NBA star LeBron James says he “fueled the wrong conversation about Ma’Khia Bryant” after he stoked controversy with a threatening tweet about the officer who fatally killed her.
The Los Angeles Lakers player said his quickly deleted tweet, which said, “YOU’RE NEXT” along with an hourglass emoji, “#ACCOUNTABILITY,” and what appeared to be a photo of the officer, made the conversation about himself rather than the teenager.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I fueled the wrong conversation about Ma’Khia Bryant and I owe it to her and this movement to change it,” he said, linking to a Vox article titled “Why they’re not saying Ma’Khia Bryant’s name.” “Thank you @fabiolacineas for educating us about Ma’Khia and her story and why this needs to be about her. #sayhername #Blacklivesmatter.”

The original tweet that started the outrage from James was deleted shortly after he posted it to his account. The tweet was interpreted by many to be anti-police and widely criticized.
James said the reason he deleted the tweet was “because its being used to create more hate.”
He later tweeted an explanation saying, “This isn’t about one officer. It’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY.”
