    Lolo Jones may have put her foot in her mouth, again.

    According to reports, the U.S. Olympic bobsled team member offended a fan on Twitter by suggesting she perm her natural hair.

    The exchange took place on Twitter after @trackchick13_ posted a picture of her Halloween costume. “Lolo jones 4 Halloween,” she wrote. “I just need a hurdle.”

    “And a relaxer,” Lolo responded. “I haven’t rocked curls since h.s :p”

    Another user, @MsBoss788, chimed in, “@lolojones ma’am you should apologize to @trackchick13_ what you said to her was rude and uncalled for. You need to grow up.”
