Rashad Evans Calls Jon Jones a ‘Fake A– White Boy’, Controversy Ensues

Ugh, the Rashad Evans-Jon Jones feud has turned racial. Or at least that’s how it’s being perceived after Cage Potato got a screen shot of Jones’ phone with a text from Rashad that reads, “Get off my phone fake ass white boy!!”

When Jones first mentioned the text on Twitter (before the pic surfaced), Rashad denied that he ever sent Jones a racial message, but now that the evidence has hit the internet, Evans fessed up to sending the text on MMA Weekly Radio.

“Yeah, I did say it to him, but he also said a lot of things to me… We were arguing, we said a lot of things heated back and forth, but I did call him a ‘fake ass white boy.’ But I don’t think being a white boy is anything bad… It’s an insult to him of course because he’s not white… It’s not anything against white people. It’s an insult, he’s black and I called him white… It showed that it made him mad because he posted it on the internet.

First of all, what kind of move was that anyways? That’s like high school. Not like high school, that’s like grade school. ‘Look at what Rashad said to me. Look everyone! Look! Look! Can you believe he said this to me?’ Seriously, what am I gonna do? Tell my mom because Jon Jones said he would destroy me and said a bunch of mean things to me? What’s the mindset here?

If I offended anyone by calling Jon Jones a ‘fake ass white boy,’ I deeply do apologize. I don’t have a problem with white people. Some of my best friends are white. There’s no problem against white people. It’s just the simple fact that it was an insult and I called him white, because as a black person to be called something that you’re not is very offensive.”

Of course, this has blown up into something much bigger than it really is. A star athlete makes a racial or homophobic remark and the next thing you know it’s front page news. I understand why, but at least in this case, is it really that big of a deal? I mean how many white people were actually offended by what Rashad said? I’m white and I’m not offended in the slightest.

    this seems to be a little weak and kind of a bitch move on jones’s part,im sure he’s talked some serious shit to rashad behind closed doors,but like rashad said theres no need to act childish and tattle in a way, but like everything if you use terms like that someone will blow it out of propotion,if it hasnt happened yet it probably will,rashad should just quit while he’s ahead in trying to explain this and watch what else he says

  • justin cole

    thats not funny im offended that to me is like me telling him to go back to africa black boy 

  • sandman

     Evans is a punk; always has been. He always seems to stay in the spotlight by trying to get into arguments with the guys he is gonna fight. The comment was uncalled for, but who knows what else was said. If a white guys calls another white a black boy, would blacks get offended??? 

  • Ed Lib

    What’s wrong with going back to Africa?
     

  • sam_snee

    im not offended, but that doesnt mean its not offensive. calling someone a white boy who isnt white kind of lacks a derogatory definition. What does it mean? whatever it means, because it wasnt a compliment, that makes it an insult. And if Jones took offence to it, then that proves there was a negative angle on the comment. its bizarre for sure

  • sam_snee

    i didnt like jones before because of his ego, now rashad is being an ass. these two guys can just go fly a kite.

  • Smh

    haha all u white people above still dont get what rashaad evans is talking about even in plain sight just like the greatest writer ever farhan who talked about fame and illuminati said. i know what rashaad is talking about, i guess thts becus im black i guess.

    • sam_snee

      in plain sight? well, care to elaborate for us white folk.

    • http://www.mmaconvert.com Steve Barry

      I get that it’s insulting to Jones. I’m just saying as a white person it’s not insulting to me.

  • Smh

    he basically saying he looks down on black people calls are homes ghetto which he clearly says on his post fight interview after the shogun fight, thinks all black people thts not gay or some weirdo calls volence, so he called him a white boy because thts who he wants to be he talks like them, acts all wierd like when the cameras are on him, knows nothing about the as he calls it ghetto, never step foot there, tells on people thts has nothing to do with him, goes out with white girls instead of blacks probily because he thinks all black women cheat and are strippers and hookers, and how he acts he probily has no black friends  does tht clear anything. rashaad is basically saying is he  looks down on black people which every other race does as well, so he called him a white boy    

  • Smh

    and i luv white people im not races i think each race is equal im not being races at all just tryna get a good saying on what i think rashaad is really tryna say, just not saying it becus its already bout to probily be on mma live and espn and make headlines and all tht stupid stuff story tellers are going to create 

    • sam_snee

      thanks man. yeah, i dont think theres any room for prejudice of any kind in mma. when someone starts up something racial, its best to ignore it, because getting involved just means you have something to say about it, and i guess i dont. just fight?

    • Lanfear

      I think reading your post just dropped my IQ by 10. It would almost make me racist if white people wern’t just as stupid.

  • Steve_vacev

     Idk, what ppl say, that’s absolutely racist! Every1 knows how touchy black ppl are… and Rashad writing this is straight up racist.. I guess Rashad has something against white ppl, cause he threw some racist jokes at Rampage as well… Unbelievable … And Rashad wonders why fans don’t like him… well here’s his answer.

    • Changi

      unbelieveable aint it.. ofcourse its racist,no denying rashad’s got some issues….maybee they want rashad and jones to keep going at each other… i mean with velasquez, brock aldo etc out… this is the only thing keeping ppl hooked right now…. we all knw ufc 130 aint got much title implications anyways..

