Social Media Responds to LeBron James’ Tweets Regarding Trump
Following Neo-Nazi rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James took to twitter targeting Donald Trump’s ineffectiveness as the president of the United States.
Hate has always existed in America. Yes we know that but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again! Statues has nothing to do with us now!

Well, his latest tweet was the breaking point for many of his followers, as a ton of them decided to respond to LeBron’s criticism of the president. Some of the responses praised James for speaking out on such important topics, while others were very unsatisfied and simply just want LeBron the basketball player to stay in his lane.

Being a transcendent superstar like James, when he speaks, people listen, but often times many clearly will have their own opinion.
