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:
To all my haters … I love you ❤️

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:
I think most people probably hate racism and homophobic language to be honest with you.

What about the haters that aren't from this country, Jack? Do you love them too or should they go home?

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.
