LeBron’s political activism is so annoying, even people in other countries are sick of it.
International soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had enough of LeBron’s politics and he called him out in a recent interview.
Trust me, we’re all sick of it too, buddy.
LeBron sits around in his mansion and complains and gets all self-righteous about US politics, but this coward won’t say a peep about the atrocities happening in communist China because he doesn’t want to lose his cash flow.
Real “principled” guy, right?
LeBron is a complete and total hypocrite.
LeBron James was called out by a soccer star, who said the NBA legend should stay out of politics. James has responded to Ibrahimovic’s recommendation by saying, “I am kind of the wrong guy to go at.”
Ibrahimovic, a 39-year-old Swede who plays for Italy’s A.C. Milan, questioned the basketball player’s political and social activism in an interview with Discover+ this week.
“[LeBron] is phenomenal at what he’s doing, but I don’t like when people have some kind of status, they go and do politics at the same time,” Ibrahimovic said. “Do what you’re good at. Do the category you do. I play football because I’m the best at playing football. I don’t do politics. If I would be a political politician, I would do politics.”
“That is the big first mistake people do when they become famous and they become in a certain status,” he added. “Stay out of it. Just do what you do best because it doesn’t look good.”
Of course, LeBron was mad and lashed out, saying “I would never shut up about things that are wrong. I preach about my people, and I preach about equality. Social injustice. Racism. Systematic voter suppression. Things that go on in our community.”
“I use my platform to continue to shed light on everything that may be going on, not only in my community but around this country and around the world,” the Lakers star continued. “So, there’s no way I would ever just stick to sports because I understand how this platform and how powerful my voice is.”
“I speak from a very educated mind, so I’m kind of the wrong guy to actually go at because I do my homework,” LeBron.

Maybe LeBron should go do his “homework” on China and see how they treat their citizens and use that “big brain” of his to help the people who are most oppressed in this world, instead of making money on their beaten-down backs?
