Ken Bone linked to disturbing old comments on Reddit

From NBCChicago: Kenneth Bone, who became an instant meme after Sunday's second presidential debate, is backing the Chicago Cubs in the postseason, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

He wrote: "From what I read about the case the shooting of Trayvon Martin was justified, but from what I've learned of (George) Zimmerman through statements, in interview, and behaviour he is a big ole s-- bird".

He also called the killing of Trayvon Martin "justified". Bad to the Bone, or is this just the next phase in his rise to fame? In a stranger than fiction election year, Ken Bone isn't just the star of the debate anymore - he's coming into his own as the latest viral sensation in more ways than one.

He appeared on national news segments, grew his Twitter presence to 239,000 followers (from less than 20) and even worked out a promotional deal with Uber.

But after he took part in a Reddit Ask Me Anything on Thursday evening, users on the site uncovered his past comment history by searching his username StanGibson18.


He also gave his thoughts on the 2014 leak of Jennifer Lawrence's nude photos, declaring that "I saw her butthole". He's now slated to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! after the next debate. By which I mean guys like me. "Your value has not changed due his words, or any assault you have endured".

It's not yet clear if Bone's apparent Reddit past will end his 5 days of internet fame.

"Gizmodo is not a fan of Ken Bone", he said.

At least Bone managed to brush off the porn comments as only he can.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! did not immediately respond to request for comment.
