Jack Jones’ ‘Apology’ For Homophobic And Racist Rant Made Things Worse
Earlier today we published a story on Jack Jones, the guy who makes internet ‘prank’ videos.
He was filmed on a night out spouting racist and homophobic abuse at someone, telling them to go back to their own country.
He also called them a f*ggot, before laughing at them for ‘having no money’. Lovely.
You can see the rant in this video by Harry Lee:

Understandably, people were less than happy with his behaviour, with some even calling him to leave social media.
But this is social media ladies and gentlemen, and if there’s one thing social media loves more than puppies and pizza memes, it’s controversy.
And Jack Jones has obliged with this Tweet:
Wow. That’s all he has to say amid accusations of racism and homophobia. No context or apology or at least some sort of explanation for his behaviour?
Of course, his replies were less than favourable:
The fact that this guy is showing no remorse is bad enough, but the fact that he’s goading the people who are criticising him is pretty terrible.
I mean, there’s not really much else to be said here.
