Wednesday, the famous NBA professional basketball player and social media star tweeted a picture of a police officer involved in the altercation between two women.
The police officer had to shoot the woman carrying a knife as she tried to stab the other one. The suspect, Ma’Khia Bryant, died from the gunshot wound.
James tweeted the officer’s full-body picture along with the words “YOU’RE NEXT” and came with an hourglass emoji, implying time is running out.
“LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA, which has just recorded the lowest television RATINGS, by far, in the long and distinguished history of the League.
His RACIST rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning. He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our Country together!” Trump stated.
James Issues A Follow Up
Outrage over James’ tweet came to a head that the Lakers star had to delete his tweet less than two hours after posting. He released a follow-up tweet on his earlier statement to clarify but fell short of apologizing for his statement.
“ANGER does [sic] any of us any good and that includes myself!” James said. “Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened to that Lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!” he said.
“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because it's 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,” he added.
Outrage Over James’ Tweet
The woke James’s tweet sparked widespread pushback against the NBA star. Many said that with many claiming that he was putting a target on the back of the police officer.
The National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) responded to James’ tweet. “@KingJames, with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in.
This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact,” the group’s official account posted.
What Really Happened
Michael Woods, interim police chief of Columbus, said at a press conference that the officer had to shoot the suspect as she was about to stab another person.
He said a video of the incident showed “the female with the knife,” who the police officer shot and killed, was “attempting to stab” another female in the video.
“Normally we don’t provide information this soon, but we understand the public’s need, desire, and expectation to have transparency upon what happened,” Woods said. “We’ve worked very hard tonight to provide you a short video of the officer, the first officer that arrived at the scene and this is the officer that did ultimately fire his weapon,” he added.
Columbus Mayor Calls For Calmness
During the same press briefing, Columbus Mayor addressed the media. “We know, based on this footage, the officer took action to protect another young girl in our community, but a family is grieving tonight and this young 15-year-old girl will never be coming home,” he said.
“We think it’s critically important to share as much information as possible, as quickly as possible. So we’ll continue to share footage, other information in the hours and days ahead, making sure we’re not in any way shape, or form compromising the independent investigation being done by BCI.
We felt transparency and sharing this footage as incomplete as it may be at this time is critically important to make sure we were sharing good accurate information about what transpired today with the public and for this grieving family,” he implored.

Do you agree with President Donald Trump’s assertion that woke LeBron James’ tweet does nothing to help the situation? Do you find woke LeBron James as a suitable role model or spokesperson for athletes?
Let us know what you think. Share your comments below.
Traitor trump was and is e disgrace! What ever he says is the same B.S. and has little meaning, like the boy he is!
If the officer is next to die, then maybe lebron should be next after that. The officer took a life to save a live, I feel for her parents, but she had the chance to not die by dropping the knife.
TRUMP!NEED TO SIT DOWN OR LAY DOWN SOMEWHERE! HE HAVE DONE ENOUGH DAMAGE TO LAST S LIFETIME!!! DONALD TRUMP IS A THING OF THE PAST!WE HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT! PRESIDENTJOE BIDEN❤🙂! LEAVE LEBRON ALONE!!HE CAN SPEAK HIS MIND! THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY! LOOK AT ALL THE STUFF TRUMP DID AND SAID TO US!When he was President!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! GOODBYE MR.DONALD TRUMP! I PUT MR. ON THERE TRYING TO BE NICE!🙂
Lebron easily judges and tweets from within the safety of his mansion walls….behind a screen. Mr. James may I suggest you walk in a police officers boots for a day and face life and death decisions to be made within seconds? What if that was your daughter that about to get stabbed? Would have not wanted him to protect her? Sadly it is my opinion you would have had the same reaction should he had not defended her 😔 There was no winner in this situation. Accountability?? Check YOURSELF first!!
ISN’T IT AMAZING HOW THE LEFT CAN TURN THINGS AROUND WHEN THEIR AT FAULT. THEY NEVER ASSUME RESPONSIBILTY FOR THEIR ACTIONS. LET’S TURN THIS ALL ON TRUMP, BECUASE OF HIS TRUE STATEMENT.
