Jon Jones, the UFC light heavyweight champion, has social media accounts under @JonnyBones, while Jon Jones, random art outsourcing manager holds the @JonJones account. When the former is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the planet who is currently in the middle of a whole cocaine debacle, it's easy to imagine the constant heat the 'other' Jon Jones has been receiving from all the online mix ups.
The @JonJones account has been on twitter two years earlier than the UFC fighter's, so the mix up has been going on for a while now. As the whole cocaine controversy upped the mix-ups and the vitriol spewed by online trolls, Reebok has apparently sent him a care package for being a good sport about everything:
@jonjones To make up for all of the tweets you've been receiving, we'd like to send you something for being a great sport! DM us your info!— Reebok (@Reebok) January 7, 2015
haha awesome, @Reebok sent me a free t-shirt for being a good sport about the @Jonnybones Twitter mixup! Thanks! :D pic.twitter.com/hjNTYqSZqM— Jon Jones (@jonjones) January 9, 2015
Now, how do they deal with the subsequent mix ups, where people assumed that Reebok just sent the UFC champ even more swag for taking coke? Because apparently that' a real thing. Never change, internet. Never change.
