UFC’s Colby Covington Blasts LeBron For His Double Standards: ‘You’re A Chinese Finger Puppet’ (TWEET)
Colby Covington seriously does not like LeBron James. He is no stranger to calling him out as the devout Trump supporter was most vocal about LeBron and his political takes during the NBA bubble.
Covington never received the reply that he wanted, so he is at it again after the UFC star launched another attack on King James this time with this tweet:
“When are you gonna speak up about Hong Kong? Oh that’s right, you can’t. You’re a Chinese finger puppet! You make millions playing a kids game & talk about “social justice” but have no problem paying Chinese women in sweatshops pennies to make your products. Slimeball.”
LeBron has been under constant attack after his comments about GM Daryl Morey when he tweeted out “Free Honk Kong.”
“I believe there are ramifications for others when you don’t think about what you say or tweet. I don’t believe Daryl Morey was educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke. So many people could have been harmed – not only financially but physically, emotionally, spiritually.”
James fired back AC Milan striker Ibrahimovic who recently called him out for speaking about politics: “I like him (James) a lot. He’s phenomenal, but I don’t like when people with a status speak about politics. Do what you’re good at doing.”
“There‘s no way I will ever just stick to sports because I understand how this platform … how powerful my voice is,” James said after the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Portland Trailblazers on Saturday.
“I speak from a very educated mind,” James added. “I‘m kind of the wrong guy to actually go at because I do my homework.”
