LOS ANGELES, California (WJW) – The Los Angeles Protective League has sent a letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, requesting a formal investigation into a tweet sent out by LeBron James.
James posted a tweet with the officer’s picture and wrote, “You’re next #ACCOUNTABILITY.”
He later deleted the tweet saying it was being used to spread hate.
He talked on “The Ingraham Angle” this week.
“LeBron James sent that tweet out to over fifty million followers to incite violence is basically what that tweet did,” McBride told Laura Ingraham.
“…No officer wants to take a life, but I’ll tell you one thing, that officer saved a life and he’s a hero,” McBride said.
The NBA has not responded.
