OJ Simpson slams LeBron James for tweet on Ma’Khia Bryant shoot
Since his release from prison and subsequent retirement, OJ Simpson has turned to Twitter for his opinion on current affairs.
On Thursday, he decided to give his two cents to LeBron James, who was targeted by right-wing Conservatives for targeting the Ohio police officer who killed Ma’Khia Bryant.
LeBron first tweeted a photo of Nicholas Reardon, the Columbus officer who fatally shot Ma’Khia, titled “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY”.
LeBron has since deleted the tweet after receiving a lot of heat, but he followed up with an explanation of why he did it in the first place.
“I’m bloody tired of seeing black people killed by the police,” LeBron said. “I removed the tweet because it’s being used to create more hate. It’s not about an officer. It’s about the whole system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more RESPONSIBILITY. “
He also tweeted: “ANGER is doing something good for each of us and that includes me! However, gathering all the facts and clearing them up does it! My anger is still there for what happened to that little girl. My condolences to their families and may justice reign! “
Enter OJ who joined the chorus of people calling out LeBron for his tweet.
While OJ stated that he liked LeBron for working in his own community, he realized that LeBron was wrong on this matter and warned him to be patient.
“You cannot fight every battle. You know you have to choose your battles. It’s a war that needs to be waged, but sometimes you have to take your time and be a little more patient before commenting on some of these dire incidents with the police, ”OJ said. “LeBron should have waited.”
