LeBron James has a ton of talent, a ton of money, and also a ton of haters.
UFC star Colby Covington is one of them, and he recently doubled-down on the Los Angeles Lakers star in a recent interview with the Daily Wire. First, he accused him of using his school and charities as a tax write-off.
“I know firsthand, when you’re making a lot of money, you need tax write-offs, and these schools, these charities, yeah, he wants to look like a good guy on camera, like he’s doing good for the people,” Covington said. “This is just a tax write-off, man, for his billion-dollar business. He needs this so he can keep all that cash in the bank. It’s not this charitable, nice guy that everybody thinks. ‘Oh, LeBron, he’s giving back to the kids.’ No, he’s just doing that so he can get a tax write-off and keep more money in the bank.”
Covington also branded James as a “hypocrite” and a “Chinese puppet master” in his lengthy tirade against the NBA and their biggest star.
“Just a big hypocrite,” Covington says of the Lakers star. “He talks about his two biggest things he loves to talk about equality and justice. Where’s the equality of employing women in Chinese sweatshops to make your merchandise for millions for millions of dollars while they’re making pennies? Where’s the equality in that?
“Where’s the justice in critiquing the greatest country on God’s green Earth America but not talking about Hong Kong, not talking about the Uyghurs in China? He stays silent on everything in China because he’s a Chinese puppet master.”
Covington is the No. 1-ranked welterweight in UFC who has been beefing with LeBron in the past for his stances on social issues and politics. The beef is one-sided as LeBron has never acknowledged his existence.
