LeBron James is taking a TON of heat for his response to Daryl Morey’s comments on China and the Hong Kong protestors.
The outrage extends far beyond NBA fans. The world heard LeBron James and the people aren’t happy. Many including First Take’s Max Kellerman believe LeBron James has “sold out” with his take on Daryl Morey.
After LeBron tweeted “My team and this league just went through a difficult week” because of Morey’s comments, the internet broke with fury.
It’s unbelievable how LeBron went from being percieved as the man of the people to an entitled multi-millionaire after one quick interview and tweet.
Many expressed that they feel LeBron James’ tweet was insensitive and disrespectful to the people who are enduring real suffering and persecution in China.
However, during his interview he also mentioned, “so many people could have been harmed” by Daryl Morey’s comments.
Nevertheless, it is unclear whether that was LeBron recognizing the gravity of the situation in China and believing Morey’s comments would cause harm for some of their people or speaking about his own experiences and concerns.
Here are some of the harshest things people have had to say about LeBron James’ response to Daryl Morey (the last one is HILARIOUS).
