LeBron James’ Controversial Outlook on COVID-19 Vaccine

You won’t see LeBron James speak about COVID-19 vaccine in the near future. Simple as that. Coronavirus vaccines are distributed across the entire world, and people got the chance to get their shots. Frontline workers and the elderly were the first to receive the vaccine. Reporters asked LeBron if he plans to get vaccinated once he is eligible to do so. He received this question during the All-Star media session.

The four-time NBA champion didn’t provide an outright answer. He even tried to deflect the question away.

“That’s a conversation that my family and I have… Keep that to a private thing.”

Some don’t support LeBron on his take on vaccine

This makes perfect sense for someone who lives in the spotlight. LeBron has been thriving in the spotlight for over two decades. Most people don’t like to talk about their shots. This is not the casual convo you have with other people. We are in the middle of a pandemic and pretty much everyone is interested in LeBron’s opinion on vaccines. The same applies to every celebrity out there. What are they up to? Are they taking shots?

Talking about vaccines is a great way of generating publicity. Some people talk about this to raise awareness.

In the past, Elvis Pressley had a photo-op where he got his polio shot. He decided to do this to raise awareness and increase the number of people willing to follow his example.

When it comes to LeBron, he decided to take the confidential approach with COVID shots. He was heavily criticized for this.

Others support him. Well, it’s his decision.

How will things work in the end? It’s none of our business, right? LeBron can get his shots. He may not get his shots. It’s up to him to make a decision. The four-time NBA champion is in the spotlight, and he will stay there for a while. He will use it as a platform to raise awareness and talk about important topics. He talks about political issues and he is actually doing us a favor.
