Chipper Jones is an eight-time National League All-Star, and he’s quickly becoming a Twitter All-Star as well. Since joining the Twittersphere earlier this year, Jones has been a little wacky in his tweets, often catching his followers by surprise with his zany antics. Whether it’s speaking some weird slang language he seems to have developed on his own or tweeting out a photo of a nasty bruise, you simply never know what’s going to go from Chipper’s brain to his fingertips and eventually out to the world. Jones seemed to get a little bit more serious than usual on Wednesday night, though, when he took a stance on the always controversial John F. Kennedy assassination. The former Braves third baseman was apparently watching the movie JFK, and he isn’t too pleased with the way things are portrayed, which resulted in quite the Twitter rant. Check out Jones’ series of tweets below. What a crock of crap! Oswald killed Kennedy? Seriously? Sorry, but I’m watching JFK. It’s almost laughable what they want us to believe. — Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) November 15, 2012 Anyone who has ever fired a rifle and watched the Zapruder film, will tell you the fatal headshot came from the grassy knoll. C’mon people!! — Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) November 15, 2012 JFK is on REELZ. Zapruder footage is coming on soon. Check it out. Oswald is behind JFK and to the right. No way he fired the kill shot. — Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) November 15, 2012 Read the Warren Commission Report. I have. It’s a crock. No way Kennedy’s head moves back and to the left, if shot from the back. — Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) November 15, 2012
