NBA superstar LeBron James just got what he deserved — millions of fans across the nation are stunned. Some are thinking twice about supporting him.
“LeBron James came under intense fire on Wednesday after he posted a pic of a police officer present at the Ma’Khia Bryant shooting with a caption that read, ‘YOU’RE NEXT,'” reported Breitbart News.
James eventually deleted the tweet, however, the backlash to his aggressive comment was swift. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said that James “is inciting violence against an Ohio police officer.”
But he didn’t just draw criticism from the political world — James riled up other sports stars, too. Former New York Mets player Lenny Dykstra, a World Series winner, didn’t mince words.
“On behalf of pro athletes, current and former, I apologize for how #LeBronJames just showed his inner Maxine Waters and made a very real, ongoing threat to the life of the officer,” said Dykstra.
This isn’t the first time that James has expressed his hatred for the police, and it won’t be the last. Americans should make their voice heard and consider boycotting all NBA games.
