The NBA’s biggest diva Lebron James has made a name for himself outside of basketball, becoming known for his bad political takes which always seem to come back to haunt him – with his latest being no exception.

The ‘oppressed’ billionaire athlete seems to have a problem with the thought of free speech returning to Twitter and made that very clear by suggesting the platform was experiencing a rise in “hate speech.”

James was responding to a report in The Washington Post that claimed there had been a 500% increase in the use of the n-word on Twitter following Musk’s takeover. The report admitted that “Several posts on 4chan encourage users to amplify derogatory slurs,” suggesting that the increase was part of a troll attack.

 

James said, I dont know Elon Musk and, tbh, I could care less who owns twitter, but I will say that if this is true, I hope he and his people take this very seriously because this is scary AF. So many damn unfit people saying hate speech is free speech.”

Musk responded by pointing out that no content moderation changes had been made to the platform and confirmed that the majority of the accounts responsible for the rise of the slur were bots, but that’s not even the worst part for Lebron when it came to this bad take.

Critics quickly pointed out how Lebron himself has a history of spreading hate on the platform, reminding him of an incident which saw him incite violence against an innocent police officer.

  1. With the left it always “rules for thee but not for me”. For the left and inconvenient truth is translated as “hate speech”.

  2. Some one needs to tell James he’s old news. No one gives a crap what he has to say. And no one listens to him.

  3. If anyone is known for spewing hate, it’s LeBron James. He hates White people and is not ashamed to express it.

  4. I don’t really give a damn what this arrogant, barely-got-out-high-school asshat thinks. The only reason he doesn’t live on the streets is because he’s tall and used to be able to handle a basketball. No one cares what this unpatriotic, under-educated worm thinks.

  5. So does anyone give a rat’s ass about what this overpaid whiner who plays a game for a living has to say? Didn’t think so.
