“If anyone wants to watch an NBA game, don’t come to Linnie’s Pub,” owner Jay Linneman said.
“We will not air them until LeBron James has been expelled from the NBA. They just need to play the game, and that’s it,” Linnerman said. “Their opinion doesn’t really matter. They’re using their position to push their opinions, and that’s just not right.”
Lebron Responded with a Tweet “Aww Damn! I was headed there to watch our game tonight and have a drink! Welp,” he tweeted.
Immediately following the tragedy, LeBron James tweeted “You’re Next.” To a police officer standing near the incident.
James deleted the photo minutes afterward due to backlash and issued another tweet to explain. “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 wrote.
