JAMES CAVES: LeBron Admits He ‘Fueled the Wrong Conversation’ After Infamous Tweet

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.05.21

NBA legend LeBron James admitted he “fueled the wrong conversation” this week after tweeting -then deleting- a Tweet apparently threatening a police officer who shot a knife-carrying teen as she tried to stab another girl.

“I fueled the wrong conversation about Ma’Khia Bryant and I owe it to her and this movement to change it. Thank you @fabiolacineas for educating us about Ma’Khia and her story and why this needs to be about her,” posted James on Twitter.

Original Story: April 25, 2021

Former President Donald Trump ripped NBA superstar LeBron James in an official statement Friday; accusing the basketball legend of launching into “racist rants” following the police-shooting in Columbus, Ohio.

“LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA, which has just recorded the lowest television RATINGS, by far, in the long and distinguished history of the League,” read the statement.

“His RACIST rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning,” Trump added. “He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our Country together!”

 

LeBron James reacted to a growing backlash on social media this week after tweeting, then deleting, a message to a Columbus cop involved in a police shooting; saying he was “damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police.”

“ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!” posted the NBA star.

“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -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,” he added.

NBA legend LeBron James issued a public statement to the Columbus, Ohio police officer who shot a teenager Tuesday night after she allegedly attacked another minor with a knife; telling the cop “You’re Next.”

 

James deleted the message after users on social media complained about the veiled threat.

“Ma’Khia Bryant, a young Black girl, was shot and killed by a Columbus police officer Tuesday afternoon while yielding a knife and attempting to stab another female, and her death has since sparked national outrage,” reports WKYC.

“The Akron native and current Los Angeles Laker has since received nearly 5,000 replies to his tweet, many arguing about whether or not the shooting of Bryant was justified,” adds the news outlet.
