Reacting to the breakdown video indirectly on his official social media this Thursday evening, Jones described the creator as a “loser” and questioned how the world evolved to a place where “people can just say anything they want”.

“Crazy that we live in a world where influencers can persuade the minds of the boys on the internet,” Jon Jones posted on his official X account. “Literally some random loser with a microphone in his basement. People can just say anything they want these days, I find it fascinating.”

“Bro, what a position to be in, someone mentions your name and maybe make a few more hundred or even thousand dollars for themselves dude,” Jon Jones posted in defense after a user on X claimed the content creator would likely double-down with his own response to Jones’ posts. “I’m blessed due. All good things.”
