Host of The Alex Jones Show and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones received backlash on Friday after saying he would eat his neighbors. Jones made the comment during his show when he was talking about the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and living under lockdown.
Here is a clip where Jones makes the statement:
I’ll admit it. I will eat my neighbors. I’m not letting my kids die. I’m just going to be honest — my superpower is being honest. I’ve extrapolated this out and I won’t have to for a few years, because I’ve got food and stuff. But I’m literally looking at my neighbors now going, I’m ready to hang them up and gut ’em and skin ’em, chop ’em up. You know what, I’m ready. My daughters aren’t starving to death. I’ll eat my neighbors.
See, my superpower is being honest. I’ll eat your a**. I will. I’m combat model optimal self-sufficiency. Probably the leader. The point is, if you thought about that yet, because I’m somebody that thought I could fix this and I’m starting to think about having to eat my neighbors. You think I like sizing up my neighbor? How I’m going to haul him up by chain and chop his a** up? I’ll do it. My children aren’t going hungry. I will eat your a**. And that’s why I want the globalists to know. I will eat your a** first.
Jones’ Ex-Wife Kelly Jones Responded to His Comments on Twitter
After the clip started trending on Twitter, Jones’ ex-wife Kelly Jones, who Alex Jones has three children with, tweeted:
She wrote: “This is my ex-husband, Alex Jones, graphically describing how he’ll kill his neighbor to f e e d my kids: Homicidal. Terrifying. I lost my kids for tweeting about injustice. This is UNJUST to my kids. This is a mom’s worst nightmare. Court must act.”
The two were married from 2005 to 2015.

They said, “Alex Jones: ‘My super power is being honest. I will eat your a**. 1. Your super power is raging insanity, not honesty. 2. Why not pick a super power like Food Shopper? 3. Why did you start with the a**? So many questions.”
The official Palmer Report twitter posted:
The political blog tweeted: “The media built up Alex Jones as a bogey man so they could milk him for ratings, and look respectable by kicking him around. He went along with it for free exposure. But in the process the media gave an unstable man’s dangerous hallucinations a mainstream platform. Shame on them.”
