O.J. Simpson is not agreement with what LeBron James did in response to an Ohio cop killing a 16-year-old Black girl.
The former NFL running back told LeBron that he should’ve waited for the facts to come out, because the video told it all.
“You can’t fight every battle.”
“This one, LeBron should’ve waited.”
“The police guy had no choice. We wish he could’ve done it in another way, but in that instance, if he hadn’t done what he did, it appeared to me another young American would’ve had her life taken.”
James deleted a tweet calling out the Columbus, Ohio police officer who fatally shot 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant and later explained why on Twitter.
“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police,” he said on Twitter. “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”
The Los Angeles Lakers forward originally posted a tweet showing a photo of officer Nicholas Reardon. The tweet included the caption, “YOU’RE NEXT” with an hourglass emoji.
