LeBron James kicked up controversy on Twitter earlier this week when he demanded "accountability" for the police officer who fatally shot 16-year-old Ma’khia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio.
King James ended up deleting the Tweet, perhaps after taking a closer look at the video of the shooting, which shows Bryant inches away from thrusting a knife into another human when she was shot.
But that wasn't enough for likely double-murder OJ Simpson, who took after James in a Twitter video.

"You can't fight every battle. Sometimes you need to take your time and be a little more patient before you comment on some of these bad incidents that are happening with some police departments," Simpson said. "What I saw when I saw the full thing, the police guy had no choice, he responded. We wish he could have pulled a taser, we wish he could have done it in another way, but in that instance, if he hadn't done what he did, it appears to me that another young American would have had her life taken. I can't fault what he did. I wish it were different, but I can't fault it."
Boosie Badazz was not happy that The Juice weighed in as he did.
“O.J. Simpson… How the hell you gonna tell LeBron to be quiet about speaking up our race, you supposed to be speaking up our race,” said Boosie said on Instagram Story. “I was cheering for you! We got you free The Black community got you free. And you want to tell them to chill out? You need to chill out. You better chill out. Get the f*ck out Lebron nuts. You wrong man. You supposed to be on the front line for this Black sh*t.”
Who's right here? Say what you will about OJ, but he understands the damage a knife can do.
