LeBron James deletes tweet about fatal Ohio Police shooting

Lebron James

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.
