Jack Jones is certainly someone who divides opinion and isn’t the most loved person on the internet.
And it has recently come to light that his obnoxious antics have been taken to new heights.
In a video which surfaced online, we can see Jack shouting racist and homophobic slurs at an unknown man on a night out.
Check out the video below:

In the video, Jack says:
Go back to your own country. You faggot, I will knock the fuck out of you. You have no money.
Now this shouldn’t have to be explained but obviously no matter how rich or ‘famous’ you are, it’s never okay to be so disrespectful and insulting to another human being.
Using racist and homophobic slurs in pretty much the same sentence, and then jeering that the person has no money, really says more about Jack than it does about anybody else in the video.
This isn’t the first time the internet ‘star’ has caused serious controversy, after allegations that his videos are faked. Allegedly the people in his ‘reaction’ videos have been revealed to be paid actors.
On the other hand, we’ve also all seen the videos of him getting punched, which it seems pretty certain are not fake…
But in the above video, Facebook comedian Harry Lee even claims that Jones attempted to get on the tube before other passengers during the London attacks because he was more important.
It’s unclear whether that’s true or not, but the clarity of the video means it’s obviously Jack saying those horrible things.
There really is no excuse for the way he’s behaved, fame does not excuse you from being racist or homophobic.
We have reached out to Jack Jones’ representatives for comment.
