Cincinnati Bar says it will no longer put up any NBA games until LA Lakers star player LeBron James gets expelled.
Local media outlets spoke about how the owner of the Cincinnati Bar released a statement, right after LeBron James issued a Tweet that addressed the Ohio-based cop who killed a 16-year-old black teen in a fatal shooting incident that took place this week.
The bar owner, Jay Linneman, explained in his statement how the games could only go back on television at the Delhi Township which is the home to Linne’s Pub if LeBron gets expelling from the basketball league.
The famous basketball forward player turned plenty of heads when he wrote the tweet but later deleted it, as controversy sparked great outrage on social media.
In the same way, former US President Donald Trump also called the star player out for his actions, referring to him as a racist who was keen on dividing the nation with his remarks. Many critics also slammed the player because they felt that he was taking advantage of his leading audience and many followers by downplaying the actions of the 16-year-old teen who was fatally shot because he failed to acknowledge how she possessed a knife during the time of her killing.
Recently, LeBron James has gone forward and released another post, where he mentioned how anger from any individual isn’t good, and that definitely includes him too.
But that simply wasn’t good enough for Linneman who boldly announced recently his ‘no NBA games on television policy.’ Moreover, he added how tired he was regarding all of the statements that came from so many athletes too.
“These players just need to focus on playing the game, that’s it,” he mentioned. ‘Their opinion on issues like these simply doesn’t matter. Therefore, they need to stop using their great positions to push out their opinions, and that just isn’t right,” he added.
