Sooo, the other day, #LeBronJames received some backlash for posting a photo with lyrics that read, “We been getting that Jewish money, everything is Kosher,” captioning it, “Getting that Jewish money”.
The lyrics are from #21Savage’s song “ASMR,” and people apparently thought it was inappropriate for Bron Bron to post that as he got dragged for it. LeBron says he thought it was a “compliment,” and did take the time to apologize.
“Apologies, for sure, if I offended anyone,” he told ESPN. ”That’s not why I chose to share that lyric. I always [post lyrics]. That’s what I do. I ride in my car, I listen to great music, and that was the byproduct of it.”
Adding “So, I actually thought it was a compliment, and obviously, it wasn’t through the lens of a lot of people. My apologies. It definitely was not the intent, obviously, to hurt anybody.”
ESPN also reports that LeBron will not be fined for captioning his photo with those lyrics!
Surprised LeBron, who makes very few mistakes, put this out. Does quoting lyrics from a song absolve the person quoting from the responsibility behind the words? I’d argue no, especially with a following of 45 million. pic.twitter.com/efv9gkXres
