NBA superstar Lebron James is an incredible athlete and absolutely dominates the basketball court. However, his record off the court has been far less stellar, with James racking up an embarrassing record of saying some of the stupidest and most clueless statements on politics and current events possible.
Here are some of the star’s dumbest and most embarrassing moments:
1Candice Owens blames Lebron for BLM violence
In the wake of the LA County Sheriff’s shooting on September 12, conservative author Candice Owens blasted James inciting violence against the police with a tweet that read: “We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our own homes,” which he posted in the wake of the Ahmaud Arbery shooting.
Why does this happen? Because pea-brained celebrities that are idolized like @KingJames tell young black men that they are “literally being hunted”. This is the natural result of such hyperbolic, dishonest rhetoric.
The racist, anti-police, black lives matter LIE is to blame. https://t.co/9U4c1kJgMv
