NBA legend and former member of the Miami Heat, LeBron James, is explaining why he deleted a tweet about the deadly police shooting of a 16-year-old girl in Ohio.
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James reacted to the news on Twitter, in a now-deleted tweet, by sharing an image of the officer involved in the fatal shooting of Bryant, and wrote “YOU’RE NEXT” while hashtagging “ACCOUNTABILITY”.
.@KingJames, with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless.
The officer saved a young girl's life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact. pic.twitter.com/GTHn1VAAlf

He says the tweet was being used to create more hate.
No word yet from the NBA on the threat made on social media by LeBron James.
