LeBron James Blasts Fox News’ Laura Ingraham For Defending Drew Brees After He Criticized National Anthem Kneelers

NBA legend LeBron James just called out Fox News host Laura Ingraham for defending Drew Brees after the New Orleans Saints quarterback criticized those who kneel during the national anthem.

“He’s allowed to have his view about what kneeling and the flag means to him,” Ingraham said of Brees on Wednesday. “I mean, he’s a person. He has some worth, I would imagine. I mean, this is beyond football, though. This is totalitarian conduct.”

This hit a nerve with James, as Ingraham had famously told him to “shut up and dribble” when he talked about his liberal politics in 2018; he took to Twitter to post video of her attacking him. “If you still haven’t figured out why the protesting is going on,” James tweeted alongside the video. “Why we’re acting as we are is because we are simply F-N tired of this treatment right here! Can we break it down for you any simpler than this right here?” James went on to say that he won’t stop until he sees “CHANGE,” adding the hashtag: #ShutUpAndDribbleThisPowerfulBlackManComingFullSteam.

Ingraham responded to James on her show on Thursday night, saying that every American has the “God-given right” to speak out about any issue that they choose. “I think in order to heal and shed light on gross injustices, our country needs more dialogue, not less,” she said, according to The New York Post. “And we need more respect, not retribution.”

Ingraham added that most Americans are looking for “reconciliation” right now. “That means politicians, police and even cultural figures all working together,” she said. “All of us.” James had been one of the first public figures to shame Brees for daring to express an unflattering opinion of anthem kneelers.

While all Americans certainly can speak their minds as much as they please, we all would indeed be better off if James would recognize God-given rights to speak freely is a two-way street—Drew Brees included.
