Ken Bone's Reddit AMA Went Well— at First
Say it isn't so, Ken Bone.   (Twitter)

Ken Bone, who became a viral sensation thanks to the bright red sweater he wore during Sunday's presidential debate, may now have a face even redder than his zipper-up attire. Chicagoist notes Bone held a Reddit AMA Thursday evening, and by most accounts (as per CNET), Bone was his usual charming self, calling himself "just a normal guy who spends his free time with his hot wife and cat in St. Louis" and chatting about everything from Bill Cosby sweaters to the logistics of how he was picked to participate in the debate. He even received an invite from rapper Snoop Dogg to hang out in LA in Snoop's "doggy den." But after the AMA was over, those who just couldn't get enough decided to mine for more Reddit treasure on Bone, and, as the Daily Beast puts it, his older Reddit threads suggest "he's not nearly as adorable as we thought."

The Daily Beast and Gizmodo document some of the findings, all discovered under the same Reddit handle that Bone didn't change for this AMA (Gizmodo notes Bone himself verified the handle was his in a tweet). Among other things, he once waxed nostalgic about seeing some of Jennifer Lawrence's hacked nude photos: "I saw her butt hole. I liked it," and he is apparently a fan of pregnant women in swimsuits, whom he calls "beautiful human submarines." Bone also wrote that he believed the shooting of Trayvon Martin was "justified" (though he added that he though George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of the fatal shooting, is a "big ole s--t bird").
