A GoFundMe page for an Idaho police officer who went viral mocking LeBron James has raised over $200,000.
Police officer Nate Silvester was suspended for posting the viral video mocking the NBA superstar’s response to the shooting death of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant earlier this month, and the fundraising page launched to support him has raised $222,191 in just two days.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The recent viral TikTok video of a cop calling out Lebron James has cost the cop, my best friend in the world, Officer Nate Silvester a suspension without pay,” the page’s organizer, Gannon Ward, wrote. “He’s still got his job for now, but apparently the town where he polices didn’t find his TikTok as amazingly comical, and accurate as the 4.5 million viewers did, including some major news networks.”
DMLNewsApp update: As of this report Friday evening, the GoFundMe account for Officer Silvester is up to $248,000, with contributions from over 7,600 donors.
NBA star LeBron James had posted a now-deleted tweet, threatening, “YOU’RE NEXT,” to a police officer who shot knife-wielding teen Ma’Khia Bryant earlier this month.
Silvester, a police officer in Bellevue, Idaho, posted a humorous video on TikTok mocking James, as he pretended to put in a call asking James what to do in a stabbing incident. Silvester was suspended from the force for a week as punishment for the video. WATCH:

On Thursday, Silvester posted another video, humbly thanking the thousands of people who have shown their support, as the GoFundMe had just crossed the $100,000 mark.
“I’m speechless,” Silvester said. “We have a voice now, and we’ve learned that, and we’re going to use it to stand up for law enforcement officers all over this country. We’re not going to tolerate being attacked or vilified in the media anymore.”
“We will not be attacked or vilified in the media any more”
