Sen. Ted Cruz sent a blistering message to China-apologizer and NBA star LeBron James, who says anyone supporting freedom fighters in Hong Kong are “uneducated.”
Cruz told LeBron, “kissing up to Chinese communists and tyrants and apologizing for murderers, that’s not a good look.”
Cruz went after LeBron after his infamous (and uneducated) comments on China, saying it sounds like LeBron is “more interested in money and making bucks” than standing up for human rights.
Cruz is referring to LeBron’s constant attacks against the Houston Rocket’s GM Daryl Morey, who posted a pro-Hong Kong tweet.
LeBron said the Rockets GM was “not educated” on the topic.

Cruz went on to say, “I don’t have a problem with [athletes speaking out on politics]. What I have a problem with is when they don’t know what they’re talking about and they end up defending tyrants.”
