LeBron James’ eldest son, Bronny James blew up social media as he posted photos with his date from his high school prom night. It did not blow up in a good way as fans took to the pictures and pointed out how he was going to the prom with a White girl.
When you are the son of LeBron James, one of the world’s most renowned athletes, every decision of yours, on the court and off the court, gets overanalyzed.
It was a situation that Robert Griffin III knows all too well, which is why he came out in defense of Bronny.
“LEAVE THESE KIDS ALONE! People clowning Bronny for his prom date are just miserable. Let them enjoy their day,” Griffin III tweeted.
He would then go to Instagram and release a video.
“Bronny James upset a bunch of miserable people tonight because he decided to take a white girl to prom as his date. First of all, it’s 2022. What’s wrong with that?”
“It’s giving weird energy that a bunch of grown men and women are trying to tell a 17-year-old who they think he should bring to prom.”
“People have major problems with THEMSELVES attacking a 17-year-old kid, his wife said in the comments.
Bronny is one of the best recruits in the country for the class of 2023. James is listed as the fourth-best player in California and the No. 39 overall player in the country, per 247Sports Composite.
