The Los Angeles Police Protective League has demanded that the National Basketball Association investigate Lebron James over a tweet that Lebron posted targeting the police officer who shot Ma’Khia Bryant.
James posted the picture of the officer with the caption, “YOU’RE NEXT.” While James quickly deleted the tweet following the massive backlash, the officer who had saved a young girl’s life was in danger.
Detective James McBride, a member of the Los Angeles Police Protective League Board of Directors, said, “LeBron James sent that tweet out to over fifty million followers to incite violence is basically what that tweet did. …No officer wants to take a life, but I’ll tell you one thing, that officer saved a life, and he’s a hero.”
Lebron James is in a bad spot, his tweets have gotten him busted by the police unions that are now demanding an investigation. A majority of Americans have also sided with the police against James and his activist cohorts.
While the NBA likely won’t hold James accountable, many Americans have been disgusted by his actions, and his reputation has been permanently tarnished.
Bars have banned the NBA, and even more Americans have stopped watching basketball altogether. The NBA’s refusal to condemn James’s tweets will cost them a fortune, and the damage to their image may be irreparable.
