NBA star LeBron James has caught serious heat over the last week, and rightfully so. James made an irresponsible tweet about the Ohio police officer who shot and killed 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant, who was attacking others with a knife.
The body camera footage shows the police officer was a hero, but James didn’t see it that way. His tweet saying “YOU’RE NEXT” with the hashtag “ACCOUNTABILITY” hasn’t sat well with many, including OutKick founder Clay Travis.
Bill O’Reilly, host on The First TV, has also called LeBron out. He took issue with the Los Angeles Lakers superstar convicting the police officer publicly without any understanding of what took place.
“So then, LeBron James gets involved,” O’Reilly said, via Total Pro Sports. “I have no animus towards LeBron James, I don’t know him. He is a tremendous athlete, but there’s something wrong here.”
O’Reilly went a step further in explaining his qualms with LeBron.
“So James, in Los Angeles, convicts the police officer in Ohio without knowing anything,” O’Reilly continued. “What’s wrong with the man? What is wrong with him? No clear-thinking, fair-minded person can respect LeBron James any longer.”
The NBA, including LeBron, continues to take the “go woke, go broke” mentality to a whole new level.
