LeBron James Explains, "Why I Deleted ‘YOU’RE NEXT’ Tweet.
LeBron James came incredible scrutiny after posting a pic of a police officer present at the Ma’Khia Bryant shooting with a caption that read, “YOU’RE NEXT.”
James deleted the tweet, and said:
“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,” he wrote.
James focuses on the police officer who shot Bryant is white, and Bryant is black. What he fails to mention is: the woman Bryant was attacking was black. So the officer used deadly force to save a black woman’s life.
Still furious many Twitter fans are not buying James’ reasoning.
