The post clearly tells that how much James is disturbed from the article and is appealing to people to stop the violence.
LeBron extending support to fellow athletes
Not only for the society, but Lakers star has supported his fellow athletes in recent times. He came out in support of Bubba Wallace (American Race Car driver) on the “Noose” incident in June and has been standing firm with Colin Kaepernick (Former NFL Player) for his stand against the racial discrimination in America.
LeBron James has tried at every point in his career to bring a good change in society with the platform that he has at his disposal. Hopefully, this plea to end any sort of gun violence resonates a positive change in American society.
