Haha! I never thought I would live to see the day!
I mean O.J. calling out Lebron over the police?! It honestly does not get better than this right here. LeBron James has been pretty outspoken about his feelings towards the police lately.
When will sports go back to being just sports and not a political billboard?
The NBA and Lebron are FAR from the only ones promoting this sort of thing in sports. Again, I think the old adage holds true here: follow the money.
Take a look:
Fox News had more:
O.J. Simpson took to social media Thursday to address the controversy surrounding NBA star LeBron James for his tweet targeting an Ohio police officer and slam the media for showing "edited versions" of the shooting that resulted in the death of 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant.
Simpson posted a nearly two-minute-long video to his Twitter where he began by saying that while he is a "fan" of the Los Angeles Lakers star and "admires" the work he’s done to advocate against social injustices, he believes James spoke prematurely on Tuesday’s officer-involved shooting.
"You can’t fight every battle. You gotta pick your battles," Simpson said. "It’s a war that must be fought but sometimes you need to take your time and be a little more patient before you comment on some of these bad incidents that are happening with police departments. This one, LeBron should’ve waited."
The New York Post had this to report:
“The police guy had no choice, he responded,” said the Juice, who in 1995 infamously beat criminal charges that he himself used a blade to hack his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her pal Ronald Goldman to death.
“We wished he could have pulled a Taser but in that incident, if he didn’t do what he did, another young American would have her life taken.”
James drew the attention of the 73-year-old convicted felon by putting out a controversial tweet about the death of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant — who was revealed to be wielding her knife only after the basketball star posted his comment.
“YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY,” James tweeted Tuesday, along with an image of Columbus Police Officer Nicholas Reardon, who fired the fatal shot.
But when new details emerged, James deleted the tweet.
