I am not Lazy Johnny Jackson

Twisted Rodeo - Sun, 08/24/2014 - 10:47

Over the last couple of days, I’ve had two dear friends contact me about Lazy Johnny Jackson, a character on Facebook.

To set the record straight, I am not Lazy Johnny Jackson, though I do follow his posts.

For those not in the know, LJJ likes to stir the pot. In fact, he follows professional rodeo closely and posts about topics that will get folks thinking. Whoever the person is behind Lazy Johnny Jackson, he/she is very well written and has a sharp wit.

That wit is a little biting, especially if you don’t agree with LJJ’s comments. There have been exchanges and barbs shared with some of the greatest players in the sport.

The message I received this morning pushed me to write this. In the note, my friend spelled out the name of one accuser that is contacting many in rodeo, telling them that I am Lazy Johnny Jackson and that I’m purposefully stirring “crap” on Facebook.

It’s not me. While oftentimes I find LJJ’s posts and comments humorous, I’m not the kind of person to make comments under an assumed name. I also don’t possess LJJ’s quick wit. Since I first found LJJ on Facebook, I have, too, wondered his true identity.

But it’s my business to promote the sport of rodeo, its events and its people. It’s my passion, and it’s something I’m truly blessed to do. To accuse me of anything but that – in an effort to discredit my name and my credibility – is something I will fight against.

It’s much too important to me.
