LeBron James, along with countless others, are calling out Fox News host Laura Ingraham for telling black athletes to “shut up and dribble” while saying a white athlete has the right to share his opinion.
Back in 2018, Laura Ingraham famously commented on Lebron James and Kevin Durant discussing President Trump and politics.
On her Fox News show she spoke to the NBA stars directly, “it’s always unwise to seek politic advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball. Lebron and Kevin, you’re great players but nobody voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the politic commentary to yourself or as someone once said “Shut up and dribble”
Ingraham was blasted for being a “racist” at the time and doesn’t seem to be wanting to shake that image.
On a recent episode of her Fox show, she discussed NFL star Drew Brees speaking out against kneeling at games. Brees said, “I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America. I envision my two grandfathers who fought for this country during WW2. One in the army and one in the marine corp, both risking their lives to protect our country and to try and make our country and our world a better place. Every time I stand with my hand over my heart looking at that flag and singing the national anthem, that’s what I’m thinking about.”