LEBRON HAD NO REASON TO COME OUT WITH A STATEMENT BEFORE HE KNEW THE FACTS ! AMERICA IS FALLING APART BECAUSE OF BIDEN BEING IN OFFICE… NOT TRUMP. LET’S PUT THE BLAME WHERE IT BELONGS ! LEBRON WAS IN THE WRONG ,,, LET’S FACE THE TRUE FACTS PEOPLE.
Jennifer, I agree with you 100% it’s easy to say what you would do when your not in the situation. Thus let me say why is it Lebron James isn’t sensored in his statement of incite.
James should be ashamed of himself the nation will never heal with remarks like that and I don’t care if he sees my remarks he should see them
Lebone should be arrested for incitement of violence! He’s one punk that will be kneecapped if he keeps his racist bullshit up!
And that goes for Clarine Wagner above too! 🖕🏼🖕🏼
Screw the Lebron James and the rest of the Woke society!!!
God bless Officer Riordan ….. he save the black girls life unfortunately a black girl had to die because she didn’t drop the knife ….. she didn’t drop the knife Mr. LeBron … but a majority of the black community doesn’t see that …. how many more Black people have to die before they start using their head and listen to what a cop tells you to do show me your hands put the gun down hands on the car DROP THE KNIFE…… how many news reports if we seen of black protesters protesting blacks killing blacks Mr. LeBron can you answer that …. where are all the marches and paintings on the street saying blacks stop killing blacks …. officer Reardon made a critical choice he should be praised and applauded …but nooooooo we the black community don’t wanna talk about blacks taking blacks lives it’s about the police Taking black lives
Claire, Claire, Claire: I would bet $ that your view of President Trump is based on what you probably heard on MSM (Mainstream Media) The Network & Cable News. You realize they were and are in the tank for left wing, Dems, the New Word Order and he 0.01% that actually give the orders to media etc. and tho’ all of us people are at bottom of the Pyramid of Death just keep in mind that Politicians are just above US. You don’t really think Jo-Jo & Kamalhair are actually calling the shots do you!? President Trump was & is Greatest President ever along w/JFK. Lebron James is an idiot and always will be just like those that voted for Dems.. Of course you should know by watching news Tv in general you are being “programmed” right??
I unplugged in 2011. Do my own research and Do Not Watch News, the NBA or NFL because they are to political and all lean toward radical left idealism and Socialism. Get a Clue Girl…&
It’s a DISGRACE that these kind of people in our country are the one’s getting paid all that kind of money. Why anybody would want to watch him anyway is beyond me, well there is good and bad in all races, but they are trying to make the white people the cause of all there problems that they bring on there selves. Why don’t they get out and get a job instead of having babies with every white, black and whoever they can breed with. And then I have to pay so they can sit home and drink there 40’s. I am sick of it and we have just about had enough.
JJ Johnson!NO I’M NOT GOING TO JAIL!! I FELT THAT COP DID’NT HAVE TO KILL HER!!! I CAN TELL THAT YOU’RE RACIST!! IS THIS ABOUT THE POLICE OFFICER OR DONALD TRUMP?
LeBron James is king nothing. Sj early shut up.
Claire I didn’t forget about you, shut up and go make me a sandwich.
This situation would not have happened if someone had taught this young girl how to cope with her emotions and express herself appropriately instead of acting out of her mind, yelling and screaming and threatening others with a weapon. The girl she attacked was just standing there, with a dog in her arms for crying out loud. Boston Terrier Lives Matter too! This was assault with a deadly weapon and the presence of the police officer didn’t even cause her to pause. Maybe it’s time for only black police officers to respond to calls involving black perpetrators…this is the position woke idiots like LeBron and the media are putting us all in.
LeBron James is an idiot. I have not and never will watch the NBA or football or baseball. It is my choice how I spend my money. It won’t be on his sorry racist ass. Loser!
