The Delphi Township bar in Cincinnati says it will not show NBA games again until LeBron James is removed from the league. Now its owner is claiming business is better than ever because of course.
Business Is Reportedly Booming For The Bar That Banned NBA Games Because Of LeBron James https://t.co/GUPYo4kczq— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) May 2, 2021
Apparently negative Yelp reviews came in for Delphi Township in bunches, but why should that surprise us? While liberals whined about the banning live on the internet, conservative Twitter took action.
Breaking news: internet opinions cannot compete with real life action.
Ohio bar that banned NBA games from being shown until LeBron is "expelled" from the league gets flooded with one-star reviews on Yelphttps://t.co/eUaeIZwUQ9— BroBible (@BroBible) April 25, 2021
The ban started after LeBron posted a picture of the police officer who shot Ma’Khia Bryant before she could stab a young woman. James left the caption “you’re next,” and that pissed off just about everyone.
The bar’s owner, Jay Linneman, told Cincinnati.com about his hopes following James’ internet debacle:
“I hope people channel the support to law enforcement and not necessarily to Linnie’s Pub,” he said.
Linnie’s Pub wins the day
Aww Damn! I was headed there to watch our game tonight and have a drink! Welp. 🥴 https://t.co/RRfRksjckM— LeBron James (@KingJames) April 24, 2021
LeBron’s reply was intended to throw his internet wrath to Linnie’s doorstep, but it didn’t work. Sometimes the little guy wins, and that should encourage us all to stand up to the rich and powerful. If you weren’t having a good day, we hope this story helps.
