get social assistance to subsidize their trips on that short bus

That was not an example of trolling,
but it's the media so I'm not surprised..