Totally Agree Overpaid looser~ NBA Sucks just like James
I think LeBron James is a complete asshole and should know all the facts before he opens his big mouth. All he is doing is putting more fuel on the fire. The officer told the girl to drop the knife and of course she didn’t listen to the officers order . Unfortunately it is her own fault that she is dead today. The officer saved the life of another human being. He should not be blamed for doing his job. Some people should do the right thing and let the video speak for itself. It is a shame that girl died but all she had to do is drop the knife and all of this could have been avoided. Shut the hell up LeBron and make your millions playing a game while most people have to go out and actually work for a living. I’m a laker fan but not a LeBron James fan. I wish the Lakers never got him. God bless the girl that died and her family. God bless us all.
Who cares about JAMES trump is the best PREIDENT WE HAVE EVER HAD SHUT UR james
Stupid is as stupid does. He should be thrown out of the NBL. Why would he even get involved? Just another idiot who thinks he can demean anyone because he is famous. Go join the rest of the communists you support LeBron. See if they will pay you millions of dollars because you can throw a ball in a hoop!
Court jester, low IQ Lebron doesn’t have the grey matter needed to think out an issue before he opens his pie hole. Go and move to China. We don’t need you here contributing nothing to society except racism and divisiveness. Hu-Rah for President Trump–the best and current legal president of this country.
Do what you want still a free country. Well at least for a little while yet. I do not watch football or basketball because these over paid cry babies like James think they know it all Quit watching NFL in 2016 when Colin cancer began kneeling disgracing our country. Do not watch NBA either ON Jan 6th Pres Trump said Protest PEACEFULLY and Patiotically Look what Waters said!! Pres Trump certainly was not a polished politician but he got so many positive things done. It was amazing!!! Great President based on his accomplishments!
No winner in this situation, especially the cop. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. As for LeBron..go dribble a basketball and stay out of politics, ya suck at both.
The statement made by LeBron James is beyond stupid and is a testimonial to the type of person he is on and off the court…a self absorbed “crybaby” who if he really cared would educate himself with the facts and use his influence to promote “unity” instead of perpetuating these false narratives of systemic racism by police. And furthermore, if you LeBron are such a activist sounding off in anger, where is that outrage, your voice and activism toward stopping blacks from killing blacks? I suggest you educate yourself with those numbers and use your influence where it is desperately needed. Police Officers are hired to serve and protect and up hold the law and if people STOP breaking the law then wouldn’t that be proactive and a move in the right direction? My suggestion to you LeBron is give up your prima-donna behavior you feel you are entitled to as a NBA player and take a walk in a Police Officer’s shoes, someone who puts their life on the line every time they put their badge on to protect stupid, uneducated people like you!
James sounds like he’s the son of Maxine Waters or at the very least an attentive student of hers. Put him against any of the greats at his position, bball greats, and he comes in last in talent, 1st in mouth!
Buck up Buttercups and act like you got some sense! People need to band together. Your just picking the Wrong Topics.
