Bill O’Reilly had a lot to say about LeBron James over his post about an Ohio cop who killed a teenage girl who was weilding a knife during a fight with multiple people.
Body camera footage showed the shooting victim, 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant, charging at another female armed with a knife, which had the cop responding by shooting her multiple times.
LeBron James reacted to the news on Twitter, in a now-deleted tweet, by sharing an image of the officer involved in the fatal shooting of Bryant, and wrote “YOU’RE NEXT” while hashtagging “ACCOUNTABILITY”.
O’Reilly took to his show and called him out for convicting the cop without knowing anything about what happened.
“So then, LeBron James gets involved.” (Shakes his head in disgust.) I have no animus towards LeBron James, I don’t know him. He is a tremendous athlete, but there’s something wrong here.”
He then brings up the deleted photo that LeBron put up with the caption “You’re next.” He said he was threatening the police officer.
“So James, in Los Angeles, convicts the police officer in Ohio without knowing anything. What’s wrong with the man? What is wrong with him?”
“No clear-thinking, fair-minded person can respect LeBron James any longer.”
He also found a way to bring up Colin Kaepernick and how he wore pig socks to mock police officers.
Fast forward to 3:40 when he starts talking about LeBron:
Social media has also responded to James by calling for a boycott of Space Jam 2:
