LeBron James Savaged on Twitter Over Pro-Communist China Rant

Twitter was absolutely brutal to @KingJames – and he may have very well deserved it.

If you thought that kneeling during the National Anthem was bad, sports fans, I have something that is going to throw you into an unfathomable rage.

This week has been a pretty bad one for the NBA, after one team’s General Manager sparked a Chinese boycott of the league by tweeting his support for the pro-democracy demonstrations taking place in Hong Kong.

While “pro-democracy” is sort of America’s thing, the NBA decided to cower to the communist Chinese government instead.  As it turns out, standing for Americans’ freedom of speech in this case would simply cost the league too much money in lost revenue.

That’s right:  The NBA sold out the First Amendment to garner Chinese fans.

Now the league is in total panic mode, attempting to stave off the boycott and bring the game back into the Far East at full force.  They’ve even trotted their number one show pony out to try and make amends.

King James literally just sided with China over The Constitution.

Americans of all stripes took notice, voicing their frustrations on Twitter.

LeBron would go on to make matters worse by tweeting that the league “had a rough week”, and that he was just trying to spread awareness – a day late/buck short backpedaling that was even more offensive than his original, dictator-sympathizing statement.
