LeBron Refuses to Comment on Police Shooting Reward Challenge

Following the horrific incident in Compton, Los Angeles, Sheriff Alex Villanueva publicly challenged social justice warrior LeBron James to match the reward money for information leading to an arrest in the case. The county put up $100,000 while private citizens have offered $75,000. LeBron has been dribbling and not commenting.

Finally, he was asked about the challenge but embarrassingly refused to comment.

"I have zero comment on the sheriff," LeBron responded.

Well. No wiggle room there.

It is no surprise to see LeBron running from the question. After all, he's quite busy these days having a foundation aggressively texting random Florida residents trying to reach convicted felons. LeBron is looking around to pay fines so felons can vote (for Joe Biden) in the upcoming presidential election.

The urgent stuff first, right, LeBron?

LeBron, who is worth about a half-billion, is an activist when he sees fit. His brand-building methods include misleading millions of basketball fans on racial issues and silencing those who oppose the Chinese Communist Party. Oh, and wearing Colin Kaepernick gear in the locker room. Apparently, sticking up for the lives of police doesn't lead to more shoe sales.

Unlike LeBron James, Outkick is kicking in $10,000 toward the cause.

"Outkick is pledging $10k to add to the reward for the capture of the shooter of the two LA police officers," Clay Travis tweets. "We challenge other athletes, coaches, leagues & sports media organizations to match or exceed our pledge."
