For many years, basketball star LeBron James has wowed fans all over the world.
But recently, it seems like he can’t stop talking about politics.
The NBA player has been using his considerable fame to push “woke” politics whenever he can.
Although he is one of the richest, most successful Americans in the country, he maintains he’s a victim.
That kind of talk has not gone over well to the millions of people who helped him get where he is. And now, a new study is showing just who badly his politics have backfired.
From Daily Wire:
According to a study by Sports Insider, the 17-time All-Star is the most hated player in the NBA. The study used negative mentions of NBA players on Twitter in order to come up with the “most hated players in the NBA.” According to Mediate, over 70,000 tweets and hashtags were used in the study — including phrases such as “I hate LeBron” and “LeBron sucks” — along with other negative tweets, and James was found to be the most hated player in 24 states.
Ouch, that’s gotta hurt.
A study that looked at all the social media mentions of players discovered that LeBron James is the most hated figure in the NBA.
And you know it’s accurate, because this isn’t some poll that sampled just 500 people. This study looked at the unvarnished opinions of fans online.
Folks can get pretty honest about someone, when they are ranting on Twitter. And it seems like, out of all other NBA players, LeBron gets the most hate.
While some of that might be people upset over a painful loss, we can’t ignore the other details of this story.
For years, James was just a popular player, scoring victories in Cleveland, Miami, and beyond. People loved him for his incredible talent and relentless success.
But sadly, it seems LeBron took a page out of failed NFLer Colin Kaepernick’s book and put politics over the game.
Time and again, James has pushed woke politics over simply uniting the country. As a basketball star, he could inspire Americans to put aside their disagreements and find common ground.
Instead, the man appears to have drunk the Hollywood Kool-Aid and has swimming in the far left.
That might be why so many Americans hate him.
- LeBron James has been rated the “most hated” player in the NBA.
- The study looked at social media posts from across the country.
- James is known for his outspoken political views in recent years.
