LeBron James Accused Of Being A Snitch After Having 2 Courtside Pacers Fans Ejected From Game
Is LeBron James a snitch, or did he just stand up for himself?
Yesterday night (Wednesday, Nov. 24th), the Los Angeles Lakers took on the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis. While many fans are focusing on LeBron James‘ high-ranking performance throughout the match, others are honing in on another incident from the game.
At one point during overtime, LeBron James took a referee by the arm and led him to a pair of courtside Pacers fans. After pointing out a man and woman, LeBron can vaguely be heard saying:
“This one right f**king here.”
One of LeBron‘s teammates, Russell Westbrook, then enters the frame and seemingly sides with him. Immediately afterwards, the two Pacers fans are kicked out.
After the game concluded, LeBron James addressed the matter by saying:
“Nothing is uncomfortable for me, but there’s a difference between cheering on your home faithful, booing opponents and things of that nature or not wanting opponents to be successful. And then there’s moments where it goes outside the line, where I see gestures and words. And that shouldn’t be tolerated in our game from nobody. A fan should never say that to a player, and that’s it.”
While it’s currently unclear what exactly the ejected couple had said, there are some rumors circulating that it had to do with LeBron‘s teenage son, LeBron “Bronny” James Jr.
Since the matter, fans have been fairly divided over the situation. It’s also worth noting that “LeSnitch” and “Karen” both began trending on Twitter due to the incident, and you can see what some users had to say down below:
