Lolo Jones, US olympian who happens to be half black, compared the testimony of Jeantel to Madea Goes to Court. And this apparently has caused a "stir". Maybe a fake one drummed by liberals.
The awkward thing about this was when twitter users mocked Lolo Jones for not winning a medal in the last Olympics, many said it was because the media unfairly criticized black female athletes. TheRoot: One of the more interesting aspects of these "social media" games has been watching how swiftly the couch jockeys have taken to Twitter and Facebook to criticize athletes — particularly black female athletes.
So let me get this straight. She’s black when we make fun of her in a vacuum but she’s white when she does not tow the party line?
From Huffington Post:
The scrutiny and attention paid to Jeantel has not gone unnoticed on Twitter. Struggling Olympian Lolo Jones, known mostly for her off-the-field controversies and athletic inconsistency, brought the wrath of many twitter users when she compared Jeantel to the Tyler Perry character "Madea" tweeting:
Rachel Jeantel looked so irritated during the cross-examination that I burned it on DVD and I’m going to sell it as Madea goes to court.

Twitter users empathizing with the difficulty of Jeantel’s situation quickly set Jones’ mentions ablaze with tweets voicing their displeasure with her untimely, and unsympathetic tweet.
