What I did laugh at, was your claim, Jones took the offensive tweet down without any knowledge of DC's father. To think Jones took down some tweet as a part of his 'running joke' is very unlikely. My assumption is, someone on Jones team seen the new spin this comment was taking, warned Jones who then deleted the comment.
Why would anyone care if Jones deleted the tweet if this whole thing about DC's dad didnt arise? The only tweets/videos/twats Jones has ever deleted and gotten a response out of was ones making controversial claims.
