LeBron James’ infamous tweet in the wake of the Ma’Khia Bryant shooting didn’t go over well with Fox Sports’ Marcellus Wiley.
Wiley, a former NFL player, was reacting to the NBA legend’s post, which included a picture of the officer who fatally shot 16-year-old Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday, along with the text “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.”
James, not really a fan of accountability himself, didn’t apologize for the tweet after he deleted it. In a self-contradictory statement, he said anger doesn’t do “any of us any good,” but that his “anger still is here for what happened that lil girl.”
LeBron James deleted this tweet but only after it had 39,000 likes. The man in the photo saved a young black girl from another young black girl who was going to stab her in the neck. He did his job. Now @KingJames put a target on his back. Is the @NBA okay with this??? pic.twitter.com/QegzyySnsI

ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!
