Hollywood beauty January Jones gets ugly comment

Hollywood beauty January Jones gets ugly comment

 Everybody’s a critic. At least they are online. Rarely, though, do you see an influential writer/producer like Damon Lindelof (Lost) use social media as a platform to tee off on someone else in the Hollywood community. Whatever happened to professional courtesy?

In this case the victim was January Jones of Mad Men. She’s currently on screen in X-Men: First Class, the reigning box office champ. The beautiful blonde, dressed in a period miniskirt, plays the powerful but evil mutant Emma Frost (see her in trailer, below).

After seeing the film over the weekend, Lindelhof gratuitously slammed Jones’s performance on his Twitter page (@damonlindelof). Here’s the entry in its entirety:

"Emma Frost's THREE mutant powers: Telepathy, Transformation to Solid Diamond and last but not least, Sucking at Acting”

This afternoon a chastened Lindelof, one of the writers and producers of next month’s Cowboys & Aliens, had this to tweet:

“I need to stop saying mean things on Twitter. #MORNING AFTER.

Just wondering, Damon, apart from January’s performance, how’d you like the film?
