According to NBCNews:
LeBron James explained his decision late Wednesday to delete a tweet about the fatal police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio.
The Los Angeles Lakers star tweeted a photo Wednesday afternoon that appeared to show the officer who was involved in the shooting of Bryant with the caption: “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.”
Backlash was swift, with Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., accusing the NBA champion of inciting violence against a police officer.
“This is disgraceful and dangerous,” he tweeted. “Is the NBA okay with this? Is Twitter?”
