Woke NBA star Lebron James has come under fire from a black leadership group for wearing the logo of an online seller of Confederate merchandise, Breitbart reported.
Project 21 called James a “hypocrite” for wearing the logo of Wish, a retailer through which third parties sell “a wide array of Confederate-themed items including Confederate flag pillows, blankets, kids’ military uniforms, portraits of Confederate generals and even anti-COVID face masks featuring the rebel flag,” the group said.
“Despite cultivating the reputation of a social justice warrior, basketball star LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers teammates have hit the court with the logo of online retailer Wish on their uniforms since 2017,” a press conference by the group read, and called the actions “political inconsistency.”
“We Wish LeBron Was Consistent,” the group’s website read.
They accused James of being happy with the endorsement money and not caring about what Wish sells. They also said that James’ activism “almost single-handedly tanked NBA ratings over the past two years.”
