Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James took notice of all those who call for his expulsion from the NBA. The whole thing started when LeBron shared a photo of the Columbus police officer who shot Ma’Khia Bryant and wrote, “You’re Next.” A lot of people hated this comment and the four-time NBA champion became a target.
Linne’s Pub doesn’t want LeBron any near the bar. They won’t show NBA games as long as LeBron is in the NBA. Will this change anything? Of course not.
So, the bar told those who want to watch NBA games not to come to his pub. They are not airing NBA games until King James is expelled from the league.
“They just need to play the game and that’s it,” bar owner Jay Linneman added in an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Their opinion doesn’t really matter. They’re using their position to push their opinions, and that’s just not right.”
LeBron is definitely not going anywhere. He wasn’t a fan of this pub, too.
“Aww Damn! I was headed there to watch our game tonight and have a drink! Welp,” he wrote on Saturday.
LeBron James is not even bothered with the potential expulsion from the NBA
LeBron responded to the unhealthy dose of criticism he received.
“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because it’s being used to create more hate. This isn’t about one officer. It’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY,” he wrote on Twitter, and added, “ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!”
LeBron deleted the tweet but a lot of people took notice of it. Donald Trump released a statement on LeBron’s tweet.
“LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA, which has just recorded the lowest television RATINGS, by far, in the long and distinguished history of the league. His RACIST rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning. He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our country together!
He claims that LeBron’s “racist” rants are divisive. Trump used words like “nasty” and “insulting” to share his opinion.
