FOX News and racist reporting are synonymous at this point. Moreover, they often get called out for their double standards as well. This time, Laura Ingraham and her racist reporting get called out by none other than LeBron James himself!

Laura Ingraham is a known racist

In case you didn’t know, Ingraham is a right-wing, pro-Trump FOX News host of the primetime show The Ingraham Angle. And this isn’t the first time she has been caught in controversy, PReviously, she downplayed the Coronavirus pandemic in New York and defended white supremacists too. However, this time Ingraham messed with King LeBron James.

But, this feud didn’t begin yesterday. It began 2 years ago when Laura Ingraham was accused of racist reporting of LeBron James and Kevin Durant. She told them to “shut up and dribble!” on air at FOX News after the two criticized Donald Trump.

In response to Laura Ingraham’s racist reporting, James said:

I will not just shut up and dribble. So, thank you, whatever her name is.

Here is his press briefing:

Now we jump on to recent events. Two days ago, Laura Ingraham, after criticizing LeBron James for making political comments, made a very different statement for New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. And funnily enough, he is white. Ingraham defended Drew Brees for calling Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players as anti-military and disrespectful to the flag. She said: 

Well, he is allowed to have his view about what kneeling, and the flag means to him. I mean, he’s a person. He has some worth.

Now, as expected, Laura Ingraham’s hypocrisy and obvious double standards did not go unnoticed. Complex Sports tweeted a video of the two incidents that showed Ingraham’s blatant hypocrisy. And it was obvious how different her tone was:

LeBron calls her out on Twitter

As soon as this video caught LeBron James’ eyes, he called out Laura Ingraham’s racist reporting and double standards. He specifically highlighted how different white Americans are treated from black Americans, saying:

If you still haven’t figured out why the protesting is going on. Why we’re acting as we are is because we are simply F-N tired of this treatment right here! Can we break it down for you any simpler than this right here???? And to my people don’t worry I won’t stop until I see

And of course, he didn’t just top at criticizing Ingraham. He wanted change so he started a hashtag trend:

#ShutUpAndDribbleThisPowerfulBlackManComingFullSteam

It’s a well-known fact that LeBron James always uses his fame and popularity for social activism. That too, especially for the African American community. He does not hesitate from speaking about injustices and other important social issues. Therefore, that sets him apart from other athletes of his stature. And this is very important at a time when Black Lives Matter is in the national news again after George Floyd’s murder. So, maybe now Laura Ingraham might put a lid on her racist reporting once and for all.
