James has since then removed the post from his social media account.James is no stranger to controversy, this is the second-racially charge controversy of the weekend. Earlier this week he lashed out at NFL owners for having 'slave mentality' towards their players. James said NFL players, mainly African-American, are frequently subject to treatment he equated to slavery.“In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality. And it’s like, ‘This is my team. You do what the f*** I tell y’all to do. Or we get rid of y’all,'" James said on the HBO show The Shop.
Surprised LeBron, who makes very few mistakes, put this out. Does quoting lyrics from a song absolve the person quoting from the responsibility behind the words? I’d argue no, especially with a following of 45 million. pic.twitter.com/efv9gkXres— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) December 23, 2018
Do I think LeBron is anti-Semitic? I have no idea. He’s quoting a lyric from a rap song he likes just like Virginia Tech women’s lacrosse team & Divincenzo. But why does the same standard from left wingers not apply to LeBron as it did to them? Shouldn’t they be outraged?— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) December 23, 2018
