Backlash Against Lebron James For Tweet Threatening Cops

Backlash Against Lebron James For Tweet Threatening Cops

April 23, 2021

Basketball multi-millionaire and social justice blowhard LeBron James incurred a deluge of Twitter mockery after posting a now-deleted tweet calling for “accountability” for a police officer who saved at least one black teen from a stabbing spree yesterday in Columbus, Ohio.

LeBron essentially doxxed the life-saving cop, who shot a knife-wielding black teenage girl a split-second away from killing another girl, by posting a photo of the officer with an all-caps message: “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” He was referring to the guilty verdict recently handed down to former officer Derek Chauvin in the wildly controversial George Floyd murder trial.

“I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate,” said James in a follow-up. “This isn’t about one officer.  it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY.”

The one creating the hate in the first place was LeBron, but he won’t hold himself accountable for that. Others did, however; his Twitter account was deluged with tweets slamming him for rushing to judgment and threatening the Columbus officer.

A tweet from the Arizona GOP, for example, noted: “He’s worth in excess of $500 MILLION courtesy of our economic system, our so-called ‘racist’ society, and some talent playing a GAME. Yet LeBron James, is free to THREATEN an officer of the law. He should be arrested, not excused.”
