Chipper Jones Is “JK” About Taking Gators and Putting Them in Rio Grande to “Stop the Illegals”

UPDATE: Jones apologized last night, although are we wondering if he was “jk” about the apology, too.

Maybe former Atlanta Brave and future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones just got upset that the Braves team he loves so much got schooled yet again by Dodgers sensation Yasiel Puig this Friday night. How else to explain the bizarre “jk” (“just kidding”) tweet Jones’ Twitter profile published yesterday around noon?


The tweet got attention on Twitter, with over 1,600 rewteets and close to 900 profiles gives Jones’ tweet a favorite. (FYI: @braves52 is one of Jones’ former teammates, pitcher Brad Clontz.) It also led to typical Twitter ignorance, with many profiles defending Jones’ comments, as you can see from the following thread:





Dear @itsBigLandino, you’re an idiot. JK. As for Chipper, tweet with caution.

Eventually, looks like Chipper wised up and realized that Puig is the real deal.
