Bronny James Jr. was the talk of social media last week after he was seen going to prom with a white girl from his high school. For some reason, the internet was highly upset that he did not take a Black girl instead.
Recently, TMZ caught up with Shannon Sharpe where they asked him about the entire ordeal. As expected, he found the entire thing to be quite ridiculous.
“People would rather you be miserable with someone your own race than you be in love with someone of a different race,” Sharpe said. “It is so utterly ridiculous. People need to get a life. Bronny can’t live his life for someone else. He has to live for him. And, far too many people live their life for other people.”
Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Robert Griffin III sounded off last week on those criticizing James’ decisions in a video posted on Instagram.
“Leave these kids alone,” Griffin III said.
Hopefully, Bronny enjoyed himself and ignored the haters. Being the son LeBron James, he’s probably used to it and has learned to have thick skin just like his father.
