‘Harmed a lot of people’ Lebron James brutally bashes Kyrie Irving over anti-Semitic post

LeBron James has spoken out about the recent issue over a tweet by former teammate and top player for the Brooklyn Nets, Kyrie Irving, where Irving was linked to a controversial incident that triggered fans to fury.

“I believe, you know, what Kyrie did cause some harm to a lot of people,” Following Friday night’s game against the Utah Jazz, the Los Angeles Lakers forward told reporters. “I don’t stand on the position to harm people when it comes to your voice or your platform,” James stated.

James also addressed the recent decision to remove Ye’s (previously Kanye West) appearance on the internet chat program “The Shop” due to the usage of “hate speech and highly hazardous stereotypes” in the broadcast.

“Because it was some hate conversation going on there, and I don’t represent that,” James stated. “Me, personally, I don’t condone any hate to any kind, to any race. To Jewish communities, to Black communities, to Asian communities. You guys know where I stand.”

Upon hearing of his suspension from the Nets on Thursday, Irving took to Instagram to express his regret. Irving’s meeting with club executives and Jewish leaders is required before he can return to the Nets. Still, general manager Sean Marks told reporters that the apology was “a start in the right direction.” After that, LeBron was questioned on that matter publicly.

“I hope he understands that what he said was harmful to a lot of people,” said James, He spent time on the Cleveland roster with Irving during his second tenure (2014-2017). “As humans, none of us are perfect. But I hope he understands what he did, or the actions he took were harmful to a lot of people.”

This is just one example of how openly fair LeBron has always been, which eventually won him a lot of admirers.