Mr. James and the rest of the athletes that get paid millions because they can simply dribble, throw, or pass a ball are simply stupid. In what other country would this be possible?NONE! Kneeling for the National Anthem was just the beginning of the end for all of them. NBA, NFL, NBL have a major problem why do they allow their employees and that’s what these athletes are EMPLOYEES behave this way? In what other job would an employee be allowed to hold a ten minute protest before beginning their day? NONE! This posting is just an example of a self important, loudmouth, that craves attention and receives it for the wrong reasons. Police officers, Military, our First Responders put their lives on the line every day for OUR FREEDOM and PROTECTION. Mr. James exactly how many times have YOU put YOURSELF in the line of fire or have done ANYTHING for the benefit of the public besides throw a ball in a hoop? I am sure you have donated money yada yada but it’s easy to write a check. The real content of your character comes from your ACTIONS. And your action of posting the photo of an officer that basically threatens his life and who will live with his decision to shoot one girl to save another is SHAMEFUL! You Mr. James have a platform you could actually do some good …you could speak on the multiple shootings that happen every weekend in Chicago but because it’s black on black crime does it not count, is it not worth your time? Or do you just want to alienate Americans that pay for your expensive homes and cars by attending your games or buying your merchandise? Or are you just going to rely on the Chinese to do that? The word systematic is used often so let’s use it. The Chinese government have systematically murdered its own citizens by starvation, execution, and in slave labor camp for years. They are systematically sterilizing and raping Muslim and Christian women and girls. But because the NBA does business A LOT of business with China all is forgiven? So the next time you want to shoot your mouth off about something you have NO experience in think twice. Hope you are saving some of that money. Due to yours and other athletes ridiculous rhetoric against the police, veterans and even our last president will be the end of major league sports as YOU once knew it. Keep it up then maybe YOU will have to find a job where YOU might have to make a life and death decision not just throw a ball in a hoop. I for one am disappointed and disgusted and many Americans agree so just be quiet and play the game THAT’S your job to simply ENTERTAIN people. If you have comments on social or political issues please EDUCATE yourself first. It’s always best to remain quiet and allow people to think you are the most intelligent person in the room than open your mouth and reveal just how clueless you are. And who calls themselves King? Study some history please. Find out what “Kings” did to their own people, maybe you will reconsider your self given title or remain just as ignorant as you are about this police shooting! Would it have been different if the police officer was black? Or if the girls fighting were white? It wouldn’t have been a blip on your radar. You see what you want to see. I see a law enforcement office saving another girls life. I also see him becoming very rich when he sues you for putting his life in danger. Get off of social media read a history book!
No one should support LeBron James, nor should he be considered a suitable role model for anything!
Typical Hollywood outlook because that is what he is now.
How can Lebron James and other idiots like him not see that it is the black people’s fault for breaking the law, not listening to the police, and usually trying to evade arrest? It’s pretty damn simple to obey the laws, do what the police instruct you to do, and to accept that you got caught and go to jail when the police are trying to arrest you. Any idiot or black person should understand by now that if you break the law and don’t listen to the police when they show up to arrest you, then you could end up getting shot! I mean damn! It ain’t brain surgery! Police aren’t out there shooting innocent law abiding black people. They are doing their jobs and stopping criminals! If you don’t want to get shot and killed, then don’t commit crimes and disobey police! It’s not white people’s fault that black people act like a bunch of monkeys. Black people need to start taking the responsibility of teaching their children how to act and behave in a community. It’s their failures at teaching their children how to become law abiding citizens that can contribute to a community instead of poisoning it that has caused the down fall of our society. Of course they can’t take ownership of that, and instead blame the white man like always. Every stupid choice every black person makes every day for the past hundred years or more is apparently somehow the white man’s fault. Lebron said that he’s tired of seeing black people shot by police…well white men are tired of being blamed for every black person’s dumbass decisions! Don’t commit crimes Lebron with a weapon in your hand and then disobey the police when they show up to arrest you, or you’ll be next…and it won’t be the white police officer’s fault for having to shoot your ass!
Claire and SJ it’s convenient for you to bash Trump when you have no excuse for the bad behavior of others. Trump is a private citizen just as your “King James” (which is just egotistical bullshit) and has the right to say anything he wants that’s what freedom means. But you DO NOT have the right to put people’s lives in danger and that’s exactly what “King IDIOT” did he put his and his entire family’s life at risk. I hope this officer sues the absolute shit out of this loudmouth uninformed jackass then maybe some of the self important athletes/entertainers will think twice before posting ridiculous rhetoric. You are DONE KING JAMES! America got rid of its king by kicking the red coats out on their ass we can do the same to LeBron James!
That officer was too far away to do anything but shot. She was ordered to drop the knife and get down. If she had, she would be alive today. She caused her own demise. This officer had no alternative and did his job. He protected and saved a life you idiot out there that said he did not have to kill her. Your more than an idiot. Maybe a….hole would be a better description.
Stay out of politics and go play ball.
Go play ball something you know.
