He deserves what he’s getting.
Basketball superstar Lebron James recently made a huge mess-up after tweeting out a photograph of the police officer who saved a girl from being stabbed with a caption of “YOU’RE NEXT.”
James promptly deleted the tweet, but not before many chastised him for adding more fuel to the fire.

Instead of apologizing for what he said, James tweeted, “ANGER does [sic] any of us any good and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!”
“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. 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.”
