Friend of Trayvon Martin, Rachel Jeantel, sat down for a very candid interview with TheGrio's Joy-Ann Reid. During the interview, Jeantel addressed the criticism she received on social media specifically that from Olympic sprinter Lolo Jones.
Here is what Jones said about Rachel on Twitter:
Rachel Jeantel looked so irritated during the cross-examination that I burned it on DVD and I'm going to sell it as Madea goes to court.—

Here is Jeantel's response to Jones:
On Tuesday, Jeantel responded to Jones, saying she takes any comparison to Tyler Perry’s character as a compliment, and calling Jones “a joke to me, and a hater.”Now that's how you respond to a person that has nothing but negative things to say about you. Don't let it affect you. Just call that person a hater and keep it moving like Rachel.
