LeBron James is one my favourite Twitter followers. His account’s blue checkmark will be removed and he will no longer be verified. But I am certain I can tell that it is him, because no one else has the same unique perspective as he does. It can be summarized in one word.
We’ll get to that in a moment.
NBA Superstar and non G.O.A.T. LeBron took to Twitter earlier in the day to give his opinion on the new Twitter rule Elon Musk is about implementing: charging for a check mark.
Here’s what he said.
LeBron James takes a stand on the eve the next era in Twitter.
Twitter is planning to retire legacy verified accounts this Wednesday, according to Elon Musk. This means that only those who pay for Twitter Blue will be able to keep their blue checkmarks.
Twitter has been free for its entire existence, with the exception of the mental toll it takes to its users. Many Twitterers have refused to pay a monthly fee in return for a blue check that may not hold any value.
James was among them on Friday.
Guess what? My blue checkmark will soon disappear because if you know me, I don’t pay the 5.
It’s 8 dollars per month, Kobe wannabe. However, I don’t know the exact amount as I haven’t checked out the rules for getting one of those sweet, bright check marks.
This is the latest example of a leftist pussy oozing on Twitter with pre-approved talking points about Elon Musk. Musk bought Twitter and is trying make it a profitable business. LeBron isn’t wrong for reciting these points, as his primary job is to win games with the Los Angeles Lakers and win championships. He does not do a good job at that.
Why should I expect him to understand basic principles such as free speech and how businesses make their money when he’s already made a lot of money playing a child’s game? God bless him for it. I don’t think anyone should be denied millions of dollars for playing sports. But, I don’t take any criticisms of anything too seriously, unless they are talking about shoes or socks.
I hesitate even if they get endorsement money for their recommendation.
If anyone follows LeBron’s Twitter posts, they will know that he enjoys criticizing the United States. This is his God-given right. He doesn’t seem to criticize China as the NBA is trying get a foothold there.
LeBron James Discovers a New Way To Criticize America, But Remains Quiet about China
LeBron will be critical of the country that allows him to criticize her, not totalitarian nations like China. He seems to have a voice about everything, including the horrible mass shootings, politicians, legislation and protests. But not the riots or the death of Ethan Liming (17 years old) that occurred in LeBron’s “I Promise School” Akron, Ohio. And no comment on China and the forced labor in Xinjiang.
James is too picky about what to talk about and what to keep quiet about. He needs to be consistent. He should talk about the horrific mass shooting at his school in Akron in Ohio if he wants to discuss it. If he doesn’t, it is obvious that he is a hypocrite. America allows him to choose the topics he wants to speak about. This is unlike other countries, which prohibit criticism of the government or country.
This is what I intended to do on Twitter, but I saw that someone else had already done it. So I left it at that.
As I don’t expect much of Joe Biden, I don’t expect too much from athletes. I hope they wake up every day and that their families don’t have to be in China for menial labor making shoes for Nike.
I won’t be quite as rude as those who say DRIBBLE and SHUT UP, but I prefer that everyone can speak. This will allow me to determine who is a liberal pussybag–and who I shouldn’t mock. But, LeBron let me know once again that he won’t be the Greatest of All Time for his day job playing basketball or for tweeting diss about things that aren’t quite right. Just like his NBA Final appearances.
This is so funny to me that I may just take Queen James’s slack and get one of those blue checks marks. Because I love free speech, and will not be bowing down to China anytime soon.
