MMA is Horrible: Jon Jones Defends Disgraced Bill Cosby

This week on MMA is Horrible, we have UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones defending Bill Cosby — a man 13 women have accused of rape.

TMZ found Jon Jones in Los Angeles and asked for his thoughts on the matter:

What’d he do? He raped somebody, right? Nah. I don’t think Bill Cosby would do that. I’ve never met him but from what I’ve seen, he seems to be a class act. I kinda grew up admiring him as a black actor and I really hope that’s not true. I mean, he’s Bill Cosby, he shouldn’t have to take it. They should be [does a gesture insinuating women should throw themselves at him].

Umm…yeah. Not exactly the most graceful or appropriate response from Jones. He essentially laughed of Cosby’s allegations because Cosby is famous and “shouldn’t have to take it.” That’s shameful and embarrassing, quite frankly. Not only does it show a misunderstanding of rape (a crime fueled by power, not sex drive), it shows that Jones values Bill Cosby’s word over the word of 13 women just because it’s hard to imagine Cosby doing something like that.

Jones’ faux pas comes at a time when Anthony “Rumble” Johnson literally LOL’d at his own domestic abuse accusations and Conor McGregor called Dennis Siver a Nazi. MMA is horrible sometimes, isn’t it?
