LeBron James Deletes Tweet Telling Officer ‘You’re Next’

'I’m so damn tired of seeing black people killed by police..."

(Headline USA) Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James posted and then deleted a tweet Wednesday that singled out a police officer after body camera footage showed the officer shot a woman wielding a knife against another girl.

James’ tweet showed an image of the officer. Above it he wrote, “you’re next.”

James deleted the tweet after a flood of criticism, and he later went on Twitter to defend himself.

“ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself!” James said on twitter. “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!”

James used a word the Democrats and liberals have rallied around in recent days, replacing “justice” with “accountability.”

“I’m so damn tired of seeing black people killed by police,” James said. “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.”

Shortly after the guilty verdict for Derek Chauvin in the murder trial for George Floyd, the fatal shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant went viral.

James and liberal activists pounced on the incident and began calling for accountability, but the body cam footage slowed their enthusiasm.
