Lawrence Billy Jones III (born December 10, 1992) is an American conservative political commentator, Fox News contributor, talk radio host, and author. He came to prominence in 2015 for raising money for a pizza shop that refused to cater a gay wedding.[2]

Early life

Jones was raised by his mother, Tameria and father, Lawrence Jones II. Jones has stated that he served as "youth mayor" of Garland, Texas in 2009.[3] He graduated from Garland High School in 2011.[4] Thereafter, Jones studied political science and criminal justice at the University of North Texas.[1]

Career

Jones was hired as student advocate in the Garland Independent School District, becoming their youngest employee.[4][5] When he was 19, he ran for a seat on the school board for this district, but lost the election.[3] He served two years as a board member for Dallas County Child Welfare.[6][7] In 2016, Jones was on the Garland Parks and Recreation Board.[8]

In 2013, he was named Activist of the Year by FreedomWorks.[6] That year, he was asked by Project Veritas, a conservative organization founded by James O'Keefe which is known for publishing secretly-recorded videos, for the purpose of exposing allegations of fraud among vendors who enrolled individuals in the healthcare marketplace of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.[3]

In April 2015, Jones created a fundraiser for Memories Pizza, a pizza shop in Indiana that closed after receiving backlash when its owners said they would refuse to cater a gay wedding if asked. The fundraiser raised $844,000 for the family, and which was used in part for bills and partly donated to charity and the owner's church.[9][10]

He hosts The Lawrence Jones Show on TheBlaze Radio Network.[11] He was previously a contributor to conservative television show Dana, hosted by Dana Loesch on Blaze Media.[12][2]

In February 2018, Jones became editor-in-chief of the conservative website Campus Reform.[13][14]

In October 2019, Jones relocated to New York City after it was announced that he had been promoted to a regular substitute host and co-host role at Fox News.[15]

Controversies

In April 2019, Jones wore a small bulletproof vest during a Fox News segment where he was at the U.S.-Mexico border in Laredo, Texas. He was subsequently mocked online, and a number of journalists who routinely cover the border region said they have never used protective gear in the course of the reporting. In his next appearance on Fox News, Jones wore a larger vest and said that the U.S. Border Patrol had told him to wear a bulletproof vest for his safety.[16][17][18]

In May 2018, he claimed on Fox News that, because ESPN personality Jemele Hill was unemployed, she therefore did not deserve a journalism award from the National Association of Black Journalists, and that the NABJ was seeking to "applaud unemployment."[14]

In July 2019, Jones blamed the Barack Obama Administration for a lenient plea deal that sex offender and accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein received in 2008, falsely claiming that Obama was president at the time.[19]
