People are upset with LeBron James after his tweet where he seemingly threatened a police officer.
This week, the 36-year-old L.A. Lakers player took to his Twitter and posted a photo of the white police officer who tragically killed young teen, Ma’Khia Bryant. “You’re Next #Accountability,” he captioned the photo of the officer in question, Nicholas Reardon.
LeBron then took down the tweet and then shared an explanation as to why he deleted it.
“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police,” LeBron wrote. “I took the tweet down because its 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.”
However, people are still upset with LeBron and have started a campaign on Twitter to boycott his upcoming movie Space Jam 2.
“#boycottspacejam @KingJames crossed a line. He needs to be held accountable,” one person tweeted.
Space Jam 2 premieres July 16 in theaters and on HBO Max – check out the trailer here.
