UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is claiming his phone was hacked and thus is not responsible for multiple homophobic posts carried out through Instagram.

That's what I said. Especially since this wouldn't be the first time Jones exchanged insults with one of his followers.

Seems weird that Jones would do that and the "selfie" thing means nothing. could have just been a picture on his phone that the guy posted.

"Bloody Elbow contacted Kawa at approximately 8:30 PM ET to inform him of these Instagram postings and to give him time to speak with Jones over this very serious matter."

Is this really a serious matter? now if it was on Facebook, that would be some important stuff.

It seems pretty tough to *like* Jones, but it's pretty sad how much of a magnifying glass they have him under.

When did MMA become so sensitive? I've seen Dana curse out tons of fans on Twitter. Stop the bullshit already lol

He has a well documented history of putting his foot in his mouth and just in general having a majorly douchey arrogant attitude. He is often referencing his religion which many use as a foundation for bigotry. He's shown before that he lacks the maturity to rise above people trolling him or even disagreeing with him on twitter or anywhere really. Wouldn't surprise me at all if he tweeted this stuff driving himself home the bar. We'll never know but not being accountable for it and blaming it on theft is right up Jones alley imo.

lol this whole situation is ridiculous.

Someone explain to me what would motivate Jones to go on Instagram and posts those comments about some random kid, especially when he knows what it would do to his career.

He has absolutely no reason to go on there and post that stuff. It's hilarious to me that people actually believe he would've done that. The man may be immature at times, but he isn't stupid.

The hate he receives is just laughable. You've gotta be pretty gullible to believe any of this shit.

Clearly, this is another case in Jones being Not Quite Human.