Now we have a racist tyrant for a President and no one says anything. If people start to tell the truth, obama and biden will go down in history as the most traitorousl, corrupt presisents in history. Obama is a disgusting, racist, divisive supporting hamas and plo, while raping otber countries of their wealth! 3,000% wealthier out of office?! A do nothing mediocre lawyer for anout 10 years and then a corrupt senator! Yet now hes got billions and is so green he bought a big mansion for the 2 of them. I bet he flies on a plane with just him and jaba the hut! And biden, christ, the most disgusting, brain dead, petulant little 3 year old. “Everything Donald Trump did, I have to reverse.” Lets see his taxes with all of the money from the Ukraine, Moscow, etc. Let’s see, they had a while year to watch and learn from the other admin and yet no direction at all on covid. Just pump the poisonous “vaccine” in people as quickly as possible, thousands of illegals being let in daily, with covid! Jobs being lost, buying oil from China, toy potatoes are offensive.
We have a President with dementia. An ex-call girl for a Vice President. A transvestite over HHS. A President’s son who is a crackhead, a human-trafficking pedophile who money laundered billions from other countries sharing half with his dad. The crackhead’s buddy is the head of the DEA. The crackhead’s other buddy is now in the DOJ. A guy who is sleeping with the Chinese spy is over our DHS. We are borrowing all of our money now from China. Thousands of immigrants are coming in for our jobs and Social Security Benefits. And the Democrats are still focusing on destroying a former President. Add this to the 40,000 jobs lost in the past months. Yet we are supposed to believe that Biden is pro America? You just can’t make all this up.
I’m with Melissa. Nice post,you slammed king nothing.
LE BRON JAMES CONTINUES TO PROVE WHAT A TOTAL MORON HE IS,NOTE TO THE IDIOT BASKETBALL PLAYER WHOSE CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY IS THAT HE CAN PUT A ROUND BALL THROUGH A HOOP WHILE STANDING UNDER THE HOOP WE DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT ANYTHING YOU HAVE TO SAY ,AND STILL YOU SAY THAT MALCOLM X WAS A VERY SMART MAN ;WHAT A JOKE YOU AND THIS CRIMINAL HAVE PROVEN YOURSELF TO BE!

Why are people STILL listening to Trump, they need to get over him, the world doesn’t revolve around his every word, the man is a has been, he showed his true colors during the election and after by not letting his successor into important meetings. or shamed his own country in front of a communist leader and many other underhanded things too numerous to mention, yet people still bend over to kiss his “ring” ..a pox and shame on all of those who think he’s so great………….
Labron james, king of fools. Stupid is as stupid does! Your anticipated racial civil war will not happen no matter how much hate you spew. The videos are clear, the officer was a hero. Yeah, I’m white and proud of it! What of it punk?
That basketball player is nothing and he knows it!! Why don’t you just crawl away in a big hole and stay there for the rest of your life! You are ugly too!!😂😂😂😂😂😂
Lebron James is just an ignorant asshole
If the police officer had let the girl stab her the news and media would ruin the officers life for not stopping her. He would be a racist. It’s a no win situation. I would love to see Mr. James put in that situation and see what he would do. What an asshole.
People please stop all of this bull crap this man was a hero sad the irl was shot but you clearly see the knife she was going to use the apple does not fall from the tree does it? We need police all colors so please stop all these arguments please realize we need to Unite seriously and we need each other more than anything read your good book Adam and Eve all mother and father to ALL ethniticities truth read it please….. the color of skins And languages we changed.

These are already hard times the enemies like the upheaval. we need peace amomgst all of the turbulence…. So very sorry the girl lost her life truly…. is the other one ok she was violently kicked in the head repeatedly? Is the police men ok too?
LeBron has never said anything that made sense. He thinks he’s somebody because he can play basketball.
And as for Trump. He’ll be back. Get used to it you fairies!!
Teach your kids not to attack a other person. Poop I for got that’s what black girls do it and dog fighting is what black football players do and drug addicts resist arest the black ones. Hell blacks kill more of each other than the police ever will. BLM burning down a town near you soon.
People who live in secure fenced neighborhoods should shut up and be happy. Running your mouth and fuckin people out of their hard earned money is not very admirable !! Trump would’ve had this under control
The devil is a Democrat.
