LeBron James Throws Shots At President Donald Trump Over Latest Speech About Charlottesville (TWEET)
Social Media Reacts To LeBron Saying Donald Trump Made It Fashionable To Hate People (TWEETS)
Over the weekend, hate reared its ugly head when a guy decided to drive his vehicle into a crowd, killing one woman and injuring many others in Charlottesville. The city has basically become a battleground for white supremacists and anti-protesters to go head to head while they continue to fight over various issues—most notably, confederate statues.
Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, like most of the country, watched President Donald Trump’s speech on the incident and he did not like what he saw. So he took to Twitter and voiced his opinion on the 45th President of the United States.
Hate has always existed in America. Yes we know that but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again! Statues has nothing to do with us now!