    • Lanfear

      Saying black people are touchy is racist you dipshit. God, the booing at UFC events is explained so easily when you look at the MMA forums.

    • sam_snee

      i really enjoy your stupidity in saying that Rashad is racist and follow it by saying “everyone knows how touchy black people are.” Congrats, you are now ignorant and racist.

      • Steve_vacev

         U are both stupid as hell….. OFC, cause if u say something like to a white person: “U are a fake black boy”…. in America it would mean a freaking war… I’m just explaining my argument…… U are both pretty dumb./..

      • Steve_vacev

        Just to clear the air, I spent a lots of time in ATL, I listen to rap for the most part… I can’t believe u actually made this comment…. Seriously.. 

        • Lanfear

          I’m just going to assume this is a joke and forget about it. It hurts my brain too much otherwise. One thing though…what is with your posts? Why are they so hard to understand? Between the spelling mistakes, poor grammer and general disarray of ideas it makes for some horrid reading. Jim Genia should really be on your case about this, what with the way he busts my balls, and I spell words the right way! 

          • Smh

            lanfear yur a cornball lol steve should block yur racist ass

  • hangtown

    i think  rashads cool but it was a dumb remark, i refuse to demand action like most black people would over something silly, dont want reperations, dont want a history month in our name, dont want all white colleges or scholarships. dont want meet white people online, dont want any special treatmen,

    • Steve_vacev

       Exactly what I meant, sadly from time to time I can’t write my thoughts the way I want to cause of the fact that I’m not American and English is my 2nd language and I usually  don’t read what I wrote(before posting), so there are misspelled words and  “poor”grammar as well. .. ..

    • http://www.facebook.com/TheWorldsWorstGigolo Jermaine Jones

      Reparations for what mistreatment, was your race ever not in the history books, did the national guard have to walk your grandparents to school, where your ancestors taught to hate themselves? I don’t KNOW any black people that want reparations look what it done to the Native Americans. Even the Japanese that where detained for a couple of years during WWII got reparations something is wrong with that. You are an idiot.

  • Mit689

    who cares everyone needs to mind their own business.  If anyone deserves to be offended its Jon Jones. thats it.  

    • Lanfear

      Mind their own business? Jones posted it for all to see. If anything he is encouraging us to comment on it.

  • The_heat_

    JONES IS A STUCK UP WHITE BOY. HE IS FAKE, AS YOU NOTICE WHEN HE’S ON CAMERA HOW AWKWARD HE IS. THAT’S BECAUSE HE’S PUTTING ON AN ACT. RASHAD WASN’T BEING RACIST. BASICALLY SAYING JONES ISN’T “SHOWING HIS TRUE COLOR”. YOU HONESTLY THINK RASHAD IS RACIST WORKING WITH AND TRAINING WITH “WHITES”? JONES IS ALSO A “RAT” A “TATTLETALE” HE COULD BE FIGHTING IN A COUPL MONTHS BUT HE’S JUST RELAXING ENJOYING HIS TIM AS CHAMP. I HOPE IT ENDS SOON. I LIKED JONES BEFORE HE TURNED CHAMP. NOW YOU SEE THE SNAKE HE IS. ONCE AGAIN THE PEOPLE WHO SEE THIS IS RACIST ARE PROBABLY SOMEWHAT A BIT RACIST. JONES IS KAE AND “ISNT SHOWING HIS TRUE COLOR” CAUSE IN THE MEDIA HE TRIED TO PORTRAY HIMESELF AS HUMBLE BUT THEN HE PULLS RASHAD TO THE SIDE AND SAYS SOME TRASH OF HIS OWN.  

    • Smh

      agreed the clowns above tht comment saying rashaad is racist is probily racist them selfs and hates black people. becuse why would yall get mad if rashaad a black person is talking about jones another black person, it doesnt make any sense

      • sandman

        Because you are calling him “white”, like that’s a bad thing! Think about that for a second. What is wrong with being white??? Shouldn’t be a problem being any color. The first person to recognize a color difference and remark on it is basically the racist…

  • http://www.facebook.com/TheWorldsWorstGigolo Jermaine Jones

    When did white people start pulling the race card so much? The only victim in this situation is Jon Jones. When you start being racist towards Evans, Jones becomes a double victim. Whenever a black man talk proper he will be called names like that. If a white guy from the ghetto talks with ebonics because he was raised that way he has to endure racist comments from both sides. Also, how can a black American go BACK somewhere they have never been to. You idiots stop hiding and show your freckled pimpled faces.

  • Brendan

    I’m offended that so many people, particularly the reporters covering this story, have been so quick to say that white mma fans shouldn’t be offended.

  • Fuckyourhate

    Jon jones is a fake ass white boy, i cant stand his uncle tom ass ways, i bet him and tiger are best friends. Hes a fake as white boy because of the things he says and does. I expect for a white guy to snitch on me, to act as if hes a hero cause he told on me but when your black and act that way, plus your married to a white woman, hell yeah hes a fake as white boy
