Just one day after tweeting out “accountability” following the guilty verdicts in the Derek Chauvin trial, LeBron James Wednesday tweeted a photo of the officer believed to have shot and killed a teen girl in Columbus, Ohio, calling for accountability.

In the since-deleted tweet, James wrote, “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY,” in an apparent reference to the consequences faced by Chauvin, who has been convicted of murdering George Floyd last May.

Ma’Khia Bryant, a 16-year-old Black girl, was shot and killed by a Columbus police officer Tuesday afternoon while allegedly attempting to stab another girl.

On Wednesday, dozens gathered in the neighborhood to protest the fatal shooting.

James, a native of Akron, Ohio has been an outspoken advocate for social justice causes in the past, often speaking out in support of Black Lives Matter.
