Have you seen the viral TikTok video of the Idaho police officer mocking LeBron James? Deputy Nate Silvester poked fun at the NBA star following his now-deleted Twitter post that said, “You’re next #accountability.”
The video shows the officer pretending to call LeBron to ask for his advice on handling criminal activities.
Instead of supporting their fellow officer, his department suspended Silvester without pay. Unbelievable! Even Idaho’s law enforcement hierarchy seems to be embracing the “woke” cancel culture.
Thankfully, Americans cared enough to respond. An online fundraiser was set up. More than $80,000 has been raised for him already. Maybe Silvester can retire from the force and speak out against the ridiculous mocking of police officers if his department won’t take him back.
He won’t make quite as much as LeBron, but at least he’s willing to put his life on the life to protect American lives.
If you’ve missed out on the LeBron spoof action and the aftermath, you have to check it out. And even if you’ve seen the video, you won’t believe the way his department has handled it.
Of course, you can also help out. The online fundraiser is still live. See the video for details.
