LeBron James takes to Twitter to mock the Ohio bar that decided to not show NBA games following James’s ‘YOU’RE NEXT’ tweet.
LeBron James has landed himself in hot water once again, for commenting on a social issue that demanded he comment on it. It seems as though there is no winning for the 4x champ in situations like this as when racial injustices take place within the United States, a large chunk of the public want James to share his view on the ordeal, but when he does, he is flocked with criticism.
In all fairness, LeBron James did take it a tad bit too far this time around. In the wake of yet another member of the black community being gunned down by authorities, LeBron took to Twitter to plaster the officer who fired shots at Ma’Khia Bryant all over his Twitter and captioned the image with, “YOU’RE NEXT”.
James received a bevy of hate for this tweet as they claimed he was inciting violence against officers of the law. He did however, go on to delete the tweet and explained that he was just way too angry in the moment.
LeBron James reacts to the Ohio bar that won’t show any NBA games due to his comments on Twitter.
A man who owns a bar in Ohio, LeBron James’s home state, was very brash in his review of the Lakers superstar’s tweet. So much so that he decided not to show any NBA games at his bar until LeBron James had been ‘expelled’ from the league.
James seems to have found a lot of humor in this as he took to Twitter to sarcastically portray his disappointment for the decision as he was just headed down to the bar for a drink.
Aww Damn! I was headed there to watch our game tonight and have a drink! Welp. 🥴 https://t.co/RRfRksjckM

Considering the fact that LeBron James is the biggest draw in the NBA, there is quite literally no chance the league decides to ‘punish’ him by forcing him to leave the NBA.
With this ‘Ohio bar’ story catching a lot of media attention, it’ll be interesting to see if the bar owner has a response to LeBron’s newest tweet.
