Debate Sensation Kenneth Bone Is Not Who You Think He Is

Oh, Kenneth Bone. Our nation’s love for you felt so real. But now we’re all quickly realizing our fave is problematic because Kenneth Bone said some fucked up shit in Reddit. And we can’t unsee what we hath seen, Kenneth. We simply cannot.

You had a storied reign though! You were touted as the real winner of the debate and people offered you a lot of money to appear on a sex-cam site while wearing that lovely sweater. And then, formerly dear Kenneth, you did a Reddit AMA, but instead of creating a new account, you used the account you already had, which was ultimately your undoing.

For it was then that we could see you’d previously posted comments about Jennifer Lawrence’s hacked nude photos, using the handle stangibson18, and saying you think Lawrence should’ve been more careful with the photos, “but the bad guys are still the ones who sought them out and looked at them. By which I mean guys like me. I saw her butt hole. I liked it.”

Kenneth, why?????? You were a GIF! YOU WERE A GIF! That’s a good life right there! But no, you had to say that it was kind of, sort of Jennifer Lawrence’s fault for leaving them where someone could steal them, and then comment on how much you loved her butthole??? OK, I shouldn’t say you loved it. You only said you liked it. Pardon me.


According to The Daily Beast, Bone also commented in a few NSFW forums, one of which focused on pregnant women in swimsuits, who he called “beautiful human submarines” because yup, that’s the first thing you’d think to call them.

But it gets better/worse because he also admitted to “felony insurance fraud,” after he says he “forged documents to make it look like I had car insurance.” Bone says he did this in MS Paint, of all places, by “scanning an old card and changing the dates 1 pixel at a time.”


I wish that were all he’d said, I really do, but no. He also said “from what I read about the case the shooting of Trayvon Martin was justified.”


Aaaaand, we’re out.

He does call Zimmerman a “shit bird,” but still dude. You have a lot of comments here where you don’t come off sounding like the sweater-wearing cartoon who came into our lives without warning and stole our hearts. Instead, you’re sounding like a guy who took those hearts and smashed them by the side of the road with a rock.
