On Christmas Eve, NBA star LeBron James sparked outrage on the internet after posting a provocative meme about Covid-19 on his Instagram account. Covid, cold, and flu were separately written on the meme, which shows three similar Spiderman pointing with their fingers. It is claimed that LeBron was joking with the famous Spiderman meme template by implying that Covid-19, the cold symptoms, and the flu are not distinct ailments. “Help me, folks,” he said with a shrug emoji on the image.

About Lebron James

LeBron Raymone James (aka LeBron James), nicknamed King James, is an American professional basketball player who was born on December 30, 1984, in Akron and is widely regarded as one of the best all-around players of all time. He has won NBA seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, and Cleveland Cavaliers.

James has been a basketball genius in the Akron area since early school days. He was crowned “Ohio’s Mr. Basketball” three times while leading “St. Vincent-St. Mary High School” to three Ohio titles in his four years career on the squad. In his early years, LeBron made headlines when he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated and called “The Chosen One.” Later, James was awarded the “Consensus National High School Player Of The Year,” and the “Cleveland Cavaliers” picked him first in the 2003 draft of NBA players. He also signed a remarkable $90 million endorsement agreement with Nike before even playing a pro match.

As per Meaww, at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece, James made his first appearance for the United States national team. In eight games, he played largely on the bench. On average, he played 14.6 minutes per game with 5.8 points and 2.6 rebounds. Since introducing current NBA players to their roster, team USA won a bronze medal in the tournament, making them the first American basketball team to not win a gold medal. James said his short game time was a “lowlight” and that he was not given “a fair opportunity to play;” blogger Adrian Wojnarowski called his behavior during the Olympics “disrespectful.”

James has amassed even more funds and fame from the game due to a slew of sponsorship deals. He has appeared in documentaries, books, and ads on television. He has presented the “ESPY Awards” and “Saturday Night Live” and won 19 ESPY titles.

How People Reacted To The Meme?

The meme, unfortunately, was not received smoothly with even LeBron’s most ardent supporters, who questioned whether their beloved Lakers player had turned into a conspiracy theorist. Some even suspected that LeBron spoke with Kyrie Irving, an outspoken Brooklyn Nets star who does not want to be immunized. Similarly, when LeBron was offered the vaccine boost, he had voiced doubts about it.

Under the COVID-19 regulations, LeBron James’ Los Angeles Lakers team and head coach Frank Vogel lost numerous important players, including Trevor Ariza, Avery Bradley, Austin Reaves, Kent Bazemore, and Malik Monk. In fact, they only had 12 players in their last match against the Nets.

Though several celebrities and sportsmen ignore Covid vaccination restrictions and other standards, the virus’s lethal Omicron strain is already causing havoc. Experts estimate that between January and March 2022, the strain will induce 140 million new infections in the US alone. That is over 60% of the population of the United States.

Many people misinterpreted LeBron’s unsuitable meme in such a moment, and they criticized the NBA star for his ignorance. One user told, “Leconspiracytheory,” and another added, “LeControversialpost.” “LeBron is giving the gift of drama on the Gram this Christmas Eve,” one fan said, while another surmised that “Bro spoke to Kyrie (Irving).”

One user questioned, “Is that your king?” The user said LeBron just downgraded a worldwide health catastrophe by posting this meme. Many fans speculated that LeBron may suffer major NBA repercussions as a result of his provocative meme and other users branded him a Republican, or even more accurately, a “Republican.”

On the other hand, LeBron seems unmoved by the issue, posting a series of nice images and wishing everybody a Merry Christmas.

Previous Issues For Which Lebron Was Trolled

LeBron was also trolled in November after Kyle Rittenhouse was declared not liable on all counts on November 19, including the death of two people at a Kenosha incident last year. After the verdict, LeBron was severely mocked on Twitter. LeBron James opted to ridicule Rittenhouse earlier that month after he sobbed on the witness stand at the Kenosha County Courthouse. While reminiscing about what happened on August 25, James reposted a tweet from USA Today about Rittenhouse’s collapse. The post captioned, “What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man, knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”

He also became the headline for a snarky Twitter retort to a bar owner who wants him kicked out of the NBA. Linne’s Pub owner Jay Linnenan said that his pub would not play NBA matches on TVs until James was “expelled” from the league. “Aww Damn! I was headed there to watch our game tonight and have a drink! Welp,” James replied. When James published a tweet last week criticizing policeman Nicholas Reardon, who fatally shot Ma’Khia Bryant, a Black girl in Ohio, he received blowback from law enforcement sympathizers. Reardon was seen on camera firing four times at Bryant as she surged at another female, clutching what seemed to be a knife.
