Last week, LeBron James grabbed an official and directed him to two Indiana Pacers fans sitting courtside and prompted them to throw them out for something they did.
Donald Trump Jr. took to Instagram on Saturday and referred to the Lakers star as a ‘bitch’ as well as ‘LeKaren.’
Among the many people who had something to say about Don Jr’s words was Jemele Hill.
The former ESPN personality took to Twitter and blasted him.
“Don Jr. called LeBron a “bitch,” knowing full well he wouldn’t do shit but ask for an autograph if he ever saw LeBron face to face.
Also, the irony of calling another man a bitch while limiting the comments on your post …”
Midway through overtime against the Pacers, James spoke to the referee and appeared to gesture at two fans sitting courtside. The pair were subsequently escorted out by security from Gainbridge Fieldhouse.
“There’s a difference between cheering on your home faithful, booing opponents, not wanting your opponents to be successful and there’s then moments where it goes outside the line with obscene gestures and words,” James told reporters when asked about the incident after the game.
“That shouldn’t be tolerated in our game from nobody. I would never say it to a fan and a fan should never say it to a player.”
The LA Lakers star was back on court for the first time following his second-ever career ejection against the Detroit Pistons last Sunday.
James stepped up with a season-high 39 points as well as six assists and five rebounds to drag his team over the line.
