NBA star LeBron James stopped rooting for his favorite team, the Dallas Cowboys, because of owner Jerry Jones’ stance against players kneeling to protest the national anthem. But the self-proclaimed “woke” blowhard has no problem rooting for pro footballer Deshaun Watson, who has been accused of sexually assaulting or harassing two dozen women.
On Sunday, James sent a congratulatory tweet to Cleveland Browns QB Watson for a victory over the Washington Commanders.
Yessir D Watson!! Another one. That boy getting his rhythm back! #Browns

Fans promptly took James to task on social media for his incredibly tone-deaf post.
You stopped being a cowboys fan because of Jerry Jones but you are now actively rooting for Deshaun Watson!?

My son is a huge fan of you.. he no longer will be supporting you after this tweet. Supporting Watson is no message you should be sending to the young kids out there. What’s next you will tweet about R Kelly?
