Olympic medalist Diane Dixon was among the first to point out Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones’ poor timing in light of the shootings in Aurora, Colo., on July 20.

Facing a backlash against her tweet that Americans should look forward to “da Gun shooting competition,” Jones tried to spin the tweet as something positive.
@Allaboutbnme @DianeDixon sorry u guys only think of violence but I think of all the hunting I do w southerners in da south. Its impressive.

Her explanation makes sense to some.
Everyone needs to boycott Yahoo for making such a big deal about the Lolo Jones tweet. There was no harm in what she said.
