A Cincinnati bar refuses to show any NBA games until Lebron James is expelled from the league after the anti-police tweet James put out this past week.
James had posted a photograph on Twitter targeting a police officer who shot and killed a girl while saving another girl from being stabbed and wrote the caption, “YOU’RE NEXT. #ACCOUNTABILITY.” James also posted an hour glass emoji indicating that time was running out.
The owner of ‘Linne’s Pub’, Jay Linneman, made a post on Facebook about his refusal to air any NBA game until James was held accountable for his threats and expelled from the league.
“If anyone wants to watch an NBA game, don’t come to Linnie’s Pub. We will not air them until Lebron James has been expelled from the NBA.” – Facebook Post from Jay Linneman
Linneman noted that if any high ranking elected official had posted something like that there would be outrage and a call for them to be removed from office.
“They just need to play the game and that’s it. Their opinion doesn’t really matter. They’re using their position to push their opinions, and that’s just not right.” – Jay Linneman
This is how you deal with #BLM & false Woke prophets like LeBron James.

Despite the outrage and threatening manor of James’ post, Twitter took no action against James.
And let’s not forget that self proclaimed ‘King’ James has said some blatantly racist things…
