LeBron James speaks out on Charlottesville attack

LeBron James spoke out on the violence and white nationalist rally taking place in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday evening via Twitter.

James tweeted that “it’s sad what’s going on in Charlottesville,” after a car plowed into counter-demonstrators protesting white nationalists in Virginia. In the process, James also seemingly took a shot at President Donald Trump, invoking his campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”

James is one of the most active NBA players when it comes to speaking out on social and political issues. He’s done everything from campaigning for former President Barack Obama, to wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” shirt protesting the death of Eric Gardner. This past year, his Los Angeles home was also vandalized with racist graffiti.
