LeBron James’ Son Ripped Over Prom Date Being White; RG3 Defends

Videos by OutKick

Former Baylor and NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III played defense for LeBron James’ son, Bronny James, after social media trolls prodded the 17-year-old for going to prom with a white girl.

Photos of Bronny and his date/girlfriend, Peyton Gelfuso, emerged on Wednesday: showing off a lavish photoshoot that attracted plenty of haters.

“LEAVE THESE KIDS ALONE! People clowning Bronny for his prom date are just miserable. Let them enjoy their day,” Griffin said in response to the reactions.

The criticism against James came from all sides as the online nitwits asked why Bronny didn’t opt to take a girl of the same race.

Meanwhile, followers that don’t interpret every online post through the lens of race (tough, right?) gassed up the protégé for the hot Porsche, date and pair of loafers seen pictured.

“It is not anti-black to love someone outside your race,” Griffin previously stated, via TMZ, in response to being in a mixed relationship himself.

In a Twitter Q&A this past week, LeBron, 37, noted that he remains adamant about playing in the NBA alongside his eldest son before calling it a career.

  1. LoL.. A lot to unpack here..

    1) RG3 loves him some white women so of course he’s here to defend Bronny’s honor. Vested interest but it’s all good lol..

    2) “Damn shame. When you go outside of your own it’s like saying you don’t think your mother is beautiful” — uhhh who wants to bang someone who looks like their mother? Weird.

    3) If you’re a grown adult upset about who a teenager is banging you are a certified loser.

    4) To this young lady.. Just know if you’re dating a musician or ball player you’re signing up for 2 things: A Benzo and herpes. The chance he keeps you and doesn’t cheat is like 0.00001%
