LeBron James offered some bitter thoughts on the prison sentence of actress Lori Laughlin that highlighted the unfairness of the current justice system.
Hours before he would take the floor in the Western Conference Finals, the Los Angeles Lakers forward took to Instagram and reacted to Loughlin being able to choose which prison she can serve her two month sentence at for her part in a college admissions scandal.
“Of her what!!??? James wrote on Instagram on Friday. “I’m laughing cause sometimes you have to just to stop from crying! Don’t make no damn sense to me. We just want the same treatment if committed of same crime that’s all. Is that asking for to much??? Let me guess, it is huh. Yeah I know!! We’ll just keep pushing forward and not expecting the handouts! STRONG, BLACK & POWERFUL!
According to the Los Angeles Times, Loughlin’s request to serve her time at a medium-security federal correctional institution in Victorville, California, was approved by a judge.
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters into USC as phony crew team recruits.
James, the runner-up for the MVP award this season, is trying to lead the Lakers to their first championship since 2010, when Kobe Bryant won his fifth and final title with the team.
