NBA superstar LeBron James called out actress Lori Loughlin’s sentencing on the same day his teenage son posted a video smoking what appears to be a blunt on Instagram.
In an Instagram post Friday, James uploaded a screenshot of a Vanity Fair article with the headline: “Lori Loughlin Will Get to Serve Her Two Month Sentence at the Prison of Her Choice.”
“Of her what!!???” He wrote. “I’m laughing cause sometimes you have to just stop from crying! Don’t make no damn sense to me.”
A judge approved the former Fuller House actress’ request to serve time at Victorville, a low-security federal correctional institution close to her California home, for her role in the Varsity Blues college admissions scandal.
James, who has been using his stardom to weigh in on social justice issues, wrote: “We just want the same treatment if committed of same crime that’s all. Is that asking too much???”
Celebrities commented in reaction to the Lakers player’s post. Rapper T.I. posted, “Sounds about white.” Actress Viola Davis asked, “Is she going to choose her meal program, too??!!” Actor Larenz Tate added, “White priv… never mind. We know what it is… ALWAYS!”
James wrapped up his comment with, “We’ll just keep pushing forward and not expecting the handouts! STRONG, BLACK & POWERFUL!”
The NBA icon has since deleted the post, perhaps because the same day his comments went viral, his teenage son took to the same social media platform to post a video of himself allegedly smoking weed.
In a four second clip, 15-year-old Bronny James can be seen taking a hit off of what appears to be a blunt, ghosting the excess smoke like a professional, and exhaling without coughing.

Bronny removed the video, but social media reacted swiftly and captured screenshots.
One user commented, “not his first time that ghost was too good.”

Another made a joke about how Bronny would explain the video to James.

@Jctorres bets that Bronny’s hoping for the NBA Finals to go to game seven.

Because Bronny’s probably going to catch some serious flack for embarrassing his famous dad.
