Olympic athlete Lolo Jones just can’t seem to stay away from drama, especially when it concerns her social media accounts. Known for her many politically incorrect tweets, she just added another notch to her self-hating belt.
The runner (who should have been honored that someone decided to go as her for Halloween 2013), decided it was a good idea to diss her fan’s costume. The tweeter, wrote: “Lolo jones 4 Halloween. I just need a hurdle” and Lolo replied, “And a relaxer. I haven’t rocked curls since h.s.” Ouch!

VH1′s original movie, ‘CRAZY SEXY COOL: THE TLC STORY’ not only broke records for the network when it premiered last week, but it caused a firestorm of sorts for many of the people portrayed on screen.
Without a doubt, the one person who was at the brunt of widespread ridicule was one of the key figures behind the record selling girl group, former singer turned executive Perri “Pebbles” Reid.
Using social media, the 46 year-old discounted her portrayal in the film and tweeted on many different instances that the movie contained “lies” and that she couldn’t believe what Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas were saying about her during their promo press run.
Welp! After days of radio silence, Pebbles has officially spoken out with a statement she tweeted out to 50,000+ followers. Read it in full below:
First I want to thank all of you for the well wishes and prayers. I apologize for the delay in responding to the movie, but I wanted to gather my thoughts. I have always been a private person and this unprovoked attack has been extremely upsetting to me and my family. I have needed time to spend with my family and for personal reflection.
