The 59th annual Grammy awards was filled with celebrities gracing the red carpet, looking flawless, and making open political statements. Of course, this included J. Lo, who quoted a Nobel prize winner as a call to action for celebrities to use their voices during this intense political climate.
But not everyone
praised the proud Latina for her speech — like alt-right radio host Alex Jones.
Jones decided to take a stab at an incredibly popular and loved celebrity, who he claimed not to know while hosting, “The Alex Jones Show.” The Texan targeted J. Lo’s Grammy speech, in which she said:
"I will never forget my first Grammy nomination … or the dress I wore that night. But this night is not about dresses, or even awards; it is about music – the words and the voices. How they move us and inspire us and touch all of our lives. At this particular point in history, our voices are needed more than ever. As Toni Morrison once said, ‘This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self pity, no need for slice, and no room for fear. We do language. That is how civilizations heal.’"
In an almost three-minute rant, Jones labelled J. Lo a corporate person who makes millions but hoards it to herself, like the Clintons and Oprah.
He then went on to say, “only one or two percent [go] to the Africans.” But he didn’t stop there. Jones challenged J. Lo to go to Somalia and experience abuse first-hand:
"Here’s where I bring in people from Somalia where women are sold on slave box. Why don’t you go to Somalia for five minutes, lady? You’ll be gang raped so fast, it’ll make your head spin."
In his show, Jones continuously brought up “mega corporations” that bring celebrities together to “be angry at Trump and his KKK.” But while criticizing J. Lo, Jones took a second to appreciate her legs in her pastel lilac dress with a thigh-high slit.
“I got to tell you, she’s got some nice legs,” he said, before proceeding to call Hollywood celebrities a cult who influence young children at home.
"This is the movement of your life," he said. "Fight the guy trying to restore the country. Fight the global movement for freedom. Fight to bring in Islamists to dominate and run your life."
Jones is best known for his controversial claims, the latest being that there were millions of illegal votes that cost president Donald Trump the popular vote.
His website, Info Wars, has extensively shown its support for Trump with headlines like, “Report: Three million votes in presidential election cast by illegal aliens,” and more recently, “Overwhelming evidence proves Trump right about massive voter/election fraud.” Jones’ website has been called a fake news website.
