You gotta hand it to celebrities. They really think they run everything. We wouldn’t care all that much if so many of them weren’t using their status to push woke politics every day. It’s gotten so bad, even famous athletes are abusing their influence to spread liberal politics.
Take so-called “King” Lebron James. The man is one of the richest, most entitled human beings on the planet. Yet he continues to burn bridges by pushing politics off the court. But even on the court, he proves himself to be a spoiled child. Just take this recent display during a game.
LeBron James threw himself on the floor and proceeded to wail like a scorned child toward the end of regulation in the Lakers’ 125-121 loss to the Celtics.
The moment came at the end of the game as James was driving for what would have been the game-winning shot. As he made his way to the hoop, the refs missed a blatant call as a Celtics player fouled James on the arm while driving to the basket.
James definitely had cause to be upset. However, what ensued was one of the most childish pouting sessions ever seen.

Wow, that is ridiculous. It seems clear that the referee did fail to call a foul. But LeBron James’s antics were pathetically over the top. Keep in mind, this man has been playing basketball for nearly 20 years.
He has been fouled more times than we can count. And he should be used to refs missing calls from time to time. On top of that, he’s a grown man. Why is he crying and throwing a temper tantrum–in front of millions of viewers?
We wouldn’t really mind, if James hadn’t made himself a spokesperson for the woke left in recent years. Everyone has a bad day. But when someone uses his fame to scold the United States, criticize our leaders, and trash our history… well, let’s just say we don’t give them a pass.
LeBron earns multi-millions for playing a ball game. Even with this loss, he’s still considered one of the greatest players of all time. But I guess when you are super rich and are pampered every moment of the day, you think you can get away with this kind of stuff.
The rest of us? We’ll just keep being grown-ups.
- LeBron James had a temper tantrum at the end of a recent game.
- The ref failed to call a foul, so LeBron ranted and threw himself on the ground.
- LeBron has long used his fame to push leftist politics and woke ideas.
