Her facebook account said this:
48 hours post fight - I have 2 black eyes, otherwise I'm 100% fine. You could have given me an IQ test as I stepped out of the cage, and I'd still have scored higher than Joe Rogan.

Her twitter:
@RosiSexton: You could have given me an IQ test as I walked out of the cage; I'd still have scored higher than @joerogan ;-)

Rogans replies:
@joerogan: "@RosiSexton You could have given me an IQ test as I walked out of the cage; I'd still have scored higher than @joerogan ;-)" I agree :)

@joerogan: @RosiSexton I've got mad respect for you, Rosi. Both for your skills and your heart. My commentary was purely out of concern.

@joerogan: Please, anyone tweeting @RosiSexton negatively re: me, I would appreciate it if you didn't. She was cracking a joke, and she's very cool.



Sounds to me like even Rogan didn't take it as a joke.

Seriously though, it can be difficult to judge when a person is joking through text.

A ";-)" normally means don't take this too seriously

Maybe not on that image, but there is one on the actual twitter post that Rogan made.

I think this is another case of the media bigging up a story. Her Facebook which she doesn't use to interact with fans or her twitter that she uses far more often but yet bloody elbow uses the harsher sounding quote... Why now? All the other media sites use and quote twitter all the time.

You can read into it 2 ways.

Her twitter account used Rogans handle so she wanted Rogan to see what she wrote

1. She did it as a joke, she thought it was funny, wanted Joe to see it. He took it as a joke, they are both now telling us it was a joke. So we as people believe what we are told by the 2 people involved.

2. She said it to cause controversy. She felt she could only do that behind a wink face which is why there wasn't one on Facebook because she didn't want Joe to see that post

Does it always have to be spelt out to folk in the US when someone uses dry humour?

;-) = joke or humourous intent

lol...

If you had actually clicked the link and read the article you would've seen that there is no ";-)" at the end of Rosi Sexton's comment on Facebook. But I guess I need to spell that out for you since you're from Scotland and were probably too busy putting on your skirt to actually read the article.

Two can play that game

I agree. When I read the article I was leaning towards number two, but if Rosi was indeed joking than myself and many others made a simple, honest mistake in assuming she was serious. It's that simple. I'm not sure why this has turned into such a big thing, but like I said, it's very easy to mistake a joke for serious through text (especially when there's no "wink", which there wasn't on Facebook.)

Everyone makes mistakes. Now can we let this die yet or what?

Stop crying like a wee girlie.

There is a school of thought that one may be humourous without the need to display an emoticon. We did kinda invent the language so guess we've had a bit more practise.

I'd imagine if she really did want to insult Joe she would have just been more direct than satirising the situation.
