Yesterday, it was announced that hip-hop artist Drake, also a huge sports fan, will be hosting this year’s ESPYs. While reaction among the sports community has been mixed, we know that at least one famous athlete is having a little bit of fun with the news. Lolo Jones, former Olympic hurdler and bobsledder, poked fun at both Drake and his girlfriend, Rihanna, who has dated a few athletes in her day.
It’s amazing that Drake is hosting the @Espys but it’s gonna be tough for him to hand out all those awards to Rihanna’s ex boyfriends

While we admittedly don’t really follow Rihanna’s love life, we do know that she’s been linked to Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp and New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith in the past. Luckily, neither are favored to win any awards at the show.
As for why Jones is making jokes at Drake’s expense, we’re not really sure. She may just be trying to be funny, but in the process, she has greatly angered a heck of a lock of Rihanna fans – just read the responses.
