So, it seems the Internet is all atwitter over the fact that U.S. track star Lolo Jones responded to a tweet from paralyzed former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand with a tweet of her own that some took as insensitive.
LeGrand, who was paralyzed during a game in 2010, tweeted "Want to race me" to Jones, who finished fourth in the 100-meter hurdles at the London Olympics.
Jones tweeted back: "Get checked for a concussion. clearly u've been hit in the head ... cos u arent beating a track athlete."
And now it seems everyone is upset. How could Jones write something like that to a man in a wheelchair?
Well, calm down, everyone. Stop being offended on the behalf of other people and look at it rationally. Jones had never heard of LeGrand, didn't know he was paralyzed, and was just playfully tweeting back to a guy she thought playfully challenged her to a race.
