Basketball superstar LeBron James was accused of turning a blind eye to Chinese repression on Tuesday after he criticized a Houston Rockets executive for angering China with a “misinformed” tweet supporting protesters in Hong Kong.
LeBron James is a hardcore Democrat who doesn’t like President Trump, and that is certainly his right to do not like him. But NBA superstar LeBron James also doesn’t appear to have any love for the repressed people of Hong Kong in the fight for freedom from the brutal oppression of Communist China. And why is James so against the Hong Kong revolution? Because if he supports it, he will risk angering Communist China and seeing his lucrative millions dry up overnight. Now you know what type of person LeBron James is.
The people of Hong Kong love America very much, and as their battles for independence has gone on, they have been waving American flags as the chinese police come after them. Why would they do that? Because in the eyes of the entire world, no other country stands for freedom as much as America does. Democrats who used to once be great champions of American values like freedom, couldn’t care less about those things in 2019. LeBron James, for all his talk about the ‘struggles of the black man‘, could be using his global influence to help Hong Kong be free, be he’s not. Not only is he not helping them, he is hurting them so he can get more millions. He said that Daryl Morey was only ‘thinking about himself’ when he tweeted in favor of the Hong Kong protests, but that’s not true. Morey was thinking of the people of Hong Kong who just want their freedom. James is the one who is only thinking of himself.
Shame on you, LeBron James, I hope thousands of your fans start posting videos of them burning your jerseys in the trash can, because that’s where they belong.
LeBron under fire after blaming China row on ‘misinformed’ Rockets GM
FROM YAHOO! SPORTS: LeBron James told reporters that Rockets general manager Daryl Morey “wasn’t educated” on Hong Kong and should have kept his mouth shut, as the outspoken Lakers forward waded into a charged debate that other high-profile NBA figures have shied away from.
“So many people could have been harmed not only financially but physically, emotionally and spiritually. So just be careful with what we tweet, and we say, and we do,” James told reporters when asked for comment in Los Angeles after returning from the NBA’s annual China tour.
His remarks drew praise from Chinese social media users, who have savaged Morey for butting into the country’s affairs, but the US reaction on Twitter was swift and harsh.
“@KingJames — you’re parroting communist propaganda. China is running torture camps and you know it,” said Republican Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, referring to China’s reported incarceration of up to one million Muslim Uighurs in prison-like camps.
The backlash in China against Morey’s comments has cast a cloud over the NBA’s lucrative broadcasting, merchandising and sponsorship interests in the country, where it has legions of fans.
But the NBA also is under pressure from US politicians and media outlets who have urged the league not to buckle under the Chinese criticism.
Following his initial comments to reporters, James — who has a lucrative lifetime endorsement deal with Nike, which does big business in China — attempted to clarify his stance with a pair of subsequent tweets.
“Let me clear up the confusion. I do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences and ramifications of (Morey’s) tweet. I’m not discussing the substance. Others can talk About that,” he wrote.
James’s Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets were thrust into the whirlwind when they arrived in China last week for a pair of pre-season exhibition games after Morey had tweeted: “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.” READ MORE
