Controversy has and will always sell.
LeBron James wanted to change the narrative of what is being seen and used his platform to call out “the media” for their coverage of the nationwide protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.
James shared multiple videos on Twitter that showed large numbers of people deserving of coverage because they were not engaging in all the destruction and looting that we have all seen on our local news.
“Is the media showing this??? I bet you they aren’t,” James wrote, sharing a video of a protest in Washington, D.C. “This is beautiful.”
“Media showing this???? I bet you they’re not,” James said of another video showing a peaceful protest in Colorado. “You know why, cause this is unity, peaceful, beautiful and love!”
LeBron, Anthony Davis and several other Lakers players also posted the same exact merssage on Instagram over the weekend as well.
“If YOU ain’t with US, WE ain’t with Y’ALL” the message reads.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
